The long awaited post :)

Last week was a blogger fail :(  I got busy getting ready to head out on our camping trip and the blog took a back seat!  I have good news though!  I'm finally posting those pictures and videos from when my parents were here a couple weekends ago celebrating the girl's birthdays! :)
Mom has a tradition with the girls...they always pick a cake design out of these books, and then Mom makes them and the girls decorate them.  Saturday was no different.  She made the cakes a head of time and brought them down with her, along with homemade frosting and candies.  While Mom and I set to work on the cakes, the guys and girls played the new game we got!

Let the fun begin!

Oh boy!  This is supposed to be a swan ;)

LOL  Mom was frosting the swan and she went to sit in the chair to her right...only she missed by a lot and ended up down here!  LOL  She had frosting on her knive when she went down and that went flying!  The frosting ended up flying onto the cake and no one was hurt so it was all good!

Looking better!

Let the decorating begin :)

Looks great!

And then there was this cake... it didn't come out of the pan well and we thought the fish cake would be easier to construct than the swan, so we saved it for that cake.

Since the cake was sooo bad on top and we didn't think frosting that part was going to go well, Mom decided we should flip it before we start cutting it and then we have a smoother "top" to frost....this is how that went down!  LOL  I was laughing so hard!  So excuse the "Geiger" side of us and it pours out ;)

We had our doubts that it would turn into anything good, but it actually turned out really good!

Decorating the fish...
And its done!  The only thing we forgot was to dye the fish orange...but Madalyn forgot that she asked for it to be orange so its all good.

 They have gotten sooo big!

Then we sang to the girls...

Of course we had to finish the day off with the traditional tea party!
Mom and I were so stuffed that we just served the guys and girls.  They had a lot of fun!

They even played it proper with their pinkies out and all ;)
