We woke party morning with all 5 of us in our bed. The long awaited big boy present had been hidden away a week before hand. Bears face lit up as soon as he saw the Ben 10 logo underneath the gift wrapping.
It was done!!
No more handmade Omnitrix for Bear. He has upgraded to the mass produced, made in China version which breaks my heart but when you tell your 3 year old you can have a Ben 10 watch when you turn 4 you must stay true to your word. He has already racked up hours of fun and self amusement as well as transforming into aliens I have never heard of.
Bubble has official claimed his discarded one which makes my heart feel a little better.
Last minute party preparations included painting the pinata. We just ran out of time.
I swear the sun set 3 hours earlier the day before.
Left over Ben 10 transfers from the Ben 10 Bunting were turned into hair pieces and brooches for the girls to wear with their green shirts.
The Omnitrix Cake!!
Carlos and I both made it with lots of love and attention. It's the first proper cake we have made together and we were so happy when Bear saw it and actually knew what it was.
Best of all it was morish!!
I told him we made it especially for him and he even said "Awww... Thanks Mum and Dad!"
He is such a pleasure to make the extra effort for.
One of our friends bought his Heat Blast costume and Bear was extremely excited to get a turn!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAR!!
It's hard to believe that this was Bear 4 years ago.
This is THE ONLY PHOTO taken just minutes after carlos delivered Bear in our bath room unassisted. Bear was in such a hurry to be born that he didn't even wait for the ambo's to arrive.
It's a pretty crazy story. Carlos and I love telling it together as we remember details from each others side of the story. Maybe one day I will share it here...
Never underestermate your natural instinct Ladies and Gentlemen.
