Edvard's Birthday, Part 2

We have been celebrating Edvard's birthday for almost two weeks! We had a big party for him on Saturday. However, first we took him to the hairdresser. He hates having his hair cut, and screams the whole time, but he looks great afterwards!

I baked two Kong Oscars kake, and one kransekake (wreath cake). I had baked the kransekake in December and kept it in the freezer until now. I had a bit of problem putting it together, and the icing was a bit too thin, so it looked a bit funny, but the taste was wonderful and I learned a lot! I have also finally figured out how to get the yellow cream for Kong Oscars kake stiff.

Blowing the candles!

The next morning, Edvard surveyed his mountain of presents!

He got a nice book in the mail from tante Ell!

On Sunday we went to the Zoo with some Norwegian friends. Edvard got to ride on an elephant!

Edvard is very kind to his little sister! He has learned how to put the pacifier back in her mouth when she loses it.

Edvard has improved a lot at climbing!

We gave him a slide for our balcony on his birthday!

He loves the slide in the playground downstairs, too!
