We had a small friend's party for Isaac this year, which sadly took place two weeks after his actual birthday, but hey, who's counting. I took Isaac to the local carniceria to pick out a pinata. He chose the Mickey Mouse one, so we went with that theme for his party. I was glad, and couldn't help but wonder how many more years he would think a Mickey party was cool.
This pinata was completely indestrucible. After each kid took two turns, I took the stick and whaled on it for all I was worth (If my brother Jake had been there, he would have been shouting "No wild swings, Hilli!" as he did at Christmas every year when we were kids.) But alas, even I was no match for this pinata. I finally had to just tear it open at the seams, and even that took considerable effort.
The kids also got to decorate Mickey Mouse sugar cookies. Don't they look so cute with their little Mickey ears?
Then it was time for cake and ice cream. I made the cake the night before, and although it was very simple, I thought it turned out pretty cute. I have no idea what Isaac wished for, since he doesn't vocalize his wishes like Sareny does.
I think it is safe to say that Isaac had a great birthday!
