Sing it one more time, happy boy!!

A package arrived this week that made me say "better late than never..." 
 It contained these cute cupcake papers and sprinkles and these...
cupcake toppers!!  I saw them on another blog and ordered some for Cooper's birthday.  I posted about his party last week because that was when his party was however, his birthday is tomorrow. Tim & Joni came to visit yesterday, so I made these for one last hurrah.

He is a super hero aficionado so I knew he'd probably like them, still couldn't wait to see his reaction.
He's super excited about whatever is going on.  He's really so much fun to have around!  He kept throwing his head back and saying "it's MY birthday tomorrow....sing it to me one more time!" lol  And we'd all sing one more round of "Happy Birthday".  Oh to be 4 again!

After dinner, we were all tired but enjoyed watching the kids, when it started to rain...hard!




The creek running fast...
We went down to the porch and watched the creek and made popcorn....like watching a movie and almost as entertaining.

Then the story telling started...first Grandpa Larry told a scary tale, then Cooper told a taller one!  That boy has it DOWN!!

Rain brings a good night's sleep...Cooper woke ready to make blueberry pancakes and start the day.  Happy (second time around...) birthday little guy!!

Speaking of which, it's friend, Emily's birthday this weekend too!  Bryden had a good time playing with her this week.

Didn't get a good face shot because they were having too much fun, but "Happy Birthday Emily" too!!!!

What Super Dooper cupcakes for the birthday boy. I love the story telling picture with the finger pointing to great grandpa. It must have been a tall one... That little video clip is just adorable. It will be great to watch this in a few years from now. Have a great weekend Donna. Hugs. JB

Looks like a fun day and it's too bad this morning's work had to spoil it! Cooper is getting so big, I forgot that he and Cameron are the same age. Cam will be 4 in Aug. and he can't wait! Those cupcakes look really cute and I'm glad you did get to use them.

Your family gatherings with the sweet young grandchildren are heart warming, Donna. It causes me to recall my own days with mine, being that all but one of them are teenagers or older now. Cute Bryden especially has an uncanny likeness to my grandson Andrew at that age, he's 15 now. Your yard is beautiful!
