Mr. Three has taken to a mild obsession with Star Wars along with his older brothers. On any given day, he is Yoda, or Luke Skywalker, or Darth Vader, or a Storm Trooper, or Chewbacca... He is often found gripping his light saber pen as we drive around town running errands. His Star Wars figures are left in various places around the house as evidence that he has been occupying that particular space. Darth Vader, Luke, and an occasional Batman are regulars at the breakfast table.
We have seen this Darth Vader video so many times, I have lost count. So it just made sense to feed the Star Wars fascination for his birthday. Right?
When asked what he wanted for his birthday dinner, he told me he wanted cake pops. Nice try Mr. Three, but not going to happen! On second thought, he decided on pizza and a chocolate cake with white frosting and chocolate sprinkles. So off to Grandpa's and Grammy's house for pizza on the grill and a chocolate Oreo-studded cake we went.
He received lots of Star Wars gifts and he was a very, very happy little boy! Love the pizza sauce smudges on those cheeks.
Look! The Millenium Falcon, Mommy! Two Han Solos, several droids, a few bad guys and a speeder bike or two later, and we enjoyed a piece of cake (after peeling all the boys off of the loot).
With all of the excitement and attention on Mr. One and Mr. Four during the weekend, I think Mr. Three just enjoyed being the center of attention for his special day. We were all glad to give him a little extra love, too. How can anyone resist those big eyes and adorable chubby cheeks?! I love this sweet boy!
