Antonio turned 1 the other day. Since, daddy is away for work I hadn’t planned on celebrating; since we are going to have a birthday party complete with cake in a couple of weeks when Daddy is back in town and his Godparents are here visiting. However, when Paul figured out I had no plans to celebrate his birthday he was aghast. He quickly informed me that even though we were going to have a party later we had to do something special for his birthday. So, to the store we went. Paul and Thomas picked out all of the stuff for our little party.
Our dinner was composed of dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets, French fries and cucumber slices. For dessert the boys helped me make rainbow candy cookies. Then we add chocolate cookie icing to it so we could put a candle of the cookie. They planned everything down to the star shaped candles we purchased. For decorations they chose a Happy Birthday foil balloon to tape to the back of Antonio’s chair. They also each had a balloon taped to their chair.
Also, while we were at the thrift store earlier in the day they picked out a jumbo dump truck for him. He has been enjoying pushing it around immensely. Our gift to him; the Fisher Price Cruise and Groove Ballapalooza has been a huge hit with all the boys. Paul and Thomas enjoy playing with it to make Antonio laugh.
