Party #2

I've been trying to write this post for a week now.  As promised, here are some pics from Aiden's family party a couple weeks ago.

I had so much fun with his birthday this year.  As I mentioned before, we made a big deal about him not being allowed to chew gum until he turned 4.  So, I decided to do a bubblegum theme.  Here's the excited birthday boy.

The most exciting thing I did was the cake....

It was surprisingly easy.  I found a picture online and then just went at it.  I baked a 9x13, cut it down, and a circle pan for the top.  I was super happy with the results.

I also did some special decorations.

A table full of gum...

I made this little garland with pics from each year of Aiden's parties.  My favorite is the first year...he screamed after we sang him Happy Birthday.

I found this idea on Pinterest.  You just thread a needle and put the balloons on.  So simple and looks great.  I will probably do this for every party now.

It was a great day.  

Here's Aiden's favorite gift from Uncle Richie and Aunt Nicole.

I love this picture...Aiden literally surrounded by people who love him a lot.  

Brady with his great-Grammy

Happy Birthday!

Love this kid.
