The birthday craziness!

Well, the party came and went. It was a bit insane, but the kids had TONS of fun! The house is a disaster, but I'm happy about it, means everyone had a great time! All of the kids seemed to love the cowboy boot sandwiches, sheriff badge and cowboy hat Jell-O jigglers, and sheriff badge, cowboy boot and cowboy hat ice cream sandwiches!

I apologize to those who were here for a bit of the chaos when it came to opening presents. It was a good lesson learned that we need to sit down with the kids and focus on one present at a time. I am sorry that the kids didn't get a chance to thank everyone individually (one of those after the fact moments).

Anyway... I was thoroughly impressed that the majority of guests showed up in cowboy/cowgirl gear! Of course I didn't get around to taking pictures of everyone, but it was VERY cute! Thanks everyone for coming! And a special thanks to my wonderful sister for helping Friday and Saturday with the cake and decorating the house (she thought of the lasso around the numbers... so cute)!

Here are a few pics of the craziness! (poor Madisyn had a fat lip :( )

Can you see Landon's interest in getting into the cake?! Moments after this, he dug into his #2 :)

I completely forgot to buy candles! These were the only ones (besides beer can candles) that I could find in the house!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
