Meet Mr. Big Guy

Meet Mr. Big Guy

Mr. Big Guy was found in my step dads co-workers front yard.  And then I was called, because everyone knows that I am sucker for strays.  Which I don't think is a bad thing.

So I made a trip to Houston at 6 am to pick him up
 
 
 We brought him home, and named him Mr. Big Guy

 
He is a sweet heart.  You can tell he had a good home & I bet they miss him.

But we love him now

Welcome Home Mr. Big Guy!!!!

Birthday Party

This is a BIG party.  Baby is turning ONE!!!!  I cant believe it.  It seems like I just had him & now he is ONE!!!!!  Two of our sons have birthdays in February.  We took our older son to see the Moody Garden Penguins, in exchange we told him, that was his party. 
 
 
 BUT I guess im a softy, so I told him that he and Micah's party would be together, but it was mostly Micah's party.
 
Micah's party has an "UP" theme,
 
 this will be in the kitchen & Noah's theme is Penguins & will be in the living room.
 
Okay, lets get started.  I had an idea I got of of Pintrest to do a giant #1 cake, frost it with white frosting & then line it with M&M's
 
 
Click Here - for detailed cake instructions
 
 
 
 
Now to do the kitchen.  I wanted to create a fun colorful kitchen, that would give the "UP" theme.
 
And hung above the table




 

 
In the living room we did a penguin theme
 
 I cut out tons of snow flakes
 
 
displayed our penguin paintings
 the entry way

Babys Cake

I saw a really cute idea on how to make a cake with colored cake balls in the middle.
 
First I dyed white cake mix
 

 

Then I used my cake ball maker to make cake balls.  I under cooked them so that they could be cooked in the cake
 
 
I then added the cake to a large cake pan
 
 
Then I added colored cake balls
 
 
Covered with cake mix

 


 
 And baked
 
 
 
Once it was baked and cooled I cut into a 1 shape

 
I sliced some of the extra open so you could see how neat it was!

 
Fun!!!

 
I then frosted it and lined with M&M's

 
Fun first birthday cake
