Last week, Elliot turned one. ONE! Without my permission, she somehow transformed into this amazing little person. I love that kid, how could you not?
We had our family over for Sunday’s birthday festivities. The day started off right with balloons! The kids only popped one in the process.
Hold the phone, people. I actually BAKED something, a ducky smash cake for Elliot. The original duck was supposed to be 3D but after his head rolled off and the entire thing fell apart, I realized that I was supposed to use pound cake instead of the super moist yellow cake I got. Did you know that you can smash cake together like Play Doh to form whatever shape you want? Just slather it in icing and nobody will know.
Elliot was practicing her forlorn look here. She was pissed that I dragged her out of the pool to begin the festivities. It’s her party and she’ll cry if she wants to.
Graham was totally on his game, singing the most animated version of Happy Birthday that anyone has ever performed. He’d been practicing for weeks and did not disappoint.
Are you SURE I’m allowed to smash this? Ok…
Back off, beotches. This is MINE!
All in all, it was a great day. There were no meltdowns or tantrums and everyone had a good time.
The end result of the cake smashing wasn’t too terribly bad, especially compared to Graham’s results a year ago at his party. Take a look at the two pictures below and tell me which baby you think should be the HASAY mascot? The kid is a natural.
