The big Birthday Party!!!
Princess Eden's birthday is really soon
...so is cousin Micah....so is cousin Philip.
We were going to have a party for Eden before we left.
I always feel so guilty because we visit family
and celebrate MY kids,
but we never seem to be there for the other kid's days.
Sooooo.... my sis-in-laws and I put our heads together
(that could be dangerous!)
and we decided to have a
"if you're having a birthday this year" party.
I totally loved the idea.
Aunt Christine made each kid their very own white cake,
then we filled muffin tins with big "dollops' of frosting
and made them all different colors.
It was so fun to see each child's creativity.
They had a huge amount sprinkles to chose from.
Apparently you can't lick your fingers (over and over)
and then pick up sprinkles!
We let them put candles on their cakes and then we
I know...it turned into a big fire hazard
not only because there were so many little kids
standing by their candles,
but also because it took me F-o-r-e-v-e-r to get them all lit.
I know that now, but we didn't have
any scorched eyebrows out of the ordeal.
We sang a beautiful rendition of "Happy Birthday"
and had so much fun.
We also had each kid bring a small gift, that way each got a gift.
And we asked the MawMaws
(that's a southern word for "Grandma" for all you fellow Yankees)
to bring candy for their favor bags instead of presents.
wishing you a very merry un-birthday,
