Happy Birthday Nicholas!!!!

Today we celebrated Nicholas' 5th birthday! Traditional style in our family is a low key, family type birthday. Nicholas requested Spiderman as a theme. With the help of one of my good friends JenC, whose work simply amazes me, I was able to create these invitations using my cricut and the cricut markers. Thank you so much Jen for the cut file! You can see more of her brilliant work here.


We headed off to church this morning before the party started. Fr. Neil had the parishioners sing Happy Birthday to Nicholas. That was really cute! Everyone also extended their hands for a special blessing just for him (and believe me, the kid needs all the blessings he can get!)
Usually I make a homemade cake into some sort of rough image to match the theme. I have been known to be quite clever putting together a shaped cake from scratch. But alas, this year, I opted for the icecream cake from DQ.
Um, mental note here: Leave off the blue icing...
He got lots of goodies and even picked out Red Lobster for dinner. All in all it was a great day and the weather was perfect! It is hard to believe that the youngest Gorden will be heading off to kindergarten in a mere 14 days...
