Aubrey's Birthday!

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Here are some pictures of Kyle and Aubrey's birthday party. It was a candyland theme. We put the Candyland game on the wall and then as a group moved one of the gingerbead pieces through the game. We stopped at each of the Candyland characters and played a game. Some of the games that we played were:
Gingerbread (7 feet tall) bean bag toss
Candycane fishing
Pin the lollypop on the sucker stick
We had everyone hold onto a sheet and we bounced small balls on the sheet
Keep the balloons in the air
Hershey kiss relay race
We got burger king crowns and had the kids decorate their crown with candy
Musical Gumdrops (we had big gumdrops on the floor. when the music stopped everyone had to get on a gumdrop. More than one person can be on a gumdrop at a time. A gumdrop was taken off the floor each round. By the end everyone had to all squish onto one gumdrop.

For Kyle's actual birthday on the 31st I made him a rocket cake. Darin usually does the cakes but he's busy with school this year so it's up to me. It's the first time that I've actually cut shapes out of a cake and then put it back together. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt to make a butterfly cake for Aubrey. We'll see how that ends up. Every butterfly cake that I've seen on the internet says to use round cake pans. Well we don't have round cake pans so I'm going to have to try to cut it out of a 9 x 13 pan. We'll see how that ends up.... I'm a little nervous!

We woke up the other day and had snow on the ground. Kyle and Aubrey each have their own shovels and they had a blast shoveling the snow. We'll see if they are still this excited to shovel snow at the end of March!
