Birthday Season

with 23 comments

Yesterday was my little boy’s ninth birthday. Happy Birthday Evan!!! Tomorrrow is my sister’s. Happy Birthday Sister!!! Since Evan was born he has shared his birthday parties with my littlest sister (or rather she has shared hers with him) since their birthdays fall only two days apart. Right here at the end of February, birthday season is in full swing and we all celebrate like crazy.

Evan started his day with birthday pancakes (sprinkles, sprinkles, sprinkles, and melted frosting in place of the syrup), topped with trick candles.

Then we read birthday cards…

Opened birthday legos…

And ogled birthday cake (this birthday cake road suffered an earthquake on its hour long car ride). We all had our fill of mini make your own pizzas, cool and creamy pasta salad, and buttercream frosting. We sang the birthday song and laughed the birthday laughs and just plain old enjoyed each others birthday company.

The birthday boy and girl blew out the birthday candles (look how cute my Super Mommy is in the background blowing the candles out, too), and we called it a Happy BirthDay.

Birthday Buttercream Frosting


2 sticks of butter, softened

3 cups of confectioners sugar, sifted

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons heavy cream (more if needed to get frosting to desired consistency)

To Make

Beat together butter and confectioners sugar for 3 minutes at a medium speed. Then beat in the vanilla and the heavy cream. Whip the ingredients on medium for another minute and then high for about 30 seconds. Add more cream if your frosting needs to be more creamy.

    • Thank you! It was a pretty good bit of work, but loads of fun. And gave me a good excuse to unwind with a couple nice glasses of wine.
