The rest of Saturday was dedicated to getting ready for Caden's birthday party for Sunday. The majority of the time I spent on the cake. Of course I had to get the Buzz Lightyear Wilton cake pan. I knew it would take quite awhile to decorate it, but WOW it took a long time. It took me around 1 hour to mix all the different colors after I made the large batch of butter cream frosting. Then it took 3 1/2 hours to decorate the cake. Was it worth it? Yep. Here is the result:
Caden was pretty pleased, too. Here he is checking it out:
He had a great time at his party and was pretty well behaved. Here are some highlights from the party.
Look how carefully he reads his cards :)

The cousins enjoying some cake. No shirts to prevent dirty shirts :)
Lilli enjoys a cupcake after she wakes up. She slept through the ENTIRE party :)
Thank you to everyone who came to make his party so special.
Tomorrow is his actual birthday, so we plan to get him a little ice cream cake and let him open the gifts from us. It should be a good day. I'm sure I'll have more pics.
