holy birthday, batman!

well, all the festivities for cade's fourth birthday are finally over.  all the presents are unwrapped, all the toy packaging frustratingly removed, and all the tiny toy accessories strewn about the house.  he had a wonderful week of celebrations, hopefully helping him to understand that he is deeply loved and thoroughly blessed. 

he wanted a robin-themed birthday, which i thought was cool because everyone always likes batman, and robin never gets front page coverage, you know.  sort of an underdog superhero, so to speak.  and yet cade has a soft spot for robin, so shannon made robin (and batman) cookies for his party at school:



this weekend we finished up the celebration with my parents, and he got a robin cake which shannon so artfully made:





one of his favorite presents was a set of over 250 lego figure pieces including about 30 figures.  cade loves "lego guys" and generally sleeps with a few in his hands.  he loves mixing and matching them, and so our house is littered with little legos comprised of storm trooper bodies with harry potter heads and scuba gear.  so this was a great toy for him to unwrap.  he is blessed beyond measure, and we, of course, are 100 times as blessed to be witnesses to his 1460 days or so.
