I had visions of birthday-cake-sugar-high children running around on a farm on party day. But we moved the party from the farm/pumpkin patch to our house due to the unseasonably cold weather. I'm so glad we did- during Maddie's party it started to snow!
I suggested many "girly" options for a cake but Maddie insisted that she wanted a Thomas the Train cake. (But she did let me make it pink and purple.)
A lot of the kids couldn't make it due to illness etc, but we still had fun! We made Mr. Pumpkin Heads!
And sang happy birthday.
Here's Maddie trying her best to blow out her candles from two feet away. I guess I was nervous about putting the cake too close to her since last year she tried to stick her finger in the flame.
