I love my birthday of course (and have been known to celebrate it for weeks), but I also love celebrating the birthdays of people I love, so when it comes to A, I go a little birthday-crazy...
This year is especially fun because he gets it. So the celebrations started on Thursday ( the day before his actual birthday) with cupcakes at school. On Friday, I thought it would be fun to have Mickey Mouse wish him a happy birthday on the phone (you can set it up on Disney Junior's website). He hated it! (his reaction --seen below -- is pretty funny!)
On Saturday, SleepyPapa's parents and aunt and uncle came for a birthday lunch. A was excited again. I am not sure why he had made up in his mind that they were bringing him a fire truck, and he kept talking about it. There were no fire trucks, but we had more cake (I made a French cake called Fraisier, which turned out to be delicious -- what did people do before Internet recipes by the way?), and there were more presents... which he definitely enjoys... (note the small cars on the bottom of the picture)
Finally, on Sunday, it was time for the birthday party he had been waiting for since February... the kids' birthday party at MyGym! Those parties may be pricey, but it was well worth the money. The only things I had to do were: making cupcakes, ordering pizza, and making favor bags. The kids had an absolute blast, there was no fighting over toys, and no mess to clean up!
