Norton & Eudora’s Birthday Party!

A birthday party can be an adventure.  Some parents want to plan a huge birthday party, complete with renting a hall and hiring ponies.  Some parents will just do a simple cake.  Others fall somewhere in between.  With Eudora and Norton’s birthdays only eight days apart and the in-laws getting ready to travel again, it made sense to do a joint birthday party… even if it was much harder on my husband and cake decorator.

This was supposed to be a Wordless Wednesday post, but I realized that I had way too much to say about the event to be wordless.  The cakes were both made at home and decorated by my loving husband.  No, it’s not his job.  He’s a systems administrator who does awesome Martha Stewart worthy cakes for our kids’ birthdays.

Eudora’s smash cake, lovingly baked and decorated by her daddy.

Norton’s Thomas the Train cake. It was going to be a 3D Skarloey, but we didn’t have enough red or black icing dye.

What birthday party is complete without candles? Norton is getting ready to blow out some candles for the third time. (He kept blowing them out before we got a chance to sing.)

Eudora started out picking at her cake… then she got a taste of it and really went to town!

Happy birthday to my beautiful babies!

    Great cakes. We are a something in between type family although I love making cool cakes for the kids. Now that my son is older he simply has a good friend over for sleepover, watch movie, play video games etc. We also take him out for dinner on his actual birthday (this is really a treat for me)
