Each year, my son's birthday falls on or near the Presidents' Day weekend. It's nice to have the extra time to prepare for and recover from the celebration.
This year, I made a simple garland of flags from some Thomas fabric. I cut multiple layers at once with my pinking shears, so the edges had an instantly a weathered look.
His cake was chocolate with buttercream frosting. (I love recipezaar!) I wanted to make a peanut butter frosting, but bowed to the current salmonella concern.
Two two hour parties occupied our Sunday. Tomorrow, we'll play with the new toys and games, and take the new training wheels out for a spin.
