It's party time!

Little Elvis will be a big 4-year-old on Friday! I'm bringing cupcakes to his pre-school class that morning, and his big birthday party will be on Saturday.

It will be THE party of the new decade. If you aren't invited, you might as well just crawl into a hole and hope for better luck next year.

Ok, I'm being a little sarcastic. Just a little though.

This year Little Elvis picked four friends to invite -- 2 girls and 2 boys. One of the girls was his sweetheart last year. They aren't in the same class this year, but he wanted to invite her. Her mother said she was beyond thrilled and still talks about him.

"Mekka lekka hi, mekka hiney ho..."

The "theme" for the party has 4 parts.

4 years old, 4 friends, 4 parts... there's a pattern here.

Here's he's practicing for his party by throwing a pillow party on our bed.

1. Toy Story - The invitations had a picture of Buzz Lightyear on them. We wrote "to infinity and a birthday party" on them.

2. Costume - We also wrote, "Costumes are welcome" on the invitations. Little Elvis will be dressed as Buzz for his party, and we thought the others might like to dress up as well. (The mother of his sweetheart said they might try to dress her as Jessie!)

3. Robots - I found a robot cake mix on sale at the grocery store. Little Elvis is so excited about this cake. Oh, how I hope I can recreate the picture on the box. We've also put several robot songs on his playlist. (Intergalactic, Robot Parade, Somebody bring me a flower, I'm a robot.)

4. Superhero - When not being Buzz, Little Elvis still likes to tap into his alterego, "SuperDog." So, I made him a cape with SuperDog on it, and made some for his friends as well.

OMG- Meredith, I haven't been here in forever - numerous reasons why - but OMG, he's grown into such a handsome little boy! Can you believe it's been 4 years? I remember reading the update that said you were going to the hospital. I remember sitting there waiting to hear that you were ok, that he was ok.

Happy Birthday Little Elvis! Have a great time at your big birthday!

Sounds like it will be fun! The capes are a great idea.
