So Pierce turned 5 on Monday. We don't do big parties, but we do make birthdays special. The festivities began with cupcakes at school! My mom, the twins, and I showed up early to eat lunch with Pierce and his class. I let Pierce buy his lunch and he was thrilled (even though he didn't eat much). Then we had the pumpkin spider ring cupcakes I made -
On Saturday, we invited family over. We smoked a couple of our chickens and had a feast, followed by Bob the Builder cake. Pierce wanted Diego and Baby Jaguar cake, but he's had every version of Diego cake out there, so we went with something different. Sadly, after I got the bill for this cake it looks like I'll now be making our birthday cakes in future years. I just can't see shelling out $25 for a cake again - even if it was very tasty (plus, they spelled Pierce's name wrong!).
A stomach bug has been going around Pierce's class at school, so we decided to let him blow out the candle on his individual piece of cake, just in case we were incubating something.
Then Pierce had a few presents to open. Many thanks to Cat Cat and Pop Pop, Uncle John, and Pam and George who all had gifts for Pierce.
