Kaden’s 3rd Birthday

•November 1, 2009 • Comments Off on Kaden’s 3rd Birthday

We celebrated a couple of days late and we were privileged to have Uncle Mark come down for dinner that day so he was able to share in the very minor festivities.

This was the very pathetic cake featured at the party.  I used a cake pan that only slightly left the desire Big Bird imprint — and when I added the frosting…well, we scraped off some of the face you could see who it was SUPPOSED to be!! Good news is, Kaden didn’t mind a bit. 🙂

Dorian and the birthday boy!

Mark is holding up the present from Grandpa and Grandma Kelly.  Good job, Mark.

David is looking a bit devilish with frosting on his face.

Getting excited about the gifts…

And here’s the family…  Thanks for coming, Mark!

We carved pumpkins this year!!!

Nana and Poppy bought the entire family pumpkins wo we carved them!  In the past we have been party poopers in this regard so this is definitely a step in the right direction — only problem is, we carved them a little too early so they turned all wrinkly and smooshed looking — but we won’t include pictures of that here. 🙂

Grace was invited to one of her favorite friend’s birthday party – Marlie.  And this year it was a costume party.  Thanks to Nana, we had a high quality witch costume and Grace let mom do the makeup – green face and all.

Birthday Girl Photo Shoot – September 16, 2009

•September 16, 2009 • Comments Off on Birthday Girl Photo Shoot – September 16, 2009

I never realized the trouble I would have if I tried to explain that Dorian’s birthday was on Wednesday and that her party was on a different day.  When I told Dorian “today is your birthday” she said “But mom! Today can’t be my birthday!  Where’s my party?  Where are my friends?”  We took these pictures so that we would have a nice photo for her birthday cake — she’s wearing her favorite dress at that time.
