Another Wonderful Birthday For The Boogz

in Kids

The night before his birthday, we grilled meats and baked cupcakes.

Prepping Cupcakes

Two Cupcakes

This cupcake was decorated by Greg. I crossed out his #fail at writing Boogie.

..oogie reject cupcake

The day of, Greg blew up balloons and put up streamers.

Balloon Prep

Jayden greeted his guests completely bottomless. He was convinced he was supposed to walk around in his birthday suit.


He had a little ‘tude all day. Every other word that came out of his mouth was, “No.”



He got it together towards the end of the party.



More photos on Flickr…
I didn’t take as many as last year!

Here’s a video recap. Excuse the singing around 1:42.

Thanks to everyone who wished our little guy a happy birthday!

Special thanks to 191 Unlimited for sending over the purple big boy shirt and Wilton for sending us a generous package of cake baking accessories! Stay tuned for a fabulous Wilton giveaway!

    How cute! Everything from the birthday suit to the pouty face to his big smiles! He is such a cutie…And those cupcakes looked yummy! Plus I never knew that there were star shaped tins! I have got to hunt that down. Is that blue icing sorta glittery as well?! At least it looked that way from the pics. If so that is fabulous!

    He is adorable in his purple button-up!

    And I love your ERGO. I have the dark chocolate colored one (best carrier ever!), but I love the gray one you are wearing too.

    How cute!! I just love the heart shaped cupcakes and I got so tickled by the photo of him grinnin’ whilst hanging out on your back! It took me a moment to realize what I was seeing!! Well it seems that he had a great birthday and he is blessed to have such loving and warm people in his life šŸ™‚

    Great job on the cupcakes (even the fail at writing Boogie, LOL). Jayden’s little pouty face is so cute and him flashing his goodies at everyone must have been a sight, LOL. It looks like he enjoyed his special day.
