Fourth Birthday Party 2002
The table is all set for our little birthday boy's
fourth birthday party dinner out on the deck during a lull in the rain. Menu
consists of lemonaid, pepperoni pizza and yellow cake with vanilla/raspberry
ice cream. He picked the menu. He even picked the plates we are eating
out of: he gets the Rugrats plate, Dad gets the Star Wars plate, and
Mom gets the Planter's Peanut plate. He likes PowerPuff Girls so he brought
out his PowerPuff Girls cup to drink out of.
He wanted us to get party hats. They
are still on the table (above)--soon to be on everyone's head! I told
him he could pick out one toy at the store himself on his birthday and he
picked, Jimmy Neutron. Hmmm. We don't even get that show. He says "Jimmy Neutron
is super hero". He is REALLY into superheroes.
Here (below) is the birthday boy standing by the cake and present table.
He picked Spongebob Squarepants for me to make his cake of. To keep
to a theme, as if that is possible, Spongebob wrapping paper was used. He
also likes Powerpuff Girls so he got some Powerpuff Girls wrapping paper covered
presents too. He picked out his balloon which he is showing off, Powerpuff
Girls, of course! They are "super heroes!"
He loves his toy kitchen which is in the background, along with his toy
house which we got a couple of weeks ago. You can tell he likes his kitchen
by what he asked for for presents. What did he get for presents? What
he asked for: toy dishes and toy food. He also got a stuffed toy cat that
walks, a squirt gun, and some books (Captain Underpants and Buzz Lightyear).
The party moved inside due to rain.
It started raining hard so we had to move inside to finish the party.
What an expression. Looks like
he is thinking "Let me check Dad, are you doing it right? Yep get that

Their cake instructions are
. I didn't have all the items they suggested. Our Spongebob is made with
only frosting for decoration. The sleeves, pants legs and shoes are made
with twinkies cut in half. The legs and arms are Keebler frosted wafers.
Blowing out the candles.
He can do it all by himself this year!
