Birthday in Pictures!

The Birthday Boy - anxiously awaiting present time! :)

Who isn't excited by a pile of presents?!

Patrick watched as Calvin unwrapped the gift he choose to give him - 2 monster trucks. He was happy that Calvin wanted to share. :)

This was his main gift...

He started to realize what it was...

He was thrilled! After weeks of air guitar and using books, arms, elbows etc. as guitars, he now has one to play. He loves music and has been enamored with guitars especially!

The face of a happy musician.

The cake coming his way....
Blowing out the 4 candles.

A delighted boy!

The Orange Racecar Cake! I was pretty happy with the way it turned out but the real test was whether Calvin liked it - he chose a chocolate cake and I filled it with strawberry filling. Yum!

Are your cake decorating skills for hire? That cake is awesome! What a thoughtful birthday gift.I would be willing to bet you will need two more guitars before it is all over- I know from experience :)

I think you should start baking cakes as a little side job... as if you don't have enough on your plate!
The pics are adorable! Jon-Jon got a guitar for his 4th birthday too! :)
