I’m 2!
January 22nd, 2013

We celebrated another b-day this past weekend and Ocee turned 2. He went around all day saying “Happy Day!” Robots were the theme so I used the robot classroom decor I illustrated for Creative Teaching Press as the party decorations. I even use some of it for the cake.

All the food was robot themed too and we also used out metal robot collection for the table too. I knew those little guys would come in handy one day!

1st Birthday Party
January 17th, 2012

We celebrated Ocee’s 1st Birthday over the weekend and thought I’d share some pictures.

We had a dog themed party (he LOVES dogs) and this was his invite:

“Pup cakes” decorated with a few different dogs I illustrated:

The spread. All dog themed food lie puppy chow, bagel dogs, corn dogs, etc:

And then the digging in began. He didn’t get as messy as the Woog did on her 1st:

It’s that time again for ANOTHER birthday. Can’t believe the Woog will be 7! This year we’re doing a Peace, Love & Justin Bieber pajama party. Stay tuned for the cake. Not sure what I’m doing for it yet!

5th birthday cake
April 21st, 2009

This was the 3rd and final cake for the Woog’s 5th birthday (here’s #1 and #2). I’m done eating and baking cake for a while. The party was a school theme since she’ll start kindergarten in the fall. It might be hard to tell from the picture but the pink cake is a backpack.The cake and the party were a big hit with her!

Happy Bithday Woog!
April 13th, 2009

The Woog turned 5 today! Now that she’s 5, she can apparently do a lot of things “since she 5 now.” We had a very small easter lunch and party after church with just us and grandparents. I also made a quick snow white cake.

Next week is her “BIG” party so lot of prep coming up this week! With a cold coming on, the easter bunny coming, cake and riding her new bicycle, she’s now zonked out on the couch.

Happy Birthday Woog!! I love you!!!

Someone is turning 5!
April 10th, 2009

The Woog turns 5 on Easter so she’ll have double the goodies! Her party will have a school theme. These invitations were mailed in a clear envelopes from ClearBags so the world would see that “Walker turns 5!”

Thanks for all who donated and/or re-posted my last blog post. In one week (via a facebook & twitter campaign) they were able raise $7,000 and receive $2000 in skymiles. Very cool!!

Cake and Taxes
April 15th, 2008

The W party went great! Here’s a picture of her cake. All the w’s are chipboard pieces that I bought on etsy.

Oh, and Happy Tax day to those in the US (or at least try and make it happy)! If you work at the IRS, my check will probably pay for your entire salary this year :)
