Today we celebrated Brett’s 9th birthday a few days early. He turns 9 on Wednesday. It was a big weekend with lots of prep but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Grandma R decorated the cake for me so that was extremely helpful! We did have some technical difficulties with the filling on the top layer & sliding…well that happens. Brett was absolutely thrilled and it tasted yummy! Yay for leftovers.
I love the colors and Mario theme. To be honest, I know *very little* about Mario Kart but Brett’s a big fan. A friend so helpfully suggested looking at Target for the racers & then I found the figurine set. Just what I needed!
Just for fun, I made marshmallow pops. The other jars contained chocolate and powered donuts and Mini Oreos. Sometime I’d like to do cake pops but I really didn’t have time for all that. As it is, I had to dismantle my day care, get ready for overnight guests, prepare meals, clean, etc.……………………..!
What a great weekend and birthday party for our little man. He’s an amazing kid and we love him so much. Can’t believe he’s almost 10 though!!
