Happy Birthday Kaden!

Five years ago today, my life was forever changed for the better:-) Today I am celebrating my son Kaden's 5th birthday.  He brings me so much joy everyday and we have so many awesome moments together. Today he is having two celebrations, one that I planned at his school and another one when he gets home. YAY!  And that means three sinfully delicious cakes.  We love Costco cakes! Those are the best! So I got him a Costco cake for his school party and since he is a Power Ranger Samurai fanatic, I got him a Power Ranger Samurai cake from the bakery to have for his home celebration. I also made him a delicious cake from scratch to have at home.  When I was a kid, my mother made all of our cakes. In fact, I don't recall very many bakery cakes growing up because my mother always made them.  

I have fond memories of those homemade cakes, so for that reason I also make my son's cakes. Even if I get a bakery cake, he can always count on a homemade cake from  mom lovingly baked in the kitchen. I don't think anything compares to whipping up that batter, walking into a house that smells like sugar and love:-) And then taking that first bite of moist fluffy cake and rich homemade buttercream frosting. Do you agree?  And now I have lots and lots of photos to share.  This is going to be a photo heavy post dedicated to my amazing son!

This was my son's first Halloween. Awwwwwwww

 Birthday number one!

Birthday Numnber two!

Birthday number three at Disneyland!

Birthday numnber four!

And now birthday Five! This is the sign in front of my son's school in honor of his birthday.

And here is Kaden flashing up five fingers! He is so excited!

And here is Kaden celebrating with a pizza party with his classmates

And here are treat bags I made for my son and all of his classmates at school

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Kaden, Happy Birthday to you!

Kaden even got a surprise visit from his Dad and a cute balloon bouquet:-)
And here are even more Balloons I got for Kaden's home celebration!

And my son's favorite character!


 And more presents!

 We are on the way to a restaurant for dinner and my angel is asleep smiling. Believe it or not, he is really asleep:-)

We are about to have a sumptious dinner!
Kaden and his Godmom:-)

Kaden was too full to enjoy his complimentary dessert. A big ol chocolate chip cookie warm from the over with a scoop of ice cream. Um. guess who had to eat it for him...LOL

 When we got home, Kaden was able to indulge in this delicious homemade rainbow cake nestled on a bed of colored sprinkles.

My son was absolutely thrilled with the cake I made for him:-)

Kaden had an amazing birthday! Thank you for letting me share it with you:-)

Aw, so many precious photos of your beloved son. He is so cute. I especially like the very first photo where you have him tied in a bow and the one where he is smiling as he sleeps. How cute are those?! So glad you and your son had a fantastic time celebrating his 5th birthday!

We had so much fun tonight! To see the joy on Kaden Kooler's face was priceless.
I learned something from Kaden tonight, I don't ever want to hear a knock-knock joke again! If I do I'm going to run away to a far far island away from society.
Just joking. I love my baby he's the one of the sweetest kids I know. If you meet him you'll instantly fall in love him.
I love you Kaden and will see you soon.
