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.

The cake looks awesome!!! Great job. I know how much work it is so I can imagine your pain when the head cracked...at least you can't tell at all from the final product.

Aiden's part looks like it was a lot of fun, wish we could have been there to help him celebrate. Our babies are getting so old!

Aidan sure does keep you on your toes. No slacking allowed. I think the cake was great--I was mighty impressed, and the party was lots of fun.

Even though this comment is a little late, I *still* can't believe Aidan is THREE. Wow, time flies. Awesome-looking cake and party!
