The Big 3!

Well my baby Ethan is no longer a baby. Ethan turned 3 on Aug. 16th. I can't believe it has been that long. Man where has the time gone. Ethan wanted a "kachow" cake which is what he calls Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars. So luckily my friend Kat had the cake pan already so I didn't have to buy it. (thanks again) I had the vision of making the lightning mcqueen cake look like it was driving down a road, since there were going to be about 18 people there I wanted to make sure I had enough cake. However, my brain was not functioning right and I could not figure out how to make the cake look like what I was invisioning. Sooooooooo I enlisted the help of our creative friend Paul Henderson. He helped me cut the cake to make it look like the pics below while still using as much cake as possible. (I know Paul you dont think you helped that much but you did). Same goes for Adam, he helped me move the cake and flip the cake and keep my sanity while doing it. A BIG THANKS TO THE BOTH OF YOU!! I REALLY APPRECIATED IT AND THE CAKE TURNED OUT PRETTY AWESOME IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF.

Thank for all the presents. Ethan is definately very loved.

DISCLAIMER: I promise Ili'Kea was not hurt in any way. :) She was laughing in the beginning but by the time we got the camera this is what was left. (such a little firecracker)

Love the cake! How cute and happy belated bday to Ethan!! Can't wait to see all of you in October.

I'm counting down to October because as I looked over these photos I realized that my dad is wearing his "uniform" and he's worn that same uniform (white shirt & tie) for nearly 40 years!! I hope he can actually retire once conference is over!

I just have to let you know that we were talking with Christopher about his 3rd birthday and just guess what kind of cake he wanted... Lightning McQueen. I think it's so funny that the last 2 Birthdays our kids have had the same cake. I guess our boys are just two peas in a pod.
