2nd Birthday Bash

I haven’t been taking that many photos lately, the winter blues set in, the weather is foul and I barely have left the house.  We have also been re painting our walls so our weekends have been rather busy.  Yesterday my little guy turned 2, and that is an occasion to get the camera out.

We end up having a couple of birthday celebrations at our place, one with the family, and then something at home.

This is the wonderful Sesame Street cake made by Jo needless to say he was very impressed.

This year I opted out on the party, but we did invite some friends over for a play and pike lets, I was a bit worried we may have had to cancel his playdate as he ended up with conjunctivitis, but it was all cleared up.

My dodgy attempt at a Thomas The Tank Cake!  He didn’t mind what it looked like though, he just wanted cake!

Turning 9 and a Lego Minifigure Cake

A few weeks ago my eldest boy turned 9.  The night before he asked me to hide his presents and then jumped up early, dragging me out of bed to play “hot” or “cold” till he found them.

This year we decided against a party, but to do a fun activity and invite one friend to join us.

He chose mini golf.

We didn’t keep score but just played for fun.

After mini golf, he went off with his Aunty to pick a birthday present.

In the afternoon I decorated the birthday cake. I attempted to make a LEGO minifigure cake. I made two quantities of vanilla cake from the Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book and cooked them the day before. I found a  LEGO Minifigure template online that I used as a guide to get the right size and shape for my cake tin.

Then I made up the icing, and also bought some black icing in a tube, for the outlines of the LEGO man.

I think he turned out alright, the boy was happy so that is all that matters.

The present he chose from his Aunty that is worth two years of birthdays, wonder if he will remember that 😉
