The big Brown birthday party!!

On Saturday we had a big birthday party for all of our family birthdays in the next week or so: Kayleigh, Cameron, Dad, and Laura.  It was the big first birthday for our little ones, so they each had their own special cake to annihilate.

This is my first attempt covering whole cakes with fondant...I need practice! :)  But it was fun.

We spent the whole day at Laura's house, and most of mine was used putting the cakes together.  I took a break long enough to watch the kids open their presents.

She loves it!

What's that?

Oooh, fun!  Thanks grandpa and grandma!

After all of that excitement, it was nap time!

for lots of people...

After dinner, they were ready for their cakes.

Kayleigh just wanted to pull the circles off of hers.

Great grandma tried to help her see the yummy stuff inside...

She wasn't sure she liked it that way.

Then daddy tried to help her get into it by pushing her hand into her cake.

She knew she didn't like that!!  What can I say?  She's a dainty little lady.

Aunt Laura tried a more gentle approach to get her to taste it.

Then Meleah made an attempt...

But she didn't think it looked very appetizing.

She did finally realize that it was not disgusting.

And then she was a little more exuberant.

She still was very careful and methodical though.
Such a girl!  I love those long Turpin fingers :). 

Cameron didn't have any problem digging in once someone showed him how.

He just kept looking over at her and wondering, "what the heck was wrong with her??  It tastes fine to me!"

Jay helped him get a little more messy.

Time to clean up!

Here is the final damage on the cakes

While the babies ate their cake, some of the kids enjoyed the "edible playdough"

After all of that everyone else finally got cake and ice cream.
All Clean!!

Play time!
