Happy Birthday Sayer!!

This hat was one of his gifts, and I thought he looked so cute in it!

Sayer's turned ONE on Monday! Crazy huh?! I still can't believe it. On Monday we made pizza and had a fun family night and sang happy birthday.

At the end of the day, my kitchen looked like this...
Not a spare inch on the counter. It was worse than it looks, trust me.

Yesterday (Saturday) we had a little birthday shindig for him, with another little boy in our ward. It was great fun filled with tons of sugar...





Nate asked me how many sticks of butter I used to make all the cakes, cupcakes, toffee and frosting. I think it was 12 or 13 in all. Gross, huh?! But it was worth it. For more on the cake, click here.

Sayer loved his cake and was not shy about diggin' right in. This kid loves food. LOVES it!!
We had the party in the community room in the basement, and the lighting is so terrible. That's why everything looks all yellow-y.

Conversation with Asher about Sayer's party...

Mom:  Asher, what did you do at Sayer's birthday party?

Asher:  I made a mess with my cake.

Mom:  Oh, that's right, you did.  What else did you do?

Asher:  I pushed down the babies.

Sweet.

Happy Birthday, Sayer! I remember when you were born (via your mommy's blog), and seeing your cute face made me so anxious to have Rose (who was born just a couple of weeks later)!

P.S. Totally cute cake/cupcakes, Morgan! I saw pics of them in a magazine and never imagined someone would be so skilled as to actually make them. Yours turned out awesome!

That's so funny! Does Asher even know that pushing down babies is bad?

Morgan said...

that's a good question. i think he does. but who really knows with 2 year olds? i think he knows, he probably just doesn't care that much! ;) hmmm... what does that say about my parenting??

I love the cake! That is so cute! You are looking so awesome, too! I wish that I had looked like that when Olivia was 1!

Happy Birthday to Sayer! That cake is sooo cute - you are a baking whiz! I laughed so hard at the "pushed down the babies" comment- classic Asher! Audrey still talks about Asher from time to time. By the way, I heard a rumor that you guys are coming back for the summer. I hope it's true!

I CANNOT believe that Sayer is a year old!! And I doubly CANNOT believe that you find time- while being a mommy to two rambunctious boys- to make a cake that is THAT cute and DELICIOUS and BLOG about it too!!
P.S. I am sooo glad that you put it on the Chocolate Kitchen site...I always love when you post new things there :o)
