Two Birthdays.....Twice the Fun

In between the yucky stomach bug our family had and the double yucky, kicking my butt cold that my family now has, we celebrated some birthdays - my oldest and youngest. It was touch and go for a bit and I was holding my breath - I was afraid it wasn't going to happen as my husband was sick the day before, but he pulled through and we had a great time with family and friends.
My oldest daughter turned 13 on January 19th-wow! 13......hard to believe.
She doesn't really like cake and cupcakes-she's not a frosting person
(and yes, she really is my child!)
I just happened to see a truly wonderful recipe for candy pizza and she loved the idea so we ran with it!!

It was really easy to make and very, very yummy!! I was afraid it was going to be too sweet, but it wasn't. It was a huge hit, everyone loved it, wanted a piece and wanted the recipe.

We went with cupcakes for my son-very easy..... especially since my mom made them! He was not sure at all about all the singing and candle lighting-I don't think he knew what hit him when the whole room started singing to him. No blowing out the candle for this boy-guess when we practiced we should have really used a lit candle.

He was a bit tentative with his cupcake at first......

but quickly realized how wonderful the whole birthday thing really is!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I am suffering with that cold that almost kills you right now. And my son has a birthday in less than a week.

What a fun cake! I like that idea. I'm convinced that as long as the birthday kid is happy, it doesn't matter what you whip up!

My oldest turned 13 on the 23rd of January! *sigh* Why must they grow?

What's this you say 13? So you can't stop it, they really grow up? Bummer...that candy pizza though, that looks like it would be a hit in my house!

You've been busy with birthdays I'd say! I love the candy pizza idea! My husband doesn't like the cake & frosting either. Crazy! ;)
