Well, here is the creation! Definitely a first attempt and not so pretty, but tasted awesome. Gary had a great time pulling it off and Ayden Jane LOVED it! Actually, Mckenna is pretty sold on this version of a birthday cake herself! The fruit is not exactly dipped, it was more drowned, but truth is, AJ only ate a couple and was so into the presents it was not an issue.
Big girl blowing out the candles!
Grandma and Grandpa get big hugs for coming over and bringing presents!
On the big day, we kept things simple. Ayden Jane had been so over the top for several days about her birthday and we had 'celebrated' at school so on the actual day we just did a simple family 'party'. Basically, grandma and grandpa came over and we had 'cake', sang happy birthday and opened presents. It was great.
Ayden Jane loves to answer the question, "how old are you?" And is just overall thrilled to have reached age 4.
