When we brought home a big cake from Costco for Austin, that's what he said...."i have my cake!, i'm 4 now!". Even though his birthday wasn't until the next day. It made us laugh. He had been talking about his birthday for months and months. Every toy or lego magazine that came through the house was repeatedly looked through as he pointed and explained to us the things he wanted for his birthday. For literally months he did this. No other child of ours has ever been so obsessed about a birthday. Not like this. Austin is hilarious. He says very funny things all the time. He also throws some pretty awesome tantrums that usually test our patience skillz to no end. Nevertheless, we love him to pieces. So, we couldn't help but go a little "all out" for his birthday with how excited and eager he was to turn 4. We didn't have a big party, it was more about the goods and the cake for him. We had a few neighbor kids over and kept it simple with cake and ice-cream. We had a couple tears from the birthday boy with so much excitement, but other than that...a great little party for our little man.
The cake idea was inspired by my sister's awesome star wars cake she made for her son and Austin did want one JUST like it. I had all the good intentions in the world to make him one just like it, but I copped out in the end and snagged a cake at Costco when we were there doing the shopping. When I brought it home, Austin did say to me, "why didn't you get me a star wars cake?". I felt like a terrible mother even though I did have plans to decorate it with star wars action figures like my sister had done. I was so worried about it, but he seemed pretty happy with the result. Austin LOVES clones and Darth Vader! We found the cool Vader candle at Party City which I think was the perfect touch to the cake. Anyway, enough of the cake saga!
