We did another Easter Egg hunt party for Emmy, I really am stuck on that theme. Probably because I'm pretty sure that is what my birthday party was every year and I remember loving it, so why not. Although this year we did it the day before our birthday which worked out much nicer, for me at least. I'm still trying to make this sharing my birthday thing work. I'm almost always rushing around trying to finish up getting ready for parties, but this time we actually were ready a little early, so I finally got some good pictures of the things I never remember to get pictures of until it's too late and things are already too crazy! Plus this was my first time trying out fondant and I had so much fun and was so proud of myself with how it turned out that I just had to share. Usually I try to be creative with my cakes and they never work quite like I had planned and they are falling apart by the time the party starts, so I was thrilled that this one totally worked and still was looking good by the time things got under way.
I've always intended on doing Easter cake pops cause they look so much fun on Bakerella's website, but this was my first time with the Easter ones. They were really fun for the first half, after that I was wishing I would've stuck with cupcakes.
Too bad, we don't have some of the best moments of the party with Aaron hopping around like the Easter bunny with his fluffy tail and mask leading them all to the Easter Egg hunt.
Our birthday started out right with Aaron making our favorite - french breakfast puffs.
Emmy had one request that day- go to the play place McDonalds.
I also got a favorite present, just not the physical thing yet so we don't have any pictures. Aaron got me a gift certificate for a new mountain bike! I'm so excited. I've got a couple months to find the perfect one.
I was nice enough to let her get the texas yee-ha and ride the saddle all by herself at Texas Roadhouse.
then she stuffed herself with ice cream after eating nothing
for dinner cause she was too full from treats all day. Whenever it is one of there birthdays we let them do makeovers and get fancy to go out on the town. Well this time Maile wanted to wear that pink dress which clearly doesn't fit her anymore, but she was being stubborn so Aaron came up with the brilliant idea of letting her wear her nightgown underneath with those lovely purple leopard shoes and her bright blue eye shadow. Usually I know they stand out and people are looking at us, but I'm okay with it when they are in just like a princess dress or something, but this time, I was having such a hard time being okay with it. I was so embarrased of Maile, it was almost like I was wearing it, I was so uncomfortable with her outift, it was making me crazy! I didn't want her adding any extra attention to herself, as soon as we got our booth, I hurried her into the corner and made Aaron sit next to her hoping to cover her up. Seriously, I can usually handle the dress ups, but this time was too much. It was so embarrasing and of course Maile couldn't be contained in her corner for too long. By the end of the dinner she was up talking to all the people around us and dancing and showing off her great outfit!
