Happy 3rd Birthday to my twins!!!

A couple of weekends ago, my family and I celebrated a very special third birthday - our twins' Javier Stanley and Carlyle Micah.  We partied it up at our house Cars styles!

Each year our boys have their birthdays, we take the time to watch this video I made for them.  It's a nice reminder of where they began, and how much they've grown wonderfully since then.  It's also a great testament to our awesome God, who answers prayers and is a miracle worker!  I cry every time I watch this because it brings back very challenging memories during a very surreal time of our lives.  I smile, too, because it is also a reminder of the great joy we experienced throughout this extraordinary journey.

So, without further ado, here are some highlights from their third birthday!  Enjoy!!

The dessert table with all its handmade decor and edible goodies.

Thanks to my sister-in-law Gaile for helping me set this up.  I was running outta time!!

Best buds Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater
Now I experienced a bit of grief with this cake.  I didn't plan on spending too long on it to be honest, until things turned to custard!  And I ended up having to strip the fondant off and start over.  Not really what you wanna do past midnight.  But I'm glad I did, because it looked a whole lot better after the strip.  Sure, it's a bit rough here and there, but overall I was pleased.  The fondant for Tow Mater, for some reason, was cracking and doing all sorts of weird stuff, but after I stepped back to take a look, I thought it looked quite cool with all its flaws.  Definitely suited Mater because he's supposed to be worn and rusty anyway.  Don't you just love it when things work out?!
Thanks to Andrea Sullivan for the inspiration.  Her version of this cake is amazing!

Some decor I made to add some colour to the party.

This is by the entrance, where guests take their party hats from.
I pixelated the mirror so you can't see me taking the photo, hehe.

Jubs copying Tow Mater lol

Now, we have very few family pics from the party, and not one of them are picture perfect (as in, not everyone's looking or smiling, hehe).  But in saying that, it's perfect for us, because they are candid moments of our family on a very special day.  
Family photo...hmmm...birthday boys are sooo sleepy here.  Javier had to be woken up from his sleep, poor thing.

Well, there you have it!  Hope you enjoyed my boys' birthday highlights!  See you back here tomorrow for more cakes!!
