Birthday Fun!

Evia will be 1 year old on the 16th, but we celebrated a few days early last Sunday. We planned for a hayride and though it was cold, the wind died down and Blaine pulled the kids around my dad's farm. The kids had a ball!

Even Blaine's brother Kyle, post op a few days from a hernia surgery, came along. I had almost forgotten he had surgery-it's amazing how fast people recover following laparoscopic surgery.

(ummmm...these pics are for all the Kyle fans out there.LOLOLOLOL)

This is a 'pumpkin tree' decoration I saw on Martha Stewart.com and used her scrap book paper and decorative brads-much cooler in real life

Cousin Keira's hair cracked me up---so cute!

I think Kolton ate all the pumpkin jello jigglers

Even Mandy and 4 week old Elliot made it

I begged my mom to make a rainbow cake that I had seen on MkMama's blog. By the time it arrived, it had turned into the leaning tower of pisa, and she begged me not to bring it out, and even bought a cake from VG's (shame on her-LOL), but it was the coolest cake ever, still, and tasted far better than ANYTHING you can buy. The kids loved it!

Evie definitely loved her cake.....................

And so did the other kids. I wish it could've been warmer and we could've just taken them outside and let them have a free for all with cake and frosting

I think it got a little much for the Birthday girl here!

Cousin Kyle-a big freshman now

This is a taste of the mass confusion when we get together--that is why I wanted to keep her party 'small'. Seven of the cousins are in this pic..can you find them?

Amazing!! That party looked like a dream come true for the kids and a nightmare for whoever had to clean afterwards! lol (usually mom!)

I LOVED the cake and thought your mom did a FANTASTIC job!!!
