it's hard to believe it's that time of year again.... my talkative, sweet, hilarious, sword-fighting, super-hero-loving son is having a birthday, a whole hand birthday... my boy is FIVE!
because of our impeding move, we decided to throw him an early party. it's not yet his big day (that'll be in a brand new state!), but the party did double duty on a last-chance get-together for birthday and farewell.
i've sort of set a precedent on cake pop party favors... the batmen, the cowboys, even robots and buddy the dinosaur pops for some little friends. even though some say cake pops are "so last year", i like them, darnit, and wanted to continue the tradition. however time is clearly not on my side these days, so i decided to make things a little easier on myself. cake pops don't have to be too over-the-top on the difficulty scale to be fun. then i found these adorable super hero bottlecap zipper pulls on etsy and i couldn't resist.
so happy early birthday, big brother. thanks for making us all smile every day.
