We got a red velvet cake for us to enjoy and I treated Mario to 1-0 candles since you're only ten once! This year I got Mario his own mint plant for his gift. The toys I got him for Christmas are relatively untouched so I decided to go the food-is-the-way-to-his-heart route.
I made Mario a rabbit-safe cake with all of his favorite things. I garnished his cake with mint from his mint gift.
|We sang "Happy birthday" twice. Once for each cake :)|

Christmas and his birthday probably rank as Mario's least favorite days of the year (and my favorite!) because I insist on picking him up and forcing him to take hundreds of photographs. Here is an example of his obvious joy at being cradled like a baby:
|"Find your happy place!"|
Happy birthday, Mario!
