My Triplets Turned 6!!

Happy Saturday!! 

What a busy, busy start to the school year!  We’ve been in school for 2 1/2 weeks already and I still haven’t started my “back to school” teacher gifts!!!  I did, however, manage to whip out 3 birthday cards for our triplets.  They informed me a couple days before their birthday that it’s NOT OK for their birthday cards to be late!  Haha!  Well, they weren’t late!!

One thing I decided to do to make things easier for me and more fun for the kids, is to let them decorate their own cakes.  They picked out a shaped Wilton cake pan of their choice.  Once they were baked and cooled, my sister and I outlined the basic designs on the cakes in icing and the kids filled in the rest.  They did AWESOME!!!  I may have chefs in the making!!  Check out these cakes…

Didn’t they do great?!  You can’t really tell from these pics, but in spots the frosting was globbed on SO thick!  Funny 😉

So, going along with their cake themes, I made cards to coordinate (not by color though!).  I’ll show you pics of their cakes and cards here quick, then come back (hopefully tomorrow) with better card pictures and details.
