We went British this year as we celebrated Traveling Man’s big 4-0 on Saturday! He almost shares
a birthday with our littlest who turned 3 on Sunday, so we gathered loads of our dear friends
and had the nicest time celebrating them both.
I couldn’t find a British flag quick enough, so I painted a loose interpretation on an inexpensive canvas.
I wasn’t so sure about the result but since my husband loved it, well, then it had to stay!
I was not going to make a cake this year because I had already made cupcakes, but at the very last minute I decided to
make a chocolate cake because I wanted the boys to have something more than a cupcake to put candles in.
The first cake stuck to the pan, so with only an hour before the guests arrived, I whipped up another cake and iced
it just as the doorbell rang. Of course, I was in full party mode after that and forgot to take a picture!
I think star paper straws make every drink taste better!
We even had my favorite sugar cookies, though I forgot to eat one! (I remembered the next day!)
I have to laugh a bit at ourselves because once our guests arrived it didn’t even occur to us to
take photos! Some photographers we are, right? Here is a little peek of Landon, our littlest
blowing out his candles again on Sunday…
Here he is counting his candles… one, two, one, two…
Guess we’ll have to work on three and one for good luck!
We were all still in our pj’s after our late night celebration, but he was insistent on wearing his hat.
He gets whatever he wants on his day and besides, I thought it was so cute!
And, I at least got a photo of a slice of his cake!
We asked him how old he was and kept responding, “Landon!” He sounds a bit like
my husband and I when we someone asks us a question in Danish!
He eventually started saying, “fwee!” and it was sooo cute!
