Official Birthday Party

We actually had Mary Audrey's official birthday party this weekend. Yes, I know its been 6 weeks since her real birthday (Sept 22) but we were in the height of remodeling and moving during her birthday so we delayed the actual party. Just so you don't call DHS on us, we did celebrate her birthday on her birthday at McDonald's and it included other people than me and John and we had cupcakes. Now that we have that cleared up, on to the party.

My good friend Betsey has been encouraging me to make Mary Audrey's birthday cake, including the homemade baker's icing. I really didn't want to but I thought I would give this a try. I do like to bake/cook but it is not as convenient has it used to be! *wink* *wink* Anyways, I did bake the cake and make the icing and from my reviews it turned out well. I have some work to do with food coloring and decorating. Mary Audrey enjoyed it and that is all that matters. :) Thank you Bets for the encouragment and letting me borrow all of your supplies!!!

Here are some pictures from the party.

The Cake! I wanted the icing to be a lime green but it came out like pale green. So, there informs you about the professional development I need regarding food coloring. Personally, I thought it was pretty good for my first time.

Our family.

MA loved unwrapping all of her gifts. I forsee that Christmas will be a lot of fun this year.

Aunt Gigi, Uncle Jo Jo, E-ya, & the trips sent MA this tutu that included a wand and bracelets. She didn't take it off for quite some time. It is so CUTE!

Can't leave any cards out. They are very important.

MA being the ham that she is ... :)
