Kids Birthday Celebrations

We had some serious birthday fun this month!  Four birthdays in nine days can get pretty crazy.
Thank goodness for Pinterest or i never would've come up with ideas for easy celebrating.  Check out here where I came up with some of these ideas.

My little guy loved his Dump Truck Cake.  Best of all you don't have to be perfect for this to look really cute. I personally thought the gummy worms were a nice touch : )
I don't know what the blue icing has to do with dirt or trucks, other than the fact that's what the Birthday Boy wanted on his cake.

Each of the kids got their own dump truck to shovel cake into and eat out of.

Everyone woke up to a decorated door on their birthday morning.  I also wrote a little birthday message to each child on their bathroom mirror.  

The kids loved making some really easy and cheap decorations to keep up for the month of September.  Crepe paper banners strung up in the dining room made every day feel special.

Can I get an "Amen"? I found this cute printable here.

The boys were more than thrilled with their cake.  Yes, there really is a whole cake under all that candy!

Yet another super cute, free printable from eighteen25.

We ate entirely too many treats between all the celebrations! (and loved every minute of it!)

I tried to simplify when I could.  I bought one big roll of plain paper and then assigned everyone a color ribbon and hand stamped their names on the packages. 

Super Mom I am not! I admit I breathed a sigh of relief when my daughter begged for a store-bought cake.
We had a blast and are just now coming off the sugar rush.  Just in time to gear up for Halloween!
