Baby(Cup)Cakes' 2nd Birthday Party

Yesterday we had a small party for BabyCakes.  Just a few friends, pretty weather, and food.

I used a plate and some ribbon for a last-minute door decoration.

Streamers and Dollar Store mylar balloons are a staple of birthday parties around here.

As are yellow cakes with chocolate frosting.  Yum!

I may have filled the funfetti cupcakes a little too full.  I only got 14 instead of 24 out of the box.    BigBoy said it just made more space to cover with icing, which was from a can like spray-cheese but tasted like buttercream.

 BabyCakes wore the cupcake dress Grandma made her and of course had to rock the pigtails like only a 2-year-old can.

The usual suspects were there for the fun.

After pizza we broke out the cupcakes.

Emma snuck another one when no one was looking.  Atta girl.  :)

It's a shame BigBoy didn't enjoy them. ;)

Happy Birthday, sweet ruffian BabyCakes!

And Happy New Year to you, dear blaaaahg readers!

CUTE family photo! We are throwing together a makeshift party for the twins on Sunday so we can celebrate before we leave. It's going to be creatively uncreatieve- which pains me!

HA, I have yet to throw a "creative" party. They usually just include playing at our house and some decorations. :) Oh and cake. You can't forget the cake.
