Happy Third Birthday (Part I)
We had Brendan's family Birthday party on Saturday and it was a blast. (Pun somewhat intended as it was a space/ robot theme). Sadly, my parents and Brent's Granddaddy and Ellen were all sick and unable to attend. The fun started the day before though with lots of baking and other preparations that my parents did get to share in.
This morning, we woke up to some final preparations before our guests arrived. Maggie put on her party dress (on loan from Serenity - we LOVE it). B, got a little impatient as the decorations had gone up the night before and he was ready to get the show on the road. I, of course, made recipes I hadn't tried before, which is always an adventure, but they turned out relatively well. I tried to keep it simple and only made a breakfast casserole, fruit salad, and maple oat scones. Oh, well and the two different birthday cakes- one alien space ship and one robot:) Everything was very blue with blue cake, blue decorations and blue ice cream with gummy bears (courtesy of Grammy and Granddaddy).
