Birthday Extravaganza

Since J and H's birthdays are only one day apart it always makes for a very busy couple of days. Add in Passover just two days later and it was absolutely chaotic! I think they both had great birthdays though. I didn't do very well with taking pictures because of the chaos.

J had his birthday off so while the older two kids and I went to co-op he kept H for some special "Birthday Buddy" time. They then met us for lunch and then we headed to the outlet mall for some shopping. We got home and 45 minutes later people showed up for a small party for J.
Here is the RX7 cake. I must say it turned out much better than last year. I guess having more than eight hours of notice that this was the desired cake helped a lot! After everyone left I wanted to crash.......but there was another cake to decorate and a play kitchen to assemble. I started on the cake while J started on the kitchen. I won by a long shot! That kitchen had a million pieces!!!

Thankfully the Elmo cake was just as easy. I think we finally got to bed at 1am.

The gift is all set......finally.

Even though I was tired, the two year old excitement made it all worth it.

Brother even wrote a special birthday song. It was about three lines and he used her name about ten times. It's the thought that counted. It was a fun and relaxing day. Now I know why I didn't take a ton of pictures. Just thinking back to this weekend makes me need a nap!!!


  1. I must say, those are great cakes. Sorry I was under the weather and couldn't taste that hot rod, LOL!

  2. Awesome job on the cakes!! you are becoming quite proficient in cake decorating, they look professional. I'm sure the stain- mouthed celebrators loved every vibrant bite of them.
    I did a black and red race car for Noah's 5th b-day, and didn't even think about that red and black food coloring and what it would do to their teeth, tongues, etc. But it sure was fun!
