The Party

We had a lot of fun celebrating Molly's birthday. The preparations for me started with her cake. I got the idea from here and here.
At this point it had to go into the freezer and we realized that my freezer wasn't big enough for the whole cake with cake plate! So we had to use 3 spatulas and move it to a plate! It was a bit scary, but it worked out!
Here it is.
Fun, huh?
I couldn't have done it without my MIL, Shelley! She was a big help not only with the cake but with dinner and everything else too. We were so glad she could take a break from helping the triplets to come!
Molly was really excited when we sang to her. At first she was trying to sing and then she realized that we were all singing to her! She even blew out both candles on her own!

We had a great group. All of my family was there plus Justin's parents, his brother Scott and wife Brooke and his brother Brad.
Molly was so spoiled by all the gifts! Thanks everyone!

And she loved giving her cousins hugs. This is Molly and Laney.

She had such a great time that yesterday she took a 4 hour nap (the day after her big party)! She would say I wanna party! I think she liked it! :)
