What was I thinking

December 13, 2009

I let 10 screaming kids into my house today for my sons birthday party.  Now Blakes birthday is not until next sunday the 20th, but it is so close to christmas we always have his party a few weeks ahead.  We did an at home party this year since christmas was so expensive for us and I ask again WHAT WAS I THINKING.  They were fairly well behaved I will give them that, we had a couple minor injuries all easily solved but man were they loud.

We decorated gingerbread men cookies, watched a movie and had popcorn.  Then they ate pizza and then cake and Blake opened his gifts.  The only time it was quiet was when they were eating, i wanted to keep feeding them it was sweet silence.

Blake had told me he wanted a camoflauge cake for his birthday but then he wanted to decorate gingerbread men so we went with a gingerbread man/winterish theme.  The loot bags were christmas mugs with a few candies in them and then a hot chocolate cone topped with white and normal choclate and marshmallows.  I wanted to do a gingerbread man cake but we try to stick with the kids requests so we did both.  We were up til 3 am decorating this cake and then up again at 8 to get ready for his party, I am exhausted now.

We even did a camo on the inside of the cake with a similar method I used for Maddisyns cake
I will add pics of the loot bags once Jen sends them to me i forgot to take my own but her little girl Vi was here so she is going to take a pic for me.

I just wanted to share another cake that we made.  We started to bake it at 5 pm and by the time it was baked and decorated, well we just finished it 20 minutes ago at 1 am phew that was a long time.  I am rather proud please keep in mind we do not claim to be professionals but love doing this for our family and friends, we do not follow a book we wing it all the way.  You can also go HERE to see some of the other cakes we have done in the past.

This one is for a new friends birthday which is tomorrow, i hope she likes it.
