He's 4

Ezra turned four this weekend. I should seemed suprised at his age~ in awe of how fast time flys (and it does), but he is an old soul. He has always seemed much older than his age so I guess it seems natural that he is indeed a year older.
All of the birthday festivities~ the big morning breakfast, the afternoon bowling with friends, the cake, the gifts, and the time with friends was all put on hold when he woke up on his birthday morning with the flu. Poor Ezra. He is never ever sick. ever. But on this morning he indeed was so ill.
The party was cancelled but the day was still fun. A Charlie and Lola marathon followed up by family Wii bowling seemed to make up for the postponement of the birthday party.

He specifically asked (for months) for a vanilla cake with blueberry frosting and a blueberry happy face on top. The blueberry frosting was completely purple so I added a small drop of blue coloring which seemed to give it just the hue of blue it needed.

He has yet to actually eatthe cake because of his sick belly, but I sliced it, wrapped it, and stuck the slices in the freezer for a later date.


  1. Ohhh, that's a bummer, I hope that he's feeling better. Thanks for your note on FB. Thinking about Ezra's B-Day party last year makes me miss you guys too. That feels like forever ago, I can't believe it was only a year ago.

  2. Oh, what a bummer deal. I'm sorry Ezra. But I hope your birthday year of being four is super amazing to make up for the sick stomach.

  3. Happy Birthday Ezra! It was our Mila's 4th birthday this past week. Such excitement and Daddy made it home just in time for the party. I hope he's feeling better now.

  4. happy celebrating. hope he feels more like a four year old. soon.

    ps. love the cake. hope you will share the details on how you created the frosting.

  5. Happy birthday Ezra!!!! The blueberry-cake looks fantastic, I hope you had a wonderful celebration.

  6. Thanks everyone for the Ezra well-wishes. He seems to be on the mend.

    Kristi- For the icing I simmered down some blueberries, pureed them and added them to the buttercream frosting. It took a bit more powdered sugar to make it the right consistancy, so I am not really sure it was healthier adding them in or not :)
