Party #2

It still amazes me that my guy is 5 years old already!
We had lunch with Grandpa H, yesterday, because he had Fall Ball that evening. When we went to leave he gave Big T part of his gift. A scooter! He was so excited.
After lunch it was time for me to come home and make his cake. I am pretty happy with it. I wish I could have done more with it, but it still looks good.
Hubby and I had so much fun making Big T's gift. First he opened up a bag that had a belt with a frog for a sword, a helmet, and "boots".
Then he opened a bag with a new sword made by Papa.
And the last part to our gift....the shield. ("Just like Christian," Titus said.)
We had to wait to bust the castle pinata (I made it as well) until after Grandma B and our friends left. It was raining and didn't stop until later. But the children like it.
After bath time Big T wanted his knight outfit on again. The only thing I didn't make was the breastplate. I ran out of fabric. So for now, it is an old plastic shield with elastic attached.
He got too spoiled this birthday. His Grandpa and Grandma K gave him Leg0s (loved them), more knights, a horse, a science set, and a couple of other things. But he put his knight outfit on first thing this morning!
