He had a Star Wars party with 5 of his friends and despite having to move the party inside (thanks to cold, wind & heavy rain), it was so much fun. I had attempted an r2-d2 cake (3-d of course), but after frosting the entire thing, the head cracked. I even tried holding it together with uncooked spaghetti noodles. No go. So after consulting with Ryan, into the trash it went and out came the chocolate cupcakes. Of course, I'm not to be outdone by a cake so I plan on making another one this week just to prove to myself I can do it. Silly me, I know.
Finley also had a small dinner party with just my family. The best part was when he opened the small box of Clone Wars legos saying, "Lego droides! Ooooooh, it's just want I wanted, Thank you! I have been dreaming about these. Now I can complete my collection!" What 4 year old talks like this? I totally loved it. I wish I had been filming on the Flip mino instead of just taking still camera shots. It was priceless.
