Aidan's 3rd Birthday party

Last Saturday we celebrated Aidan's 3rd birthday with lots of family and friends.

We all enjoyed plenty of food...
singing "Happy Birthday" to Aidan...
reading birthday cards...
and opening presents.
Then there was all the playing with friends....
and giving them all jeep rides.

Oh, and the cake. Aidan asked for a dinosaur cake. Specifically a triceratops cake. Luckily a friend had made one before and gave a pictorial on how to make it. So, it was 1 in the morning the night before the party and I had just finished decorating the cake. I had been doing so for about three hours. It looked really cute and I was so relieved to be done. I started cleaning up to go to bed and I looked over and part of the cake had cracked in half (apparently you are supposed to use supports). I was so tired I couldn't do anything about it. So, the next morning I woke up and started to try and "save" the cake. It actually turned out pretty good.

Here it is while we are singing to Aidan:
P.S. Originally I was going to just leave the cake. We were just going to cut and eat it anyway. I told Aidan I had made his cake but it had broken. He informed me that I had to fix it cause he didn't want everyone to see the cake broken.

Aidan is THREE!

Today Aidan turned three years old. Three years ago today I was about to become a Mommy. I didn't have any idea how that would feel until he was born. Sure, I could imagine, but I never really knew until the moment he was in my arms. It was one of the best feeling in my life. I could not even begin to describe the love that poured out of me.

Aidan has become such a little boy, a little person. He is full of energy, he is extremely funny, very strong willed, and intense. He knows what he wants, and doesn't have a problem telling you. He likes many thing to be a certain way, like he needs to line up his cars before we leave the house or go to bed. He loves to be outside. If we could spend all day, every day outside, he would. He loves to play with critters. Ants, lady bugs, dragonflies, he loves them all. He loves his sister, although he likes to beat her up a little as well.

To celebrate Jon got out of work early, and we took Aidan to chuck E cheese to play some games. It was really nice to be able to spend time with just him. He picked out Moe's for dinner, and then we headed home to the rest of the family for cake and ice cream.

When we got home this was waiting for him from Nana and Grandma:
the kids had so much fun with this. They played with it until bedtime.

Aidan wanted a dinosaur cake. This is what I made for today. Stay tuned for the cake for Saturday's party.
Aidan gobbled up the cake and had a frosting face to show for it.
Peyton also got to enjoy a little cake, and enjoy she did! She ended up with a frosting face too.
Aidan had such a fun day! He didn't want to go to bed. (does he ever?) Jon brought him up crying because he did not want to stop playing with his new toys.

Aidan, THANK YOU for making me a Mama, your Mama. I love you! Happy Birthday!
