Cupcakes, Candles, and Angry Birds! Happy Birthday, Charlie!

4 years old.  I can't believe it, but it's true.
This sweet boy is cuddly, smart, loving, happy, mischievous, and full of personality. 
For his birthday, he wanted to celebrate Angry Bird style.  He plays the game as often as we will allow.   Is it sad that a 4 year old can play it much better than I can? 
Thanks to Pinterest, I planned the whole party in a day.
I asked him if he wanted a cake at his party.  Lucky for me, he requested cupcakes.  I baked them, threw on the icing, and added some sprinkles.  He went back and forth on the flavor, but settled on...
Chocolate...of course.  I ordered the toppers from Etsy.  Simple, cute, and cheap!
Skittles are his favorite.  He might have gotten that from me!
Skittles and suckers...perfect party favors.
I loved how easy it was to throw together. 
These birds are starting to grow on me, but the pig is my favorite.
He spent a lot of time building (and knocking down).  I love his chubby fingers.  Seriously.
Happy Birthday, Charlie Brown!!!  We love you!

I have been....

chasing my own tail. 
It seems as those I am running in circles these days!  Between my children, school, taking classes for my gifted endorsement, baseball, ballet, and everything else, I can't seem to find time the time to breathe.  However, spring break is only ONE week away.  Surely I will get caught up then, right?
Ha!
