Today is Kaden's actual birthday, but we are busy tonight with youth group and we aren't having his party until the 12th...so, we decided to throw Kado a mini birthday party last night.
I made some yummy pb & j cupcakes. Sweet Karter is a boy after my own heart and said we can't have a party without cookies...so of course I made some cookies!
Monkey cookies and cupcakes for my monkey!!
The cupcakes were a new recipe....peanut butter cupcakes filled with jelly, iced with pb frosting and a dollop of jelly on top. SO good!!
Karter wanted to make a banner for Kaden. He personalized with a drawing...a boat!
Of course, our celebrations always include the guest of honor eating off the "Special Day" plate!!
My boys (Kristoffer included) always want spaghetti for their birthday dinner.
Singing "Happy Birthday". Kaden sings "happy dirtday to me!"
The best attempt of the three of us together! Notice the birthday boy is the only one NOT wearing his party hat!!
In true Karter fashion, he licked all the icing off the cupcake but didn't eat any cake....and it took him nearly 20 minutes!
Then Kado got to open a few presents. This present is from Karter...a monkey book (that we have already owned for nearly 3 years), since we were having a monkey themed party. Karter is thoughtful!
