He’s FOUR!

We still can’t believe it.

More and more when I look over at him, I see a big boy where my baby used to be.  I don’t know where the time has gone.  His personality is blossoming – and he’s FUNNY!  (I mean really.  Comic timing and all.)  He sings all the time, he makes up his own stories to narrate playtime, he talks a blue streak and can hold an interesting conversation, he’s empathetic and considerate – I don’t know how it happened, but he’s growing up to be a really great kid.

We’re so blessed.

SO…for the birthday fun.  They don’t want us to bring in cakes or cookies to school – too messy with 14 kiddos + frosting!  So, I adapted and ordered “Custom Black and White Cookies” from the Sugar Plum Bakery.  (The icing on a Black and White cookie is hard, so Liam’s teacher said that was fine.)

Well.  They came out AWESOME, but with a little too much black icing for me to feel comfortable.  I mean – gobs of black icing sort of defeats the purpose, y’know?  So we modified the plan – I wrapped up the Custom Cookies for each kiddo to take home with them, and brought in a Big Cookie to cut and share at school.  Worked great!

(Notice the apologetic note that says "Sorry about the icing, Mom and Dad - the bakery went overboard!" and the attached Wet Wipe...)

Who doesn't love wearing a Birthday crown all day?

With the Spring Show, Easter Party at School and then Easter itself all in the same ten day period, we opted not to have a big Birthday Party this year.  Liam was perfectly fine with the cookies at school and with having a cake to celebrate with family at Aunt Eva’s on Easter Sunday.  (This was likely the last Birthday we can get away without a party, so we took full advantage! ;) )

He had his heart set on a Thomas the Tank Engine Cake, and I had all intentions of making and decorating a 3-D version myself…but when I looked online and found a GREAT tutorial that looked as if it would take ten hours to finish…(including grey fondant for Thomas’s face that would need five days to dry!)…I caved and ordered one from the grocery store bakery.  It was bland with way too much frosting, and Liam LOVED it.

(That’s what matters, right?)

Liam is a very loved little boy, and he got lots of great presents from friends and family!  (Thank you cards are coming soon – we promise!) ;)

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you ought to write more on this
    topic, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not discuss such
    issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the plan of a user in his/her
    mind that how a user can be aware of it. So that’s why this article is great.
