Peter turned six! Yes, yes, we did have a birthday (almost two weeks ago), but it's kid birthday season (Ned's is in about two weeks) in our house and we're just calling it birthday month around here. So, excuse me if I'm a little late in posting this, but I'm still in celebration mode. Peter had a great day complete with candles in his morning pancakes and a visit to a friend's house in the afternoon where he ran a car track from their moose head antlers to the floor and saw their chickens. He loved it!
For those of you who followed on Facebook, I did go with strawberry skewers for his class treat. I am always appalled at the amount of sweets that end up at the class parties and I wanted to do something healthy. The kids loved it! Phew! I was a little worried. I printed the free flags from Fog and Thistle. I think I will do the same thing for Ned's class birthday treat.
I love this kid's smile. And that he has no trouble picking out the best flavor cake - that was one delicious chocolate cake. Thanks for making me a mom, Peter - you're a great kid!
I am still debating whether I will throw the boys a joint friend birthday party when the weather gets warmer. I told myself this was the year. Talk me into it please...
