MIA and 2 Birthday Celebrations

It's been so long since I've posted anything or even just been on any kinda social media related to blogging. Things have been busy.... well there always busy and chaotic but even more so lately. I'm sure you all can relate : )

Between the boys, school stuff, sickness,  regular everyday chores and errands, holidays, birthdays ext. I've just hadn't had time or energy to post anything. I have missed it though. Things are still busy and the holidays aren't over yet but I hope to get back into posting more often at least a couple times a week.

On another note both of my older boys have celebrated there birthdays well the actual day anyway they both fell on school days this year. We still have to do the whole fun weekend stuff with them.

I just can't believe how quick time has gone by! I know I say that all the time but I really can't. It seems like not so long ago I had them and they were toddlers. Know here they are 10 and 8 were already in double digits how crazy is that!

I don't know if I mentioned this before or not but the boys birthdays are only 5 days apart. It's kinda crazy having 2 December birthdays 5 days apart and so close to Christmas. I kinda feel bad for them they have to wait all year and then bam it's there birthday and Christmas all at the same time.

So since there birthdays fell on school days I tried to make it as special as possible. They had a more special breakfast (not just cereal). I made homemade waffles and stuck candles in them and we sung happy birthday.

They get to bring in a class treat on there birthday but it has to be store bought. They both decided on vanilla long John donuts with Christmas sprinkles. So we brought those in when I dropped them off at school.

 I also let them pick what they wanted for lunch and then me and little man brought them lunch (one picked culvers and the other picked taco bell) and we sat and had lunch with them at school.

I made them both there birthday cakes like I do almost every year. One wanted angry birds the other wanted batman and spiderman. I only had from the time the boys went to school and got home to make there cakes. And that's including bringing them lunch and of course taking care of little man. It was a little challenging and there not the best looking cakes but the boys loved them and appreciated them so that's all that matters : ) I  decorated the kitchen and had there cakes done by the time they got home from school.

They both decided this year that they didn't want to be surprised with presents. They wanted to pick them out there self so when they got home I  asked them were they wanted to go and they picked walmart. They both had a set budget but could pick out whatever they wanted with in there budget. We had dinner again they got to choose what they wanted and then of course cake and ice cream.

Sorry this is a really long post! Here are some pictures from there birthdays : )


  1. WOW Great Job Nicole. Those cakes are amazing! I can't believe you were able to make them BOTH in one day. You should sell them things. :) They are really awesome. You said they aren't the best lookin cakes, I think they look WAY better than the sheetcakes from the grocery store. Awesome job.

    They looked like they had nice birthdays :) & Soooo glad to see you back! Missed ya lots :)


    1. Thanks Ila : ) I actually didn't make them both on the same day. I made them on the day of the boys birthdays I'm not that good lol : ) Thanks I really missed blogging and keeping up with everyone to : )

  2. AWESOME cakes! I think I'm going to get my toddler one of those pretty princess cakes. She's looked at them for over a year every time we go to Safeway.

    1. Thank you! I'm sure she would love it :)

  3. Beautiful cakes! I bet they are also delicious.
