Super Birthday Bash!



I decided to go with super hero...

because he is big and strong...

and capes are fun...

but mostly the big and strong bit...

I made the invites... and then ended up emailing them because I am so disorganized/ behind/ life got crazy...

still... super cute!
As was the birthday boy... Super Ryder was Super Cute...



Not only were the invites and the birthday boy super cute...

but the cake wasn't half bad either...



My friend Cristi makes cakes...and she makes some darn good ones...

She let me help make a mess in her kitchen for this one. She taught me how to make fondant and how to color it...and how to build awesome arm muscles while kneading it...

I might have decorated it with her...but she did all the baking... and it was SUPER tasty!!

And with all this sugar laying about, it was SUPER hard for some of us to keep our fingers to ourselves... and out of the icing... and M&M's... and brownies... and cookies...

poor kid.



as well as an abundance of sugar and calories, we had....

SUPER cute Super hero capes...


The boys were a little unsure what to do at first,


but Ryder took up the Super hero gig happily...


Rigg graciously let his cape be passed around and shared with all the other guests... Maybe it is a role that some are born for (Ryder) and some grow into (Rigg)

Even though Ryder started out happy and delighted with the chaos that is a 1 year olds birthday party...
he quickly became clingy and wanted to be held...

and maybe, taking his hero gig a bit too seriously, he might have thought the cupcake was kryptonite...





After some very over the top faces... we removed the dangerous kryptonite cupcake.
 (which he did pause to nibble from in the midst of his small fit)

at the end of the night, he was back to his pleasant and happy self...

and maybe back to fighting crime...


you never know whith those Super Heros...

WONDERFUL PICTURES!!!
Especially the one where the two brothers are together - the elder - thoughtful and contained, the younger - hot and unruly.

My favorite part of this is how there is absolutely nothing healthy on that table.
