Happy birthday Coachpa!

My dad's birthday was several days ago, but I've been really bad about downloading pictures. (I don't remember being this lazy with my other pregnancies...)

Poor Coachpa ended up with a "celebration" fit for Little Elvis. That's because Little Elvis gave us lots of input, and my dad said he was fine with all of Little Elvis' ideas.

First, we made him an octopus cake. Little Elvis was dead set on this. He understood that we didn't live by the sea, and couldn't get a real octopus, and he seemed pleased with my 8-legged Tootsie Roll concoction. Little Elvis wasn't as happy with the "healthy" carrot cake I made, though. (I don't think Coachpa liked it very much, either.)

We also took Coachpa out to eat for his birthday. He said he was fine with Chick-Fil-A, so that's where we went. His present? A fire extinguisher. Little Elvis discovered that they didn't have one last month and insisted that we get Coachpa a fire extinguisher for his birthday.

So, this was more of a celebration fit for Little Elvis, but Coachpa said it was great. I think it was very sweet of him to be ok with a 4-year-old planning his party.

I love it... everything: the octopus cake, the gift, the 4 year old party planner - so cute! I would let him plan my birthday, too!

Quite creative and imaginative. Looks like he is benefiting from yours and Bob's example.
