Colten is turning 1!

Colten isn't 1 yet, but he will be soon, while I was in Oregon visiting family we had a little 1st birthday party for Colten and his cousin Sophia who is a few weeks older than him.
We had the idea of doing a Thing 1 and Thing 2 birthday party.
Here are the little ones, I made the hats and Sophia's leggings, they were so hard to make but turned out really cute! Even though Colten wouldn't keep his hat on.
We had lots of good friends and family there to celebrate with us.
Sophia is so adorable!
Here is the cake I made for the party, its a fish bowl with the fish from Dr. Seuss (if you couldnt tell) This cake gave me a big fight the fish broke in half the day of the party and I had to remake it that day. My sister did the piping for me, I don't do much piping so I try to avoid it (I don't have tips...I guess I need to get some and practice).
The fish bowl was cake I layered 1 8 inch cake on the bottom then took two 8 inch cakes cut off part of it and used the two bigger then half cakes next to each other for the next layer and repeated the next layer the same way making sure the over hang wasn't to much so it wouldn't break. Topped with one more 8 inch cake, then carve to make it more bowl shape! This time I covered the finished carved and crumb coated cake with butter cream, to me  it tastes better.
The fish is rice crispy treats molded and then frosted and covered with fondant.
Oh cute babies!
Naughty Colten taking the hat off!
Lots of yummy food!
Lots of babies crawling around!
Yummy cake!
There is my silly Colten, I love this face he makes all the time!

The babies liked the cake too!
"Yum thanks mom :)"
Sam really enjoyed himself too!!
