You say it's Your Natey's Birthday!

Natey boy's birthday was so fun! We had been building it up that he was going to have a birthday party and he was stoked about it. He woke up in the morning and was already talking about his "dino party". All we needed for our outdoor, cookout style party was the weather to cooperate. You see, this is New England and it has been raining ALL week. I do have my mom, the guardian angel of the weather, on my side so I wasn't that worried. Of course it turned out beautifully and was the only hot sunny day we've had in over a week. Of course it then poured again last night and this morning, but that was not my concern! The other daunting task was the cake. I had mentioned before that I was going to attempt to make him a dinosaur birthday cake. I figured it couldn't be that hard, but I hadn't anticipated the frosting part being so freakin hard!! I have a new found respect for cake decorators everywhere! I think it actually came out awesome and at least it looked like a dinosaur and not a dog or something! I managed to get icing all over the board, but let's pretend that's not there, ok?
I made goodie bags for the kids and a birthday hat for Nate.

My friend Joelle's son was sick. I was so disappointed cause he's Natey's little bestie, but she brought him by, said hi and dropped off Natey's present. We wished he could have stayed but the poor kid was feeling evidenced by the fact that Joelle had to clean puke out of her car when she got home. Oops. :o(
Nathan was geeking out when everyone sang him Happy Birthday. He looked so darn proud that it made me tear up a bit. Yes, I know that seems to be happening a lot to this pregnant mommy these days!
I even managed to get in a picture or two! The party was on the smaller side, but I think it worked out perfectly. All of the kids had a good time and there were no hitting or biting incidents which is amazing with three 3 year olds, three 2 year olds and a 1 year old on hand!!


  1. It was a great time!!! And the cake was super cute!!!

    How did you do that collage picture at the end? I really like that!!

  2. The cake came out AWESOME!! And it looks like the party was a lot of fun! :)

  3. Looks like Natey had a great 2nd birthday celebration! You did a very nice job on the cake. I "do" cakes, and I think it turned out wonderfully, (not that I'm an expert or anything).

  4. WOW! You did good Momma! I love the cake and all the party favors. Looks like Natey had an AWESOME party!

  5. Your Dino cake could not have turned out better! I LOVE all the details and colors were great. Gift bags were excellent too.. Don't doubt yourself because your more creative than you give yourself credit for. Awesome Job Kam!!

    Natey was so cute in his little dino themed outfit and when he sang happy birthday it melted my heart. Glad his birthday was fantastic and the weather held out for you. Have a great day sweets!

  6. Happy 2nd Birthday, Natey!
    It looks like he had a great party! You did an awesome job on the cake and gift bags!!!

  7. Looks like it was a super successful party for Natey! And man, that cake is perfect! (I don't have the talent nor the patience to do that.) I love the pictures of the two of you too.

  8. Looks like it was a super successful party for Natey! And man, that cake is perfect! (I don't have the talent nor the patience to do that.) I love the pictures of the two of you too.

  9. Ok, I'm totally impressed by the cake!! Wow!!!! And the goodie bags... and the hat... and even the utensil holder! Did you make that too? Looks like it turned out great! And you look great, pregnant Mama!!!

    In other news, I'm so jealous of your 101 in 1001... I'm staring at it right now and see you've had 12 date nights with Aaron so far. How have you managed that??? I feel bad asking Kat to babysit since she's here during the week. And I've completely lost track of my new recipes. I suck at goals!

  10. Looks like a fun party! (Had no idea you knew Liz in real life either!)

    I love how the cake turned out - perfect! Natey is so adorable in the video and you look like a very happy mother of one and a half! :)

  11. You made everything I am seeing here? Oh my goodness, Kameron. I am super impressed! How did you manage.

    My kids both have birthdays in December. Please plan to be in California at that time to help me out. I mean, I know you will have a new baby and all, but we can make it work. :)


  12. Hey, I've got my map all done... and I'm hopping in the car now! Be ready for me! (I wish!)
