3 Years Young!!

Ethan has been anticipating this day for months. So, when he woke up this morning to my birthday greeting, I dont think he could quite believe it was finally here. "It's my birthday? NOW?" And the first thing he wanted to see was his cake! I think it was all the birthday rituals of candles, cake and balloons that he was craving most. Presents were just a by-product in his mind. But then, he was pretty happy with his presents too.
I have to show off the cake since it took me forever to make...A little sad looking but Ethan loved it. Disasters all along the way with that thing.



Ethan documents the journey of Thomas the Tank Engine:



So hard to believe that he's already 3!

Many happy returns of the day, Ethan! :-) Chestnut Hill misses you. Appropriately enough, we were talking about you today. Strangely enough, the conversation was about whether or not heath ledger looks like you in one of his movies. (it's one of his clean shaven ones)

Keith said...

Thanks Ronda. That's weird, since we have call waiting, there shouldn't be a busy signal. Must be something wrong with the line.

Claire said...

Yes, I tried calling too...to apologize that our present is going to be late...only to get the same busy signal...Oh well.We love you, Ethan! Happy Birthday!

( I love the pictures! I can't believe that cake!)

gretchen said...

Hmm, I should try that same line: Uh, I tried to call but it was busy... However, that wouldn't be true : ) But we did think of you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ETHAN!!!

Love from
Shawn and Gretchen AND Michael and Gabriel and Ian

janelle said...

Umm..err...busy signal...yeah, I tried too...no, not really but the card really IS in the mail. I was thinking it was today, shame right on me. What has happened to my steel trap memory?! Happy Birthday, Ethan! Way cool cake!!!

PJ said...

What a handsome young man you have there, Happy Birthday Ethan

KJ said...

I'm SO impressed with your cake and wish a happy late birthday to such a wonderful little guy!!

Loreo said...

What a cool cake, Liane! Happy birthday, Ethan! William's 3rd is only 3 months away. Has Ethan mastered potty training? Sounds like he talks pretty well!

Happy Belated Birthday Ethan!!

I am taking a moment to check your blog! I feel TERRIBLE to say that i forgot ALL about Ethan's birthday until Mama mentioned it when we were there
(on his b'day) and she tried to call so we could all sing,
but alas....yes...a busy signal. I shall mend my ways
when we return home and recollect my brain....
meanwhile...lots of love to u all. We head back Tuesday.

WHAT?! It was Ethan's birthday just two days after he was here? Ugh. I wish I would have known we would have done something special for him...possibly I could have persuaded Janelle to dress up in the Spiderman costume again. She does an excellent impersonation you know. Great cake! You are the coolest mom, Liane Maxwell! Happy Birthday Ethan!!
