Birthday Potty

Since it has taken me a day and a half to download these pictures, I am not going to even try to explain them all.

On Saturday we had Mark's family and my mom over for dinner to celebrate Cami's birthday. When everyone got out here, Grant was sooo excited for the potty. Everyone kept telling him to go use the bathroom, and it took me a minute to figure out that he was saying party!!
On my third trip to the local gas station (I live 20 miles out of town), to woman finally asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was getting things for my daughters cake, and I hated that I felt like everything needed to be perfect. She was really sweet and told me that's how you can spot a good mom, they want those things to be great for the kids. So, what was the story on the cake??

The Maroney's are NOT cake people. But I like that you personalize cakes. So with that, I decided MONTHS ago that I would make Cami a kitty cat cake. I made the cake the night before, and didn't even bother checking to see if it was done when I pulled it out. I put in on the cooling rack, and the next day, around noon, I figured out that the cake hadn't cooked all the way through!! I was devastated!! I had made a chocolate silk pie earlier and used regular sugar, and it was grainy... WHAT WAS I GOING TO DO WITH A NOT COOKED CAKE??!! I am not going to lie, I pouted and was really upset. So that prompted a trip to the little gas station for a new cake mix. Then the frosting I had used came out weird, so I had to go back for candy to put on it... It was horrible, and I wanted to cry.

Cami had a great time. This was the dirtiest she got!! Grant basically bathed in his 1st cake... Guess that is the difference with boys and girls.

It was a great night, but I can wait for the next birthday!!
