8/19/14: The following post is from the archives of a previous blog of mine. I’m posting it mostly because some of the Ice Cream Cone party pictures have been pinned a bunch of times and I’d rather have that traffic reroute here. 🙂

This past weekend I flew home to help host my sister’s baby shower. The weekend before was C’s first birthday. I already posted some pictures on facebook, however I’m going to post some here too.
First, C’s Birthday. It was an “ice cream cone” theme:
I tried the frozen balloon trick I saw on pinterest. It didn’t really work for me. But it looked fun! Notice the yellow one that’s popped in the bottom bucket and how it left a frozen egg shape. Oh – and there were cokes and water in there too, not just alcohol! 🙂
Ice cream rice krispie treats.
I DID make this cake. The ice cream is cake balls. Other than my awful cake writing, this actually turned out pretty nice, I thought!
And of course, the cake smash! (KP has a bandana on because he’d been grilling and sweating)
C’s been learning a tiny bit of sign language and here she is doing the “all done” sign. It was super cute!
Next, the baby shower I threw for my younger sister. It was a “Rain Shower” theme. 🙂
I could not get these ducks to float sitting up! But I thought it was funny, so I just left them in the punch anyway.
I did not make this cake. The roommate of the other girl hosting the shower did. It’s pretty awesome though!
