No Forks Needed!!

November 24, 2008

Last night we had a very small family birthday party for Sarah. The kids were totally cracking us up when it came time to sing happy birthday and cut the cake. I put the cake down and turned around to get the candles and lighter. Look at their faces.....PRICELESS!! They are all trying to figure how to swipe some icing while we were not looking. The two little boys are my nephews Aidan, on the left, and Ashton, sitting in Nick's lap!

The picture quality is not the best in these photos, I was facing the stainless steel appliances and the reflection caused a lot of glare, but I still thought they were cute enough to post:)

Sarah loved it when we sang happy birthday to her....something tells me my girl likes being the center of attention!! Aidan can't wait to get his hands on that cake and Ashton is just trying to figure out what all the fuss is about......Are they not the cutest little boys you have ever seen?

Since we didn't do a smash cake this year, we let Sarah go at it....No forks needed! I think someone is looking like he wants to join his cousin in the fun!

Sarah showing us her face full of icing!

We let Aidan have his own corner and he was happy to dive right in......I have never seen the little guy open his mouth so wide!

This is my favorite photo....look at the smiles on these two!! Do you think they like the cake? They have so much fun together.....and it shows!!

A special thanks to my Mom for buying Sarah her cake....I have always loved this photo of Sarah wearing her pink feather my Mom had them put it on her cake!!

After celebrating these last couple of day's we are ready to move on to the next holiday.....Thanksgiving! Wednesday we will be leaving for Cape Cod and we cannot wait....we are anxious to see our family and enjoy a relaxing holiday of good food and fun!

Hope you all have a great week.....and thanks for you votes on the Christmas card picture:)

What fun!!! These are some of my all time favorite Sarah pictures. She looks SO happy with life. The pics of her and Aiden crack me up. Two little peas in a pod, huh?

The cake, the hat, the guests and the birthday girl are just perfect.

Have a great vacation. We'll talk soon!

You're such a good mom...I'm sure I would have freaked if I saw my kids diving into such a beautiful cake! I will remember this always and not be so uptight about such fun and simple pleasures!

I'm glad she enjoyed herself. I love the hat. Do you use it year after year, just changing the number?
Your nephews are sweet too!

Have a fun trip.
