Birthday, Birthday, Birthday, Birthday, Birthday!

(They did turn 5…hence the 5 birthday’s up there. Although, there are 2 of them, so perhaps I should have done 10? 😉 )

We celebrated Burke and Maggie’s birthday yesterday. I still can’t believe I’m a mom to two 5 year olds. CRAZY!!

We had a blast! Grandpa, Nana, Aunt Meghan, and Aunt Cathy came over to help celebrate, and Grandpa brought one of his famous shaped cakes. (You may remember Mickey Mouse from Logan’s birthday in September, Tyrone from the twins’ birthday last year, or Elmo and McQueen from years past…)

This year, my dad made Cinderella!

Mike grilled up some grub: Hamburgers, Hot dogs, Kielbasa, Steak, potatoes, and Asparagus.


And, of course, there were tons of presents.


Birthday Celebrations

As you know, Logan turned 2 on Friday. We celebrated on Saturday with Nana, Grandpa, and Aunt Cathy.

Grandpa makes shaped cakes. (You may remember Tyrone from the twins’ birthday this year. Or Elmo and McQueen from years past…) And not only does he make them, he frosts them with the BEST icing ever. (powdered sugar frosting. YUM.) Logan’s very first shaped cake was none other than Mickey Mouse himself:

Friday’s Foto Finish Fiesta

Candid Carrie sponsors this one – head over to her blog and find LOTS of links for bloggers who’ve joined in! (You can join in too!)

My Dad makes shaped cakes. It all started when my sister, Meghan, was little. Was the first one a fish? I can’t remember. I know he’s done a tennis racket and ball, the Red Sox socks, a shoe, and many others.

For the twins’ past two birthdays, he’s outdone himself:

He’ll be doing one for them this year too 🙂
