Birthday pictures

I just realized I never did a second part to our birthday post.  Thanks to Pinterest, I found a lot of ideas and recipes for their party.

Close up of their banner
The background ideas came from my friend Brooke and cousin Hannah.  Justin helped with the cutting and pasting and the girls helped coloring in on the cow!  I still have this up in our dining room... not quite ready to take it down!
Cookies and Cupcakes
 I made the cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, oreo chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies and my mother in law made potato chip cookies (awesome!)  I also had a bowl of oreos.

Drink table
I thought everyone would drink milk...WRONG!  We had so much left over milk.  
I love how these turned out!!  The only problem... the black icing!!  I had NO idea what  a mess it would make!

Baby girl did this all by herself!  She LOVED the cake....even cried when we took it away!  We immediately went to the bathtub!  So glad we took off their shirts.

Max was a little hesitant at first, but once he had a good bite, he didn't stop!

Since they both got upset when we took the cake away, we cut off a big chunk and left them a little slice.  Loved them some sugar!  That was their first time having a sweet like that and haven't had one since!

They were spoiled by all our friends and family!  Our house now looks like one giant playroom with all the toys!

All of us had a great day and I was so happy how everything turned out!!


  1. GREAT PICS! The black icing is too funny, she made such a cute little mess.

  2. I totally want to steal your milk and cookies idea but I don't know how to use it! I love it when babies get all into the cake. Neither of my kids did :(
