The birthday party

I'm going to spare you most of the pictures from Alex's third birthday party. As I started thumbing through them I realized most of them are of the top of his head as he concentrates on opening gifts. When am I going to learn that toddler gift opening is not a photo op?

So here we go:
Here's the cake with a disclaimer: these sad-looking little cupcakes may looked a little, um, sad, but oh, my they were happy eating. The frosting alone called for two sticks of butter. 'Nuff said.
(This is also one of two times a year you will not see a stage name. Now go forget you saw that...)

Thank goodness three-year-olds are too critical when it comes to cake decorating.

Okay, one gift-opening picture since I think that might be emotion on his face. He was darn happy that Ming-Ming made it to his party.

...and a little more birthday morning in the driveway.

One of these weekends when I am free I would love to come and hang out with my cousins, and of course my aunt and uncle. Maybe I could even watch them for a night so that you and Pete could go on a date! I think that sounds great. It's only an hour drive, I don't know why I haven't thought about that sooner.
