Anyway, Ella requested that Riley have a Bird Party, so that's just what we did. Enjoy...
Believe it or not, it actually took me all week to decorate. Pathetic I know, but a little everyday with the kids 'helping' really slows things down!
|Ella's birthday banner, she was so proud!|
|These are the pictures that I took of Riley each month. I could have done a better job of cropping them together but you get the idea!|
|This is my new favorite picture of Riley|
Gotta love the fake mustaches! Kinda wishing I kept one for myself!
Next, the Bird-day cake. Those of you who got to eat it, you can thank Ella and Aiden (and maybe Brian too). Aiden did the worm jars and Ella made the nests. And yes, that graham cracker crust was homemade. Nothing like letting kids go wild with a rolling pin and crackers! I'll add in the links to the recipes, your welcome.
**We didn't add the strawberries in the mix, but opted for them on top. Also, we added 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice.

**We didn't add the cinnamon.
|Ella went a little crazy with the eggs in the nest. Jelly Beans are so gross!|
|There was no face dive into her cake. What can I say?|
|Well, almost everyone smiled...|
|Sorry Rach, I had to...|
|You too, Bek!|
|I didn't know he was coming...|
|...and there's me crying like a baby.|
|My favorite of the bunch.|
I think Ella did a pretty good job. She's my little photographer in the making. Now if only she can figure out the whole eye squinting thing she'd be alright!
This is from the party we had with Riley on her actual birthday. We had breakfast that night so that's a cinnamon roll she's got her candle in.
|I guess she's using the force...it doesn't seem to be working.|
|Now we're talkin'.|
|Ha, she didn't like it! This will be the same face she makes when she turns 40.|
Happy Bird-day Riley!
