Birthday Week, part 1

Kabyn and Alaythia Birthday Week 2013 begins!  As is now the third year in a row, the school apple-picking trip starts it off:

Then it was time for Kabyn birthday dinner.  Lucky for him, it was dinner swap night, and Keren made us a fun meal of taco fixings — everyone could make what they wanted!  Authenic tacos for birthday man, taco salad for me, carefully crafted cheese-tomato-tortilla pie for Alaythia, or a mix of highchair tray fixins for Cos!

I made an apple crisp for Kabyn, but we were too full to eat it!  It made a tasty breakfast the next day.

Then it was time to make cupcakes.  The free of everything cupcakes, baking:

The not free of everything cupcakes, preparing to be frozen for a few days:

Then into town Grandma Bibi Smith came, and we got a birthday date!

Then it was time… Alaythia birthday party prep.  More thanks to Keren for helping, and it was all beautiful!

Hullabaloo (Cosette’s strategy: stand on one pad and just don’t move!  Sooner or later it will be the winning one…)
