How can it be? Our New Years baby turned five yesterday. How could he grow up so quickly?
We celebrated with a small party for close family. Our big boy had a ball playing with his new toys and eating birthday cake. He was thoroughly spoiled, once again.
Our sons helped decorate the cake earlier in the day. The birthday boy specifically requested a Yoda cake, so I dyed his cake batter green. Apparently, the candies on the cake represent a fierce light sabre battle. Our son also added a few Star Wars figurines to the top of his cake. Additional figures mysteriously appeared throughout the day. By cake-cutting time the Yoda cake sported roughly a dozen plastic toys (and less-than-perfect icing).
Happy Birthday Buddy! Daddy and Mommy are so proud of you!
