Lucas recently celebrated his fourth birthday. Because of his limitations with crowds, we had a very small party at our home. Not to worry though, he had PLENTY of fun! He got a bit spoiled this year from his Aunts and Uncles. I am almost embarrassed to mention that he got a train table, a bike, and a basketball hoop for his birthday. Yikes! Given everything he has been through this year, I think that spoiling him on his birthday can’t be too bad of a thing!
He asked for a train themed party. My Uncle got a beautiful vintage train candle holder for him that held 4 candles, so this became the centerpiece of the party. An organization called Icing Smiles (http://www.facebook.com/#!/icingsmiles?fref=ts) provided Lucas with a beautiful “fun cake” for his birthday. I am OBSESSED with cakes; I LOVE them… so this was probably even more exciting to me. There is a beautiful and interesting story here actually. The baker who originally agreed to make Lucas’ cake became ill just a day before she was set to bake his cake. She was SOOOO sweet, and called to tell me her predicament. We agreed that it would be in Lucas’ best interest for her not to bake his cake and just get well herself. When Icing Smiles, the organization found out, they tried quickly to find another baker. I told them multiple times that it was not necessary, but they were so wonderful and really wanted to provide Lucas with a cake.
Shea Rosario of JLS Custom Cakes committed to making Lucas’ cake. She designed, baked, and delivered the cake in less than 24 hours! It was the MOST beautiful cake I have ever seen. The attention to detail was AMAZING! If you are in Jacksonville, FL and ever need a cake, you should look her up. (http://www.facebook.com/#!/JlsCustomCakes?fref=ts).
