Happy Birthday Cedar!

This little guy recently celebrated his 5th birthday - January 29th to be exact. The picture where he is blowing out the candles; as his sister looks on, is actually his 4th birthday celebration. He had an army cake for that one. He put plastic toy soldiers all over the top of the cake including a few jeeps.

Here he is celebrating his 5th birthday.Looking at the expression on his face, I think he was concerned about the responsibility of holding the cake and not dropping it! He directed how he wanted it to be decorated with a racetrack, a start and finish line, and grass in the center. Again, he added toy cars to the track. He also wanted a pit crew and an area for the visitors to sit, but I had to convince him that there wasn't enough room on the cake for all that. Adding the white divided line down the race track brought a smile to his face, he hadn't thought about that, but I could tell it was an acceptable feature to the cake!

Older sister Angelica is holding the cake now, and the birthday boy is much more relaxed. It was a festive occasion spread out over a week, including family celebrations and kid celebrations. Turning 5 is pretty exciting! The littlest herb in our complex is growing up.
