I've been a bit absent this week but for good reason. Tomorrow is Big One's third birthday. Three! How did that happen? I keep asking myself that question. I still haven't found the answer. In about 7 1/2 hours he will officially be three.
Tomorrow we will celebrate with a special breakfast (M&M pancakes... yum!). He is going to decorate his own birthday cake. We baked it today. He loves to help in the kitchen! Then tomorrow after Hubs gets off work we'll all go to the Science Center. I'm so excited! This is the first year that he really seems excited for his birthday and actually understands that it's coming.
His big birthday party is Saturday and that's where most of my time is going this week. He insisted on a Cars party despite my best efforts to sway him towards something less commercial! I'm trying to pull of a 3D/carved cake. Actually 2. Lightening McQueen and Mater. Am I crazy? If not, I will be by Saturday. Hopefully they will turn out as great as I see them in my head. Sometimes ideas get lost in translation.
I also want to wish Amy Lou at spontaneous blah a happy birthday. Her big day is also tomorrow. She is a very talented writer so check her out! Happy birthday, Amy.
