A boy and his cake...

Well... now he's had a party! It's official- Ole is one! Here's the cake Kjersten and I made while the boys were gone camping. I'd like to say it looked better in person, but it didn't. My frosting was just too soft. Didn't seem to bother anyone!



Had to make some cupcakes as that one cake wouldn't be enough. Knowing that I am odd man out by not liking chocolate, I acquiesced and made devil's food cupcakes.




Jason gets "hold the birthday kid" duty. All the practice "blowing" over the weekend was wasted. He simply would not make an effort. Could be the distraction of 20 people singing at him...

Mmmmmmmm... Good cupcakes, mama!

Carol made the boys the cutest shirts. I desperately wanted to get a photo of them together in their shirts. Ummmm. No. We tried and tried. Mothers of twins have my sympathies. What a pain! You'll have to make due with separate but cute shots. Here's a few of our attempts...




Here's Bret and Carol.
Cael and his shirt. Aren't they just so stinkin' cute?!Brennen got his very own shirt. I love it! He does too! (How does a perpetually happy child manage to look so melancholy? Perhaps it was camping for 3 days and coming home to birthday chaos? Actually, he was in a great mood. Just a bit tired here, I think!)

Carol, those shirts are awesome!! I wish I could do stuff like that!

The cake is so cute, you did a great job decorating it Karen. Remember pikachu? He looked just like the real thing. You make great cakes.

CUTE shirts! It's hard to believe Cael is 1 already. Time sure does fly.

Love the cake! My MIL is a great cake maker & has made my boys cakes now for years. It's so nice. We have lots of train cakes around here too since two of the boys LOVE trains. Love the photo of the birthday boy eating his cupcake with frosting everywhere. :-)
