dieter's birthday--part 2

I can't resist sharing more pictures from Dieter's "actual" birthday, which was on Sunday. In the morning I made a little birthday breakfast for him--waffles, like last year. He also blew out the candles on the birthday ring and we sang "happy birthday" to him once again while he wore his crown.

He got a birthday morning present. I wrapped it with brown packing paper and torn out photos from the Anthropologie catalog.



In the afternoon there were leftover cupcakes after lunch . . .
skating lessons with Faith (with his *new* birthday roller skates, which he had received the night before . . .
. . . and a trip to daddy's classroom to check out the physics toys his students had made. This giant elephant was pretty amazing!

Happy birthday little Dieter! You are bright and curious, a lover of books and activity. 5 is looking like a great year.

I'd never heard of a birthday candle ring before. What a great idea! Where did you get it?

It's from Magic Cabin! You can find a different one at Nova Naturals Toys too.
