Birthday photos finally!

I planned and planned and planned Coen's big birthday party and then... I didn't take a single photo. Grandma Cupcake came through and sent these along today.

We went with a construction theme and had fun with it. When guests arrived they were directed to grab their hat, tool belt, construction machine and get to work!

Ignore the hideous cupcakes. I had a Groupon and the lady tried to put construction cones on them... We decided they looked like a snowman's nose. We also had cups of dirt (chocolate pudding with cookie crumbs and a gummy worm) and stoplights (cream cheese on a crescent with red, yellow and green bell peppers shaped light a stoplight).

We didn't get a photo, but Chris did a great job with caution tape and saw horses out front. A few guests honestly thought that we were having some sort of work done outside. And of course, we had a "honey bucket" sign on the bathroom door.

I went out of my comfort zone and made the cake myself.

Our little party guests included: Henry Woodruff, Henry and Elliot Beagle, Will Bonner, Breyden Ruse, and Saiyna Gosalias (with all the craziness, it seems like there were more kids than that...)
