Photo Catch-up Meg's Birthday

Someone just (as in 6 weeks ago) turned ONE.


Meg shares her birthday with a little boy in our ward. When his mom and I talked about doing a joint "party" I warned her I had an idea for a theme but it might be a bit girlie (as in, not trucks). She gave me carte blanche so I went ahead with my idea.

Last year the kids were born on a 90 degree day in April and all the trees blossomed at once. So the theme was "Popcorn popping on the apricot tree" and I spent a good deal of my day making this...



Which as you can see had three cupcakes at the top that could be pulled off to make 2 birthday "cakes" and a pity "don't feel left out" cake for Tessa.

Which she enjoyed

Love the party theme, that's so cute. I haven't been blogging for a while so I had to catch up on your pics/stories. I feel your potty training heartache!!! We're doing the same thing with Erin--for the last six months or so ;0) I'm just waiting for her to train herself someday. Hopefully things are going more smoothly for Tess by now.
