He got alot of presents as usual. He got some a new bike from mommy and daddy. We saved his big gift to give him at his party instead of his actual birthday. I am glad we had decided to do this especially since we came home from the hospital on his actual birthday too. He got clothes, movies, toys, a basketball hoop, a cars tent, a rocker thing (like a horse but not a horse), hand held video games, grandpa jim made him some mini wood golf clubs, a travel light brite (oh how I loved mine when I was younger), crayons and coloring books. Just all kinds of stuff. He loved it all, but especially his bike. He told us the other day that "It was the best bike he has ever seen." I am so glad he thinks so. I had to go to a few different store to find it.
Then we had cake and icecream. I made cupcakes actually. I made 40 plus cupcakes and decorated them to look like sports balls. We had footballs, baseballs, basketballs and soccer balls. The cupcakes were all the same, chocolate and yellow cake swirled. Then the footballs all had chocolate icing and the others all had cream cheese and just the basketballs I made orange icing with food coloring. Then designs on top were just little gel icing decorating things I got at the grocery store. One day before Valentines Day I found these valentines that were a box with sports ball chocolates in them. Well I got a few boxes of each kind, and didn't know exactly what I was going to do with them, but loved that it was our theme. So I decided to add them to the top of each of their coordinating cupcake. I think they turned out cute.
Well when everyone was over my sister in law Jamie showed me the invitations to her daughters birthday party and they are soooo stinking cute. It is a princess party and the invites are mini scrolls. They are adorable. I can't wait to get mine. I think that idea would be so cute as a little baby girl birth announcement too. I will share when I get mine.
