It was a simple, busy celebration last evening, but it was "big" to a little guy who turned "5".
To add color to the table and recognize him, I covered a cardboard box with blue tissue paper, printed some recent pictures of him, added two balloons, some race cars and car paper plates.
For the cake, I put two brownies baked in square pans, with chocolate icing, side by side and covered them with whipped cream. For the road lines I used black licorice. I added his favorite cars, candles, and some M&Ms for fun. It took me only a few minutes to put this together since the brownies were done before hand. He was happy with it!
The candles were blown out immediately. Next thing he did...went for the candy.
It did not take long to have this simple creation, look like this.
Yes, it definitely was a fun, but oh, so busy celebration.
"Mischief with dirt on his face,
Boo-boos from running a race,
Bubblegum stuck in his hair,
The hope of the future to share."
Thank heaven for Little Boys!
