Happy Birthday Carter!!

Carter had his fourth birthday a few weeks ago. Yes, that's right, I am just barely getting around to doing this. I actually tried blogging it last week, but for some reason my pictures wouldn't upload. We're good now.
Since Carter's birthday was right after we came back from Christmas, instead of planning a big party, we just sort of had an impromptu party at Chuck E Cheese. Carter was in heaven! We invited a few friends last minute who were in town and had ourselves a blast. I loved that it was just so easy. The only drawback to the party was that it was on a Saturday and there were a billion kids. There were probably like 10 birthday parties going on too. It was a tad crazy. Oh well.
The next day, Sunday the 10th, was Carter's actual birthday. We had Carter open his presents then, along with having his birthday cake. We invited the Smiths back over to help eat the cake, because there was no way we would've eaten that cake by ourselves. . . .. okay maybe we could've and would've, but we SHOULDN'T, so the Smiths took one for the team and came and helped us.
That cake was sooooo good. I did brownies on the bottom, then toasted marshmallows, then chocolate frosting, then ground up oreo's to make it look like dirt. To finish it off I buried gummy worms in it. Carter was impressed. Shoot, I was impressed. :) And like I said, it was GOOD.
Carter got action figures, clothes, a remote control car from my parents, v-tech games from Bo's mom, play-doh, and a light saber and cars from Milo Smith. Yes, Carter scored big time.
Happy Birthday Carter!!! I can't believe my baby is already 4. FOUR. Really? Where did the time go?? I love that crazy boy.

Looks like a lot of fun! I've sworn that I will avoid Chuck E Cheese at ALL costs! You're a brave woman. Hey, I never heard back from you after my last email. :-) Did you change your mind. ;-)
