A Mousey Birthday.

Yesterday was my Lilah's second birthday and we have spent the weekend celebrating. We started her day with pancakes at iHop, a gigantic Minnie Mouse balloon at Party City, and many hours of playing on her new swingset/playgym that Brady built for her. He just finished it yesterday, so the timing was perfect. She happily went up the ladder and down the slide a million times, each time saying "one more time!" Today we had some family over to celebrate the occasion. In honor of her favorite person in the entire world, Mickey Mouse, I attempted a Mickey-themed cake.

I am by no means an experience cake-decorator, so be warned. I'm sure could have been improved in the technique category, but I had fun making it! (Kinda sounds like an American Idol contestant after Ryan Secrest asks how they think they did.)

Anyways, here are some pictures from the party.

The below three photos show three separate times that Lilah was caught attempting to get into the cake/candy.

Graham was a trooper throughout the party. Such a good baby these days. (And how cute are his little plaid shorts? Not many people can pull of stripes and plaids, but he does!)

Brady's labor of love:


  1. So cute!! Love the cake! I can't believe she is 2!!

  2. The cakes and playground both turned out great!! And Miss Lilah looks super cute on her big bday weekend! :)

  3. I am VERY impressed with your Mickey Cake baking skills!! I can't believe little Lilah is growing up so darn fast! Bo's gonna have to watch out for that cute little girl!

  4. It looks like Lilah's party was a lot of fun. You've outdone yourself with that amazing Mickey cake!


I love to know who's here and what you think! Leave a comment!
