Pictures from Dex's 3rd birthday party. He's all about Thomas these days, so I found Thomas wrapping paper, plates, napkins, and cups, and made a Thomas cake. I made it the day before his birthday, and every time he'd go in the kitchen he'd say "There's my Thomas cake, Mommy!" And then every day after his birthday (since we had a ton left over), he'd come in the kitchen and tell me "I need cake!" Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it didn't matter. He NEEDED it. Like, really badly.
I'm still sad that his birthday is so close to Christmas, but I think it'll get better. We did invite our neighbors over for cake, and they have a little boy that's Dex's age and they had a big ol' time. That was nice :)
Happy Birthday, Declan!
A Thomas umbrella. He actually used this today when he was walking up to his "school," and he had a big smile on his face the entire time. He loved it!!
That fake "cheese" smile...
... and again...
That's a little better, although I think he's saying something here :)
Now for his favorite part. CAKE!
