Yikes # 2 - Another September 15, 2012 Birthday

Since Timothy and Christopher share a birthday, we usually combine activities to make it easier on Mommy.  We also have a tradition in our family that on your 8th birthday, you get to have a "real" party.  The birthday boy picks the theme, invites his friends and we do a birthday here at home.  This year it was Timothy's 8th birthday, so he got to have his "real" party...but what about Christopher?  Well, we didn't want to just ignore his special day, so we invited Grace, Rachel and Josh to share Christopher's day with an Eric Carle themed birthday.  (Aunt Darlene was very pregnant with the twins at this point, so it was really a day of giving her a break and letting Christopher have some friends share his birthday.)  Fun, fun, FUN!! 

Ummm...my first attempt at chocolate brownie cupcakes for Christopher's cake.  BOMB!  These looked PATHETIC, but have no fear!  Martha is NOT going to waste all this work!  I figured out a way to still use these reject cupcakes to make a cute little cake for the party.

We played Pin the Tail on the Elephant...

... got excited over gifts ...

loved opening gifts ...

... and had the cutest Very Hungry Caterpillar cake ever!

What a happy little 6 year old we have now!

Happy Birthday, Christopher!  We love you!
