Birthday Weekend Recap

We had a visit from my mom this past weekend who came out to celebrate Fritter and Ladybug's birthdays with us.  The weather was great, the visit was nice, and the kids got totally spoiled by grandma.  
Fritter's homemade dinosaur birthday cake.  I found a great video tutorial on how to make it here.

Grandma got Ladybug a dollhouse for her birthday.  I'm just a little excited about it.  :)

Fritter got his first remote control car.  His dad is more than just a little excited.
I'm not sure if any other weekend will ever compare to this past one.  I feel like I need to sleep 12 hours just to make up for all the excitement.  We invited a few friends to celebrate with us.  The kids had so much fun.  I'm very thankful to have such good friends around us.

Batter up!  Remind me the next time I need a pinata to just make one instead of buying it.

Picking out which dinosaur would be his.

This is a store bought cake.  I had planned on cupcakes, but in the end decided less stress was better. 

Sunflower enjoyed watching the festivities. 
I don't think I'll be wanting birthday cake again anytime soon. Do you think Ladybug would settle for, say, quiche on her birthday?
