Let's get this party started!

And so the chaos known around here as 'birthday week' has begun.  We celebrated my MIL's birthday on Sunday.  We'll be doing my birthday at pizza Thursday, followed by Poppy's birthday on Saturday.  And Mother's day on Sunday.  Oh, and I almost left out our wedding anniversary on Saturday too.  

Poppy and I were inspired by the cake the fairies bake for Sleeping Beauty when we made my MIL's birthday cake.  Poppy didn't think we would be able to do it without magic wands, but I think we pulled it off.  :)


All that celebrating means a lot of cake eating (and making)!  I'll try to post pics of everything.  We decided to tone it down with Poppy's birthday this year.  Just smaller family parties and a party at school.   She is soooo excited for all of the celebrating!

I've been dying to catch Sam's sweet smile he gives me when he wakes up from his nap every day.  So when I saw he was sleeping extra late on Saturday, I decided to go in his room and open his shades and try to snap a few pics of him waking up...
 {sleeping baby - sucking his thumb and holding his blankie}
 Wait a minute, this isn't the sweet smile he always gives me!  That's the stink-eye!
 Let's just say he was not happy that I had a big black camera in front of my face.  As soon as I put the camera down, it was all smiles.

Ha! I love the stink-eye you got from Sam! Of course, I'm sure the smile is adorable. But the stink was pretty awesome.
Is Poppy talking on the phone while eating cake batter? Now that's my kind of multitasking :)

I agree-that's what we did this year for B's party-only family. It was a nice break and next year, we will do a party again! Happy Birthday to you all :-)

Have a fun week of all your celebrations!! Enjoy each one of them. Happy birthday to you and Poppy!! I hope you get the chance to get away with just Marc for your anniversary. Cute pics of Sam, I could just eat him up. He is one of those boys that makes me want a boy someday!:)

Seriously... how do you get this all done, AND have two kiddos?! You amaze me.

I think we're going "big bash" for Spencer this year since it's [hopefully] the last one while we are here...
