Off to the Races...Kinda

So Jackson's birthday party will FINALLY happen tomorrow. We put it off because I was recovering from Dad's birthday & the trip to Kansas. Then we put it off because of the weather. But finally, tomorrow, he will get his birthday wish- a Hot Wheels party at Chuck E Cheese.

No, I'm not a huge fan of CECheese, but the child has been soooo patient. And they do have slightly better security than Incredible Pizza. That's not saying much since Incredible Pizza has NO security measures in place. I don't know how many kids I've seen carried out of there kicking and screaming. You never know if they're being kidnapped, or just need a nap. But I digress...

So today I picked up the last few items for the goodie bags. It was a great excuse to get out of the house. I think the babies needed out as badly as I did, so they tagged along.



It was so nice today, I didn't even bother with their coats when we left. (Although I do think their coats are adorable.)






And tonight, after I finally got everyone in bed, I finished Jackson's cake. I think it turned out pretty well.  Star cakes are super easy, but boy do they make my hands hurt. Now I know what Mom was talking about! Squeezing that bag 40 bazillion times (one for each little star) is a killer!



So what about you? Do you make your own cakes? What's the coolest cake you've ever seen (not on TV)? Ever made?

Love the cake! We went to CEC for Isaac's last birthday. Not my favorite place either, but the kids love it. Just had Isabella's party yesterday, I made her a Tinkerbell cake. However, my favorite cake to date was the twin's baby einstein cake.
