Wonder Pets PAR-tay!!!

This past weekend we had my little baby's birthday party! He will be turning two on Wednesday, so we had all of our family and our friends out to celebrate. The party went great, the food was awesome, and everyone had a great time. We are lucky that Wesley's family and mine all get along so great and all really like each other. It makes family get togethers much easier.

I am also so very blessed to have such an awesome mother! She came out on Friday and helped me clean the house and make food for the party. I couldn't have done it all with out her. I had so much to do, and the little boys don't make it very easy! They were running around the house crazy, while we were trying to clean and bake.

So here are some of the pics from the party!

This was the dessert bar, it was filled with all kind of yummy goodness! Everyone loved it, and as the guest were leaving I had empty sacks ready for them so they could fill them up with their favorite treats! I should have taken down the mirror and iron scroll above the table but it is so heavy I didn't want to mess with it.

This was Marak's birthday cake, made to look like the Wonder pet symbol. The bottom layer is chocolate cake with honey buttercream filling and chocolate frosting. The top layer is one of my favorites bananna cake with the same filling and frosting combination. I made the same thing for Brody's Birthday cake too, it was so good I was wanting more!

These were one of the desserts on the dessert bar. This is what I call Boomer Sooner Whoopie Pies. They are so delish! It is red velvet cookies with cream cheese frosting.....YUM!

And of course it's not a party with out cake balls. These were a mix of strawberry cake and red velvet cake. Everyone loved them, they were gone pretty fast!

And what's a party with out jelly beans and gummy bears? I bought way too much candy, but it filled up the jars and it looked really pretty....and that's all that really matters at a birthday party! The little wonder pet symbols on the ribbon, I made myself out of punch dots and then I free handed the W.
This is just peeps on a stick. It was so easy and so fast to make. I got the idea online, luckily Marak's birthday is right around Easter...otherwise it would have been impossible to find peeps!
So glad the dessert bar was a hit, and we didn't end up with too much food!

Marak had a great time at the party, he loved all of his toys! He even started to cry when it was time to sing happy birthday because he didn't want to stop playing with his toys! And after the party Wesley's mom was sweet enough to take the boys for the night. So Wes and I cleaned up the house (it took me 4 hours to clean up just the toy room!), and then went out for dinner, and picked up a bottle of wine and came home and watched our shows in the wonderful peace and quiet! It was fantastic!
