I've seen that cake before, but still don't have a reason to make it. You must take pictures!

Scooter does OK with parties, though we've started to pare down the guest list. I generally prefer the family parties since they require less vigilance.

Alas, as I was assembling the materials for the cake L. informed me that he DOESN'T want the cake because it would be too "gross" and he wouldn't eat any!

A cat theme sounds fun, at least L will participate in one super-fun part about parties - the themes! I think it's great that you let him choose. If he had ever regretted his choice, he surely would've let you know about it. He's happy with family and that's great.

L. always gets to pick the theme--both kids do. L. wouldn't let us have it any other way! He loves designing and planning the theme, he just never wants to invite anyone to see it!
