We just had a birthday party for Dominic, and I am now in the midst of preparing for another birthday party, this time for Gabriel, which will be on the 20th, in 2 1/2 weeks.
Gabriel and I were putting some things into the surprise bags yesterday, and we noticed that the birthday candles I had bought for him and for Nicolas (Yep, yet another birthday coming up in December) were missing out of the bag. We found the number 2 candle for Nicky's birthday, but didn't find the number 5 candle for Gabriel's birthday.
Gabriel: "Mom, you have to find my candle. If we don't find my candle, I won't be 5, I'll just have to stay 4 and a 1/2."
