A Pre-Birthday Celebration

My little peanut will be turning three on Saturday, but since we'll be in Florida, we had a little celebration this past weekend so that I could make him a cake, and he could celebrate with family in Idaho. His requests were quite simple - - a fire truck cake, macaroni and cheese for dinner, and his own computer, so he could "do the blogging".

I had told my mother about Griffin's desire to have his "own" computer, and she promptly sent me the link for this little gem. Griff just loves it, and when he catches me on my laptop, he will grab his and ask me if I'd like to "compute" or "blog" with him. Too cute.

Have you heard of the Plasma Car? My mother's friend Susan told her about it, and so she and Papa sent on to Griffin. It is the neatest thing I've seen in a long time - - no batteries or annoying sounds, just plain old fun. Griffin has spent most of the past three days, riding back and forth from the kitchen to the dining room on it. Here he is, giving a little demo:

And last, but not least, the fire truck cake. It didn't come out quite as nicely as I'd hoped, but I had two kids hanging off me for a good part of the decorating process. Griffin loved it though, so all's well that ends well.

I'm super happy that Griffin and Uncle Kevin will get to celebrate their "actual" special day together on Saturday...at Disney World!

ack! I don't usually store all my laundry on the dining room table...I'm in the middle of a drawer/closet purge this week...I swear!

Been there, done that with "stuff" appearing in photos :) Happy Birthday to Griffin. What a cute request for his birthday dinner, a man that knows what he wants! The plasma car is so cute! I am glad Griffin can "blog" when he wants to now! Have a wonderful trip.

Wouldn't it be fun if Griffin wrote an actual blog? I love that car-does it come in adult sizes?

Hey Kate that is the adult size...weight limit is 220 lbs., believe it or not! It is the coolest little car!
