When KJ found out it was going to be my birthday, he was over-the-top excited. The kid LOVES birthday parties, has been planning his May27th birthday since approximately May28th of last year, and loves celebrating with his friends. When Ricky asked KJ what he thought we should do for "Mommy's Birthday" he had big plans...Batman plans. Batman cake, Batman coloring pages, you know...a Batman theme. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't that he wanted Batman because he was trying to "steal" the party. It was just that in his sweet little four-year-old brain a Batman party was the very best thing he could think to give me. I loved it. So thats exactly how we celebrated.
Step One- Batman pictures for presents.
The kids loved picking out pictures online to print and then coloring them. And I loved how much they enjoyed it!
Next the real fun began. Can you believe how excited these two were about baking a cake?
We learned a few things along the way. I definitely helped A LOT, but let the boys help measure and add ingredients...
Well, that, and the icing and a Batman logo, of course.
