We rounded out the birthday festivities with a birthday party this weekend with some of Nicky’s friends (album here). We ended up having ELEVEN littles, mostly about 2 years old, and their assorted parents. Even though the sun cooperated and came out, it was still cold and wet outside so nobody wanted to play in the backyard and we were all crammed inside our little house. It was TOTAL CHAOS. Nicky spent the first half of the party running around screaming for joy that he was having a party and then the second half running around screaming as he defended all his toys. He pigged out on multiple mini muffins, cake, jello and juice, all of which surely contributed to the overall chaos. Instead of making a cake I took the easy route and ordered a Thomas the Train cake from Safeway. Nicky loved it, especially the little train figurines that came on the cake, which he drove around on top of the cake destroying the frosting as we were serving it up. We also made a train jello cake to go along with the theme. Nicky sure was a happy boy celebrating with all his little friends. Baby Kate, on the other hand, was overwhelmed by all the activity and slept through the entire party in the front pack.
Alas, this is the end of the birthday bonanza. We’ll see how Nicky adjusts to life without cake, candles and presents in the coming days! Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us this week and made our little boy feel so special and loved!
