On a Brighter Note...

Well, our weekend ended better than it began.  My littlest man turned four!  We had a cozy little party yesterday with family.  Tate had specifically requested a purple and yellow race car with the number four on it for his cake.  This guy has ideas. Daddy was "happy" to oblige..  Mike, I really would have done it, but never as well as you! 



My personal contribution was to make him his own birthday crown.  His initial:



His jewels:


His Royal Highness:


These crowns are ridiculously easy and satisfying to whip up. (Amanda has instructions in her book if you can't figure it out just by looking at the pics.)  Can't wait to work on Cal and Ellerie's. I was really happy with the way it turned out.  I think the king was too.

Oh my gosh, this crown is an A+

So cute, and for a boy, it's hard for me to think of crafty things to make for my son...I'll make one for his birthday in March!

He looks so cute! Did your husband make that cake?

yes... mike made/decorated the cake. he is the resident baker and "artist." isn't it fun? he did a monster truck for cal last year. he always says he doesn't want to do it, but when i offer he says "good" and then ends up taking over! secretly loves it, i think!
