Because nothing says happy birthday like neon pink cake! Especially if you’re 5 and 3.
And nothing says “hallelujah no one will see this mess!” like a crumb coat
This is what you end up with for decorations when you take said 5 & 3 year olds with you to pick out party supplies.
They did request a pool party so I should have known what I was getting myself into.
Tiny little peaks of whipped cream perfection
For those who weighed in on the great party favor debate via facebook, I settled on what I think was fun and practical. Have laminator, will make party favors. Laminated coloring sheets with dry erase crayons. The party was so small I was able to make each child a sheet with their name on it, one with something they liked or were interested in, and a laminated sheet of story paper.
The bigs got cookies 🙂
3 & 5. You’ll probably see those candles again on my birthday.
Because nothing says “I’m glad you’ve survived my parenting skills for 5 & 3 years!” like a pink ombre cake
Julia was sad the dogs weren’t invited.
Pool party mid-September? Sure, why not! It’s Houston after all.
Philip was just happy he got a broom.
Skeptical Julia was, well, skeptical
As she had a right to be apparently.
Happy happy birthday sweet girls! And a big thanks to all our friends for making it so special!
