Masaru's Third Birthday























Well I couldn't decide what pictures to post so obviously I posted a lot of them. Masaru was really excited and when he woke up we let him open one present before church. It was the Tiger umbrella. He loved it as his cousins have a lady bug one and it's a huge fight everytime. Then Dru and I decided to get ready for church and when we came out saw that Masaru had opened his other presents, a pig light and a rash guard for swimming!! Well we couldn't tell him off, it was his birthday. So we all just laughed and took pictures of it. He loved the pig torch because his cousins have ones in Utah that he always wants to use. So now he has his own!! After church we had the party and everyone came over for it. He got a spiderman car and tracksuit from Delwyn and Anita, Huge massive silver car from Sarah and Chad (ah by the way thanks for that guys cause now we have to figure out how to take it home), 3 DVD's, Thomas the Tank Engine singlet and shorts and chocolate from Grandma (NZ), $20 from Grandma (USA), PJ's that you can draw on and everytime they go in the wash come out clean again and you can draw on them again, from Leslie and Ryan, $20 from Auntie Maree and some more tools from mum and dad. Dru tried to make him a tool belt but mum's sewing machine broke and so he only got as far as to make the holster part for the drill. So that can be finished some other time. I think it'll be awesome. And he got a Thomas the Tank Engine cake from mum and dad. Man I"m telling you that cake was the horror!! We started it and it looked horrible and we thought it wasn't going to turn out at all. I didn't put the beginning pic's on here for you to see. If I did you'd notice how awful it looked. But with some different coloured icing and some handy dandy work I think we pulled it off alright. It was MASSIVE!!! Like about a foot and a half long. I was amazing. Everyone was laughing at it because of it's size including me and Dru. All fun though and everyone got as much cake as they wanted and still had enough to take home for the next days lunch!!
All and all it was a good time and Masaru was very spoiled. We're extremely grateful for everyone's presents and kindness towards Masaru.
With the money we got from Grandma (USA) and Auntie Maree we're putting it towards a scooter and a bike. Masaru loves riding around on scooters and we feel he's ready to learn how to ride a bike with no trainer wheels. Wonderful day and great birthday. I can't believe my little man is 3 already. I remember giving birth to him and him being so little. Time really does fly when you're having fun doesn't it?!

Looks like he had a great day! I'll be impressed if he is ready for a bike w/o trainers. I've not met a kid yet who mastered a bike before age 4...go Masaru! I didn't know those jammies came clean in the wash, if they do then it's a new adventure every time, unless the markers are permanent I suppose. Hope he enjoys all his new things!

I love the..."I was amazing". Sure sure, you meant 'it'(the cake)...still very funny. He opened all his pressie's without you eh? that's funny too. Oh, and by the way, for all us American readers the 'pig torch' is called a 'flashlight'. I had to study the photos to figure that out, I was looking for some kind of a blow torch that you roast pigs with...

You are brave to even try to make that cake. way to go!! It looks like he had fun. Time definitely goes by way too fast! Happy Birthday Masaru!

I love all the pictures. I also love that he opened the presents without you. Sounds like something I would have done as a child. Sorry my card was late. I just can't remember it's his birthday till I flip the calendar to March and then it's too late to mail anything and get it on time. Oh well, this way he gets to celebrate a little longer...
How on earth are you going to get home a bike and scooter?

What a fun day! I think the cake looks great. I'm going to attempt a Mickey MOuse one for Kyle's birthday in a couple weeks. I'm a little nervous. I hope he had a great birthday!

Looks like a fun birthday for all of you...Masaru and you parents who did all the planning. Even though the cake was a "struggle", it will be one you never forget! Great to see that Dru was willing to help you figure it out!

Also, I really enjoyed reading through your list of loved things! Great list. Seeing what others count as blessings always make me step back and think "oh yeah, I have that blessing too..." or "I love that too and forgot about that one." It always makes me happier when reminded of what I am blessed with! Thanks for those reminders.

Masaru is 3? Holy cow time flies. I loved the pictures and particularly admire your culinary skills with the "Thomas" cake, nice! I love that little ones are crazy about Thomas, I always thought it was a boy thing until Adessa went nuts over it. Looks like y'all had a great time. Happy Birthday Masaru.
