Birthday Pictures!

This is a picture of a grocery store bakery cake. I picked it up yesterday.

It doesn't look that way anymore. X-man totally demolished it! Here's what it looked like after his one-year pictures...

Interestingly enough, X-man never put any of the cake or icing in his mouth! He'll put morter that's fallen off our stone fireplace in his mouth, but not yummy cake. Goof ball!

We got some great pictures and spent a little more than we probably should have. But you only turn one once, right? It was a special occasion.

The icing stained pretty badly and TC and I both got it on our clothes. But, it washed right off (so the church nursery people won't think we're beating X-man) and I used my mom-in-law's special stain-remover-stuff (I'll have to post that recipe tomorrow) and it completely out of the clothes!

And after all of that funness, I got my Smashbox freebie at Ulta!

WOW. That's the right way to demolish a cake!

Happy Birthday little one!

You actually took his one year old pics with smashed up cake??
That's AWESOME!!
Fantastic idea, for real! Wish I'd thought of that. I'm such a picture whore.

I'm all teary eyed just thinking that little boy is almost a year old!

It feels like yesterday we were discussing how you were "going to go any minute" and soon you were back home! LOL!!

I can't wait to see his birthday pics!:)

That is a great picture!!! I love the icing smeared everywhere!

Maddie wasn't nearly as crazy about cake as I thought she'd be. But give her a green pea or something with tomato sauce and she goes wild. :)
