The Sugar Baby's girlfriend turned 3 on Saturday. Just to ensure that everyone's weekend got entirely off-schedule with bouncing children on sugar highs, her parents (The Connections) made sure there was plenty-- and I mean plenty-- of goodies on hand. The party started at 9:30 a.m. with lots of juice, donuts and bagels (for the adults who pretended they weren't really scoping out the Boston Cream donuts).
The "theme," if you will, was based around this book: It's a very cute story about a girl who makes her own birthday cake using doughnuts, brownies, lollipops, berries and chocolate, but then realizes that it's a bit too much. In the end, she decides she likes the cake her mom's cake better, which has a delicate smattering of candy.
After reading the story, the kids got to decorate their own huge cupcakes (which, by the way, could have each easily fed four people) with M&M's, Mike & Ikes, gummy bears, gummy worms, jelly beans and Fruit Loops. Fun! The Sugar Baby loaded his up with gummy worms (he'd never seen them before) and M&Ms. Here's the creation of another little boy:
A good time was had by all and it only took the Sugar Baby two days to recover. This afternoon, as we were planting apple seeds, the Sugar Baby said, "Lilly had a great birthday." She certainly did. Hopefully she's recovered by now, too.
