Today we celebrated Austin's birthday. I can't believe he's four already! Typical Austin, he's been saying he wants a "Thomas" party for the last few months. We had Thomas the Train hats, decorations and I even made a Thomas cake.
I should explain that I've made a tradition of making really special birthday cakes. I'm not artistic or crafty in the least, but somehow I always manage to pull it off. It was really hot this weekend, so the icing kept melting, but Austin didn't seem to care - as long as it was Thomas, he was happy. When he first saw it, he said "WOW! But....."
I waited for the worst. He was disappointed. Surely he'd noticed that Thomas' smiling face had melted off, and all the lines were drippy.
".....But Thomas doesn't have a 4...he's number one!" Overcome with relief, I showed him that Thomas did indeed have a 1 on this side, and explained that the car he pulled said "YAY Austin is 4!" He grinned, complimented the cake again and ran to play with this trains. He had a great day :)
