We invited cousins and aunts and uncles and Grandma and godparents Kate and Joel to help us celebrate Michael's birthday with loaded potatoes and cupcakes.
Given how late it was and that he was under the weather, he was extremely well behaved.
He was very interested in his present (and the box, of course). I think his siblings might have been even MORE excited by the present though. I was surprised by how excited Elizabeth was, although given her propensity for home gymnastics perhaps I shouldn't have been.
Michael wasn't too sure about the candle in the cake; in fact he was a little inclined to burst into tears when the lights went out but the novelty of getting to smooosh the chocolate cupcake was very diverting.
