I did NOT decide to have the triplets first birthday party at our church because I did NOT want to explain what terrible smell is coming from our basement. You see....our washing machine is NOT backing up into our utility sink. We do NOT have to have roto-rooter come out and snake the drain, nope....not in our perfectly perfect world!!!! Not ME! :) Hey, at least we don't need a new washing machine....right???? Or would that be a blessing in disguise.....
First we have little Delaney. Contrary to what you see in this picture, Miss Delaney was actually being dainty about things....compared to her little piglet triplet sister that is!!!!! That's my hand you see in the picture. I had not had a piece of cake yet.....I was NOT taking a little piece of cake to see what it tasted like!!! LOL. NOT ME!!!! (Man, I love cake.....guess it explains a lot!)
Next we have handsome Joel. Are you asking WHAT the HECK is wrong with his smash cake???? WELL...Joel is allergic to milk, in a severe way. I had to make him a special dairy free cake. While I was in the whole foods section at Wegman's I spotted "Dairy free" frosting. I grabbed it with out looking at the ingredients. On the DAY OF THE PARTY (NOT ME!) I look at the box and I realize that I am supposed to add butter or dairy free margarine. Margarine that I did not have. So, Joel got a cake that had no frosting. I did NOT feel terrible, and I did NOT feel even worse when Josh told me (glibly) that someday when he was watching home movies Joel would inevitably point out, "See...NO FROSTING! You DO love the girls more!!!!" Yea. Thanks Josh. Ha.
Addie completely, and utterly LOVED her cake. She dove right in and did not stop. I did NOT fall completely in love with her all over again when she had frosting up her nose, and in her hair. I did NOT regret saying to Josh, "No BIBS! Let them be messy....it's their birthday!"
**In Honor of my Triplets turning ONE, come BACK tomorrow! I will be giving away a wonderful baby prize! Win it for your own baby, or for a gift!**
Finally....I did NOT order WAYYYYYYYYYYY too much birthday cake....and I will NOT be eating it as a snack for days to come!!!!!!!!
