Happy Birthday, Anjali!

Happy Birthday, Anjali!
Oh. My. Heavens. I have a three-year old. Weird. Anjali had her third birthday on Friday. After my concert (Men’s and Women’s Chorus) we went to Pirate Island and ordered a pizza, per her request. (She actually said “hot dog and pizza” but we told her she had to settle for one.) On Saturday… well, I’ll let the pictures tell the story. If you were in the area and couldn’t come, you totally missed out!
Anjali got a hold of my base while she was using the bathroom.

Just sitting on the toilet and patting base all over her face.

What a diva.


Toy Story Green Alien Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes, Cream Cheese Frosting (dyed both neon green and black,)

Rips for the ears cut into leaf shapes with my kitchen shears, Green Sour Straws,

Mentos for the eyes, and Americolor Gourmet Writing Pens for the pupils.

And here is the amazing announcement my husband did!

The Toy Story Goodies!
Alien Cupcakes, Green Alien Juice, Jessie Hats and Woody Stars, Hamm Pops
Three-layer cake with Butter, Red Velvet, and Chocolate layers – and a Jolly Rancher orbit ring.

(Oh, how I despised the latter.)

(Thank you, Ray and Pat, for the beautiful fruit arrangement!

It came at the perfect moment and was a big hit!)

Hamm pops from

Sorry, Bakerella, mine don’t look as great as yours.

Jessie Hats and Woody Sheriff Stars

(I used the food coloring pen to write “Sheriff.”)

Paper planes and streamers hung

We roasted Hot Dogs in the fireplace.

A group of the partiers in the Buzz Lightyear spaceship.

Kids with blindfolds + Mr. Potato Head.

Need I say more?

(Notice the caption; I thought it was a pretty good title.)

I set up a “mine” in the front coat closet.

Spraypainted rocks gold and let the kids go at it.

They LOVED it!

We also had a Buzz Spaceship pinata and a “Pass the Moonrock” game.

My cousin, Simon. Hamm Pop and Woody.

Life is good.

My friend, Joshua, playing with the kids in the leaves afterward.

The weather was perfect!

Wish I’d known that a month in advance or we would have had this party at the park.

Anjali LOVES her friend’s scooter.

Anjali is starting preschool this week.

Yikes! When did she grow up?

My extended family.

How I love each of you so much.

My grandfather and I.

I love you, Grandpa.
