Happy birthday, Zoodle

Oh, my sweet boy. Four years ago you made our family complete (barring any surprises in the future, anyway!) I'm so glad you made me the mommy of a son.

We had Zoodle's party Saturday. (And try explaining to a four-year-old that it is indeed his "real" and "actual" birthday party even when it's not on his birthday. And that he doesn't get a second party on the day of his birthday.)

He wanted a Spider-Man cake. I haven't had the motivation for five-hour decorating jobs lately, so I bought a plastic cake topper off Amazon. (It even says, "Happy birthday from your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!" when you push a button on it.) Knowing that a Spider-Man cake should have lots of red on it...and knowing how awful homemade red frosting tastes...I used white buttercream with lots of red sugar sprinkles. Cute, easy, and still tasty.

Here's my boy this morning...officially four years old!

I fully expect him to have a happy birthday. He's pretty good at bringing happiness to every day!

Happy (real) birthday, Zoodle! I can't believe the little man is 4. Hope he has a happy smiley day, even if he doesn't get another party!

Adorable. You would be shocked at how much my 4-year-old so Reagan and Zoodle look alike. I have to send you a pic for evidence! Can I email you?

The cake looked so beautiful and tasted great.
Can't believe that he is such a big boy already. Nonetheless, he is totally cute and sometimes I just want to squeeze him.
