Birthday Boy!

Blake turned 3 last Saturday. If I think about it too much, I'd probably tear-up. I love his sweetness and cuteness at this age and I really don't want him to grow up, but unfortunately he will and is. (Although he promised me he would try to stay little.) :-)

Blake is a Lego lover (along with many other things-the little guy really knows how to play!), so when I saw a block cake on Betty Crocker's website, I had to make it for him! It fell apart on me while I was taking it out of the pan and crumbled like crazy when I tried to frost it despite it being frozen, but I still think it turned out cute :-)
At lunch, we had Blake's traditional McDonalds. We usually do McDonalds for breakfast, but we forgot. It's been a tradition since the day he was born. I went into labor super early in the morning and had been up so long that by breakfast I was really hungry. Morgan's labor had lasted SO long that I figured I might as well eat because it would be a while and Rich grabbed us some McDonalds....we've been doing it ever since :-)
Party time started at dinner where we had hot dogs, meatballs and a BUNCH of veggies! I even tried some new recipes to use the veggies up and everything went over really well! I know what to make next year! ;-)
Next, he opened presents and got all sorts, but only needed one! He was so anxious to play with his first toy, that it was like trying to pull teeth to keep him working on opening the rest! It was super cute though!
Blake with his cake, anxiously waiting for some fire to blow out! ;-)
This was taken as he was being sung to. He played shy and looked away from all the attention :-)

We also did little party favors for the kids for the first time this year...maybe jumped the gun a bit with him only being 3, but the kids loved them!

Blake had a really fun birthday and has been talking about it all week! I just wish it didn't mean my little guy is getting older :-/

Happy Birthday to Blake !!
I love the Lego cake & I'm going to check that out for my son. Ridge is 10 but is in love with Lego this past yr.
I like the fact you still do the Mc Donalds thing. That's neat.
Beautiful pics.

How cool! What a fun birthday party--love that is was low-key and creative.

The cake looks good! I would have dropped the whole idea once it started crumbling LOL

I've been planning the order of the boys' presents because they stop to play too. Cars and trucks always have to be the last thing opened because I can't get them to care about the rest of the gifts! LOL
