Birthday Week

We celebrated Ty's third birthday party this past week and it definitely was a week of festivities. The week started of with the arrival of Grandma.  Grandma and I immediately went out to purchase timbits for cheater cake pops.  Grandma also purchased Ty a donut while at Tim Horton's.  Grandma did not purchase Kylie donuts when Kylie was little.
Marc and I started work on the cake pops for the party.  I must admit I was a little skeptical of Marc's double dipped white chocolate and dark chocolate cake pops but they were delicious!
Ty had his church friends over to celebrate his birthday and they demolished the first round of cake pops.

On Saturday Ty had some other little friends over to celebrate again.  Marc and I did a monster truck cake this year.  I have kept the green theme going, since Ty's birthday is on St. Paddy's.  We will see how long this tradition lasts. :)

Starting out:
Marc is the cake assembler and I am the cake icer.  We work well as a team. 

2013 Cake:
2012 and 2011

What better way to wait for your guests to arrive than with a basket ride with Grandma.
The Spread:

Me and my boys.  I can't believe Ty is 3 and Zeke is almost 1!!!

For the record, 3 year old parties are a little crazy.  Especially the present opening.  Hands, tissue paper and chaos everywhere.  ;) Ty loved it all!  As soon as the party was over, he asked for his birthday party again. 

The two days after his party Ty opened more presents from family and friends each day.  We also ate birthday cake again and blew out the candles.  This is the first year that Ty is really cognizant of his birthday and he very much enjoyed all aspects of the celebration.  Each time we brought out the birthday cake we had to put the candles on and sing.  As you can see it was a big cake, so we did a lot of singing!

Grandma had a very fun week with her boys and was super helpful while I was getting stuff done!  See you soon!
