Nickel for Nathan

Apparently, it takes a birthday to get me to post anything new here (plans to fix that are in the works), but I couldn't let Nathan's 5th birthday slide by without posting about my fabulous boy. He's been dreaming of a "Builder Party" for a good 6 months, so I couldn't wuss out and take him to Safari Sam's or something easy like that. Nope. Mama delivers with a construction-themed cake:

(Love Nicole in the background of this one)

..... foam hard hats found at Michael's......

.... boxes for building towers (later to be demolished by boys wearing devilish grins) ....

.... plenty of diggers and dumpers and rocks....

.... and the piece de resistance, a "dig pit" of shredded paper loaded with candy and prizes. Whoa, baby, was our garage floor a mess!


We had a beautiful day with friends, sunshine, chocolate cake, and fun for all. Nathan is a joy to have in our home, and we're excited to see what year five brings for him!
