Party Part Two...All About the Cake

For part two of the birthday recap, let's focus on the cake.  I have to admit, this was the moment I was most excited about when planning for the party.  I mean, let's face it...Mommy has the biggest sweet tooth out there.  This was going to be the moment of truth...did the girls inherit their Mommy's love of all things sugary?  I was dying to find out!  

As I mentioned in the first birthday post, Amy Cakes made these darling smash cakes.  Like many other of the girls' belongings, the pink one was for Layla and the purple was for Jenna.    

To prepare for the chow-down, Layla and Jenna were pretty certain they needed to put on their birthday suits, but Mommy insisted the diapers stay on!  Right before taking these pictures, Jenna fell in the crack between the couch and the cushions, which gave us an idea.  Why not trap the babies in the couch to see if we can get them to wear the birthday hats that they wanted nothing to do with?  It didn't work.    

Layla is totally loving being serenaded as we all sing "Happy Birthday".  Jenna is not so sure what's gotten into all of us!

Now, for the moment of truth...make a wish, sweet babies (ahem...I mean toddlers)!


Layla: "Ooh, I think I like this."

Jenna: "I don't know, guys, this doesn't seem like a good decision."

Here Jen, let me help you.

Layla: "This stuff rocks!  You guys should try it!"

Layla: "Hey sis, do you get the feeling we're being watched?"

Jenna: "Yeah, but just keep eating.  Maybe they'll go away."

"Nope, they're still watching."

Layla: "I just need a little sip to help wash this down."

Jenna: "Alright, I think I'm getting the hang of this."

Jenna: "Oh man, it's so good...can't keep it coming fast enough!"

Jenna: "I just know these rolls are going to regret this later!"

Thanks for sharing, sweet Layla Jane!

Jenna: "I win!"

The could've been worse.  

You know it was a successful cake ceremony when baths come immediately after.  

Layla and Jenna definitely had their cake...

...and ate it too!
