Calvin's Birthday Party

We celebrated Calvin's birthday by having both Will's and my family over. I'm not sure who was more excited, me or him. Jill and I made Calvin his own special cake, which he thoroughly destroyed and Calvin got really spoiled, we all felt really blessed and so thankful for everyone's gifts and the love we felt.


And may I just add, laying out many photos on blogger sucks! Whose with me?!

The cowboy is so dang cute is his diaper. What a fun day! And the cake...I LOVE IT! I have been thinking of making Maren's. Where did you get the recipe?

It's just a good old-fashioned box mix. It's me we are talking about (and cooking is not my forte). I just bought some mini cake pans from Micheals, so it actually has 3layers. Then its coated in just a regular homemade buttercream frosting, and the dots are just fondant, which is super easy to work with!
