If you know me at all then you know that I am HUGE birthday person. I believe that this is your SPECIAL day to celebrate your SPECIAL gift of life. Therefore, I have always tried to make Braden's birthday a celebration! This past summer I started brainstorming ideas for his 3rd birthday and it was a toss up between trains and buses. Braden loves both! Braden helped me finally settle on a school bus theme.
So the dilemma each year is not so much the theme as what are we going to do? Considering that it is a January birthday doesn't always make for the most terrific weather. And this year was NO exception. To go along with the school bus theme I had booked a tumblebus to come for Braden's birthday, but because we actually got snow and ice the Thursday before the tumblebus driver wasn't comfortable driving an hour to our house. So what did I do? I called Brad and cried!!!! And then I picked myself up and decided that we would make the best out of it anyways and it ended up being a great party!
Braden helped me make the treat bags earlier in the week and he was SO excited about all of his friends coming over, but his favorite part was the school bus cake! He absolutely could not take his eyes off his cake when we showed it to him Saturday morning!
There is absolutely no doubt that Braden has my birthday celebration genes! He certainly loves the attention, presents, fun, and CAKE!
Happy 3rd birthday Braden! We love you!
