After seeing Isaac looking at cakes on Pinterest with me for his birthday, Drew thought he could look through Pinterest for me and pick out any Ninjago cake he wanted. Ha! Mommy isn't quite that talented, and she definitely doesn't have enough time for that. I told him he could look with me, but there are limitations that he doesn't understand so I get the final say. We settled on this Lego Ninjago head cake after I strongly suggested it. He had trouble deciding which of the characters he wanted, so I nudged him in the direction of the white one (whatever his name is) so I'd have one fewer step by not having to color more icing. This is the new and improved mom of six kids that has eactly two hours between little one's bedtime and my bedtime to make and decorate it in, not the young and energetic mom of one kid who made a castle cake that took the entire day for a one year old who didn't notice or care.
|Lego Ninjago Cake, I hope it doesn't look too much like a sheep. It didn't look so sheepish in person.|

My parents were in Scotland visiting a friend during his birthday and the birthday weekend. In addition to that, Brian was gone on the weekend that would have been best for a party. Throw in Hannah's appendectomy that had happened on the Thursday before and all hope for a party in the same month was gone.
|After German Kindergarten with his loot. You may not be able to see his crown for all the hair, but they hand made him a braided paper crown. He was not amused and did not want to wear it, but he claimed that they made him.|
