Birthday Season In Full Effect

Ahh Birthday season in this house is fast and furious.  By the end of the third one it all feels a little bit like a whirlwind.  Well 2 out of 3 have come and gone and we had a fantastic time.  

I still can't believe that my oldest son is 8 years old.  How crazy is that!!!  It seems like it was just yesterday that our lives changed and our little family had began.  

I told Keegan you pick whatever kind of cake you want and I will make it so he decided a monster truck cake was his pick.  


 Thanks to Jessicas Cake Blog for the tips on how to create this.  



 The truck is made out of Rice Krispie and carved in the shape of a truck  


There was a point when I was making this one that I thought he might just get a tire, lol.  


This year Keegan decided he wanted to go rock climbing so we had 6 boys and one little peanut that gave it a shot and they all did such a good job. 


 This was Chase's first time climbing and this guy certainly has no fear.  Right to the top on the first go.


Even though Makai was too little to get harnessed and climb to the top he wasn't going to let that stop him.  I think he is ready for the big leagues. 


I love giving personalized water bottles for favors, it is something that the kids will use and since and isn't a throw away favor. 


My kids favorite Birthday favor is the personalized t-shirts.  For this party we used a rock climbing image and their names.




They come so far in such a short time.

Wow - that cake is amazing! You did such a great job. I'll never forget the laughs from my family when I attempted to make a bunny cake. I'm definitely challenged in that area. Happy birthday to all your little guys!

Hey Lisa, I just became your newest follower too. I had no idea you love cake decorating and party planning as much as I do. I had a cake business for 5 years. I thought it was so cute that we have both done a campout birthday too. I will be hopefully posting some of my kids past parties this next week. Thanks for sharing all of the great parties, Helen
