well, it wasn’t made for staring at!

after everyone had arrived and we spent some time socializing, we got down to the birthday business of cake and ice cream!

but first we sang our happy birthday song, of course!

nothing could stop the demolition of this marshmallow monkey cake once the candles were blown out – it was almost too cute to cut up but somehow, i managed 🙂

did i mention how i had pink frosting all over my carpet?  no?  well, thanks to my mom, i don’t (anymore) – thanks, mom!!

after everyone had their fill of cake and ice cream, we moved on to the presents…


balloons, cake, presents and a four year old girl.

well, she did it – she actually turned 4 years old just like she said she would!

jasper woke me up the morning of her birthday telling me that she “was 4 years old now and 4 year old girls don’t ride tricycles anymore, mama, they ride bicycles!”

i think, at that point, if we hadn’t already gotten a bike for her?  we would have gone out and gotten one 🙂

but what we did that morning instead was get ready for the birthday party!

here is jasper patiently waiting for her friends to arrive!

it’s her “marshmallow monkey cake” as requested!!!  apparently, a marshmallow monkey is just a white monkey in jasper-speak 🙂

it looks yummy, doesn’t it?  (it was…)

uh, huh, she is getting a little antsy and looks a little too close to that cake for my comfort 🙂

but luckily, it wasn’t long before our friends starting pouring it with presents, smiles and plenty of “happy birthday, jasper!” greetings!
