A Birthday Celebration

I cannot wait to tell you all about the amazing time I had this weekend at the Elevate Conference- but I am waiting to be able to "steal" some of the photographers shots.  It was an amazing weekend.

Today instead I will tell you about Ryder's birthday last week.

Last week my preemie baby turned 4!  I cannot believe how fast time is going.

We had a cake of course.

The cake was his request, a square cake with a letter-R race track.  In a lot of way it was one of the easiest cakes I have made.  The trickiest part was figuring out the R, but I plan on giving a tutorial on it next week.

The best part, the cake decorations were cleaned off afterwards and he had another present.

When we asked Ryder what he wanted for his birthday he wanted, a microphone, a panda bear and a train.

He was very happy to get all his presents.

Along with some shopping money, he got a very special BYU football outfit.

He fainted when he saw it, just watch the video to see the faint and more birthday fun.

  2. Wow - great job on the cake! I've always bought Lexie's because my cake decorating skills are, let's just say, not exactly stellar. :) Lucky boy getting all his birthday wishes!

    1. They do say cheetos the very last time, it is something she picked up in school when they sing for kids birthdays. Not sure why they do it at school

  9. Your birthday is an opportunity to reflect on how you are still alive to celebrate the day you were born, recall a significant thing that happened on that day, and celebrate, give thanks, and reflect on how you are still alive to celebrate the day you were born. Cheap Essay Writing Service UK
