Playing catch up!

Wow! It has been a very summer and I have really been slacking on this blog, so I am going to try to play catch up so some of these pics are from July.
We had Gray and Easton's birthday parties together this year since their B-day's are just a few weeks apart. They had a Great Party at Monkey Joe's
which is a new inflatable play place in our area and it is so much fun!
Grayson is really into the whole Toy Story thing so we did a Toy Story theme for him
and Easton LOVES Mickey Mouse{who doesn't}hehe! so we did Mickey Mouse theme for him.

I tend to be one of those Mommies that go overboard with birthday's but I LOVE it. 
 Instead of sending home party favor bags full of stuff that is going to get thrown out later I have started making little treats for the guest {everyone likes to eat}!
So this year for G & E's party I made
Mickey Mouse Brownie Pops!  
They were a TOTAL hit with the kiddos and the parents, and they were fun to make!
Place them in clear sucker bags and tie with cute ribbon and you have a great party favor.

I started making my boys cakes a few years ago and boy is it ALOT of work but it so so worth the long hours and little sleep leading up to party day. With making fondant, rolling fondant, coloring fondant, cutting by hand every detail, baking cakes {8 cakes total}, making buttercreme, icing, placing the fondant and decorating, it took me aprox. 9 hours. 

Grayson's party was Toy Story so this is a few pics of the cake that I made for him.

Easton's was Mickey Mouse so here are a few pics of his Mickey Cake!

Grayson about to blow out his #8 candle!

Easton blowing out his # 2 candle!
It was a Great day spent with wonderful Family and Friends!
