Proud Momma

Most days in our house I spend my time asking Aiden to be careful with Max. They like to wrestle all the time and sometimes Aiden doesn't understand Max isn't as big as him (however he will probably catch up pretty soon!). If they aren't wrestling, they are normally picking on each other or taking toys away from each other...just like me and my sister when we were little!! Don't get me wrong...I'm not complaining! I LOVE to watch them play together...even when they are loud and a bit rough. It fills my heart with joy to see them becoming such good friends. Pictures of them being rough with each other...I could get a million of them! But this past weekend, in the midst of cleaning and what not, I looked over to see them cuddled together sharing a snack and watching some cartoons!! They were completely content with each other and my heart overflowed. Of course, by the time I got the camera the tender moment had passed, but I still got my cuties in the chair together sharing their snack :) I couldn't be more proud as a mom!!! I love being a mother and can't wait to add one more to the mix....some day....

Happy Birthday Austin!

Happy 3rd Birthday Austin!! I was so glad to make this baseball themed cake for Austin who absolutely ADORES baseball! His daddy is a big Atlanta Braves fan so the Braves "A" was fitting for several reasons! Chocolate cake with buttercream and fondant icing with fondant decorations...all edible!! Yummy!

Happy 2nd Birthday Max!

The day is baby is turning 2! Seems like yesterday he was born and I was holding him in my arms for the first time, but then I remember all the great times we've shared so far and it seems like forever ago he was a little swaddled baby!

Happy Birthday to my sweet, cuddly little Max! I hope your birthday is filled with yummy cake, ice cream, hugs, kisses and lots of fun that brings out your adorable little laugh and bright smile that shows off your chubby little cheeks!! I love you to the moon and back!

Max's Green and Yellow Butterfly Party

It's finally time for Max's birthday party at the All-A-Flutter Butterfly party. I had everything planned for my little boy's big day and we loaded up the car with all the little goodies to go with his green and yellow birthday party. One BIG thing I didn't plan for was WIND!!! The butterfly farm is next to a big open field where the rest of our party would be. With no trees to block the wind it was a little hard to set everything up. We got it done and got a few pics of all the cute favors and such I worked so hard on. Wind and all we had a blast and it was a beautiful day. I'll take some wind over rain any day of the week! Enjoy the pics!

Here the kids are learning all the fun little facts about butterflies and the differences between butterflies and moths. The kids above are moths getting ready to break out of their cacoon. Aiden is "Moth Man"
Here's we're learning how butterflies smell, eat, taste, etc. Did you know butterflies hear with their knees and taste with their feet?? You do now!

Max liked the butterflies until they started flapping near his face...then he had enough!

Most of the time Max and Nathaniel (a.k.a Nadaniel if you ask Max) were in the Rubbermaid tub. Who knew? I could have just bought him a storage bin for his birthday and then used it for his clothes later!!

Make a wish Birthday Boy!

This was one cake I really didn't want to cut into...until I remembered it had raspberry filling in it! Then I didn't have a problem at all!

After the pinwheels were gone, Max found another tub to sit in...and sand to throw!

Pinwheel favors for the kids...

We had such a great time and glad everyone came out to the butterfly farm to celebrate Max's 2nd birthday with us!

Happy Birthday Sarah and Ben!

Who doesn't LOVE Mickey and Minnie?? It was so much fun to make a Disney theme birthday cake for an adorable little 2 year old. I hope she ate lots of cake and had every birthday wish come true!! Happy Birthday Sarah!

Yeah!!! It's hard to believe little Ben is already one but his actions prove it!! He's so mobile and looking so much more like a little toddler these days! I was lucky enough to make his special birthday cake for his very first birthday party! A special cake made to match his birthday party decorations. I hope everyone enjoyed it, as much as I had fun making it! Happy Birthday Ben! We had so much fun celebrating with you!

A little smash cake just for the birthday boy himself!!
