Samuels Birthday Party....Part One

Brandon and I spent a long time preparing for Sammy's birthday party. I had quite the guilty conscience for celebrating it two weeks late. Everyone told me that it would be different with the second child - there is just so much more to do!

This is the homemade "smasher" cake that I made for my baby. Not the prettiest cake in the world but after drew, I realized that there really isn't much of a need for an expensive cake or one that you buy at the store at all.
This is the caterpillar cake that I made for him. I'm not the best cake decorator in the world but I definitely think that I should give myself more credit. Drew really liked it and so did all of the other kids.

We have such a wonderful family. They are so generous and loving when it comes to our children. Samuel got some really great gifts! He really did get a great mix of toys, clothes and some awesome books! We read "Green Eggs and Ham" as soon as everyone left.

Here he is with that cake. He didn't smash it as much as I thought that he would. As a matter of fact, my baby almost acted a little nervous. He didn't really act like he wanted people to look at him. I'm not sure that he knew what the big deal was.

There will be more pics to come tomorrow! We took so many and the light was really bad - needless to say, I have a lot of editing to do.

  1. Cute cakes! Did you hear about my baby girl's second birthday party that was six weeks late? Besides, he doesn't know the difference. I'm glad you both enjoyed the day.
