so i have been a little MIA lately. blah blah blah. I am back and ready to go for next week! but first i wanted to share a little something about ello’s fourth bday!
recently ello turned four. due to some crazy scheduling the hus could not be there the night of his big day. BUT we forged on. First we celebrated at the beach because he loves that place i tell ya. thats when he wore his captain america costume (remember that instagram, my heart skips a beat when i see it) that his mema got him. right there on the 90 degree hot beach.
then we got out this fancy (just kidding) cake that we make every year. he said he wanted two things. 1. a chocolate cake 2. dinosaurs on top. like real live ones. i didn’t have any real live ones so this minis had to do. he ate it. he said it was the most disgusting cake he ever had in his whole life. then he licked the dinos feet. okay. moving on.
we got this adorable cake topper from the amazing lisa leonard and you know why i love it? first because i never have anything to plop on top of a cake when there is an actual celebration. when i am actually ready to get fancy and make the worst cake in the entire world, i have nada to put on top. and you want to know another secret. i have tons of candles, but i think this is the first time in 8 years of being a mom i actually lit the candles and one of my children blew them out because i always forget. sooo… a metal cake topper is rad for me. secondly, i can use this one for baby showers, school parties and whatever.
we told him his hair was going to light on fire so let us pull it back. he hated that idea. so we slicked it down real nice.
