Mason’s 4th Birthday – The Cakes

Mason’s 4th Birthday is going to be forever remembered as “The Year of the Cakes.”

We decided to have a separate “friend party” and a “family party” this year as I knew Mason would have a hard time playing with his friends and giving his relatives attention at the same time.

So on the 22nd, Mason celebrated his birthday with his friends with a “Jake the Neverland Pirates” themed party and cake.

Then on the 23rd, we had a small family party at our house and Mason had a construction site cake.

Mason’s actual birthday fell on Sunday the 16th, but I remembered last year that he was sad that they didn’t sing Happy Birthday to him at daycare and have a treat (I had dropped the ball thinking the daycare took care of this) so I sent him to school with monster truck cupcakes the Friday before his birthday. I unfortunately totally forgot to take pictures of them. #fail


Since his birthday party was a week after his actual birthday, we couldn’t just let the big day go by without any fanfare so we also had a tiny little cake at home as just the three of us.

We definitely need to figure out something different for next year since four separate birthday celebrations seemed absolutely insane, but at least we can say we’ve had our fill of cake!!?

How do you guys handle it when a kid’s birthday falls on a different day than their school celebration or birthday party day?

    Our kids get a cupcake in their actual day, and we save the cake for the party – we haven’t had separate family/friends parties yet, though…

    Dang lady, those are some fancy party cakes!

    Both of my kiddos have summer birthdays, so I will never have to deal with classroom party drama, muahahaha. We usually just have one party, and then some ice cream cake on the actual birthday. So far, not much of the family has been able to come for the parties, so that hasn’t been a problem either.
