I say finally because it seems like he has been three forever (maybe that's why I'm so sad he's going to be in Nursery for another year...remind me not to have another kid in January). I have the problem where I round-up numbers and then when times comes to finally get to that number it seems like they should be the next number. I do this with birthdays, anniversaries, things like that. Anyway..Happy Birthday Caden! This poor guy always gets kind of overlooked on his birthday. Remember when I forgot his birthday one year, and only remembered because a neighbor brought a present over for him? Yeah, that was embarrassing. So I tried to make it special this year, but it probably seemed like just another day. He got a cupcake for breakfast (breakfast of champions....wish you could have had one, don't you!) and sugar cereal (because I didn't put the box away from using it for the cupcakes...oops)
So, these are the cupcakes that he got for breakfast. I thought it would be fun to have some kids come over and eat cupcakes with him, so since it was playgroup, I had a few people just head over to my place. Nothing special, but hey, what can you do? Before everyone got there to eat cupcakes we had a picnic.
My kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE picnics. And so that's what we did that day. Just on our front lawn, and nothing really special for lunch (PB&J...it's what Caden requests every day...and I do mean every) just chocolate milk.
He opened presents, and that was about the extent of his birthday. He was pretty easy to shop for though. All he asked for was a "Thomas the Train", so thank you Ross for having a cheap Thomas. Oh, we got him a soccer ball too because he's really getting into sports.
This picture wasn't taken on his birthday (but his grandparents did get him a football) I just thought it was really cute!
Since there was no school on Monday, Scott and Carol Lee were able to come down and celebrate his birthday. They took us to the Dinosaur Museum and played football with Caden and we had more cake!
Scott, this picture is for you, since you insisted that I take it :)
Happy 3rd Birthday little man! We love you tons, and can't wait to see what the next year will bring for you.
