We had a lion-themed birthday party for Benjamin on Saturday
Madeline was very excited to help me make these lion cupcakes. :)
I used a runner on the table that I bought at the ALERT hospital in Ethiopia, and a wood carved lion from the market.
I made a rare full-price retail purchase when I bought this lion shirt for the birthday boy to wear at his party. He had a diaper explosion not long after the party started, and he had to have a wardrobe change. I was determined to get a picture of him in it, though, before we changed his clothes. He was NOT cooperating. :)
Pizza and fruit was on the menu. We kept it simple. :)

The fire truck riding toy was a huge hit
Time to blow out the candles!
And time to eat cake! Here is the first bite...
Ooh! I think I like this stuff!
Oh yeah, I am seriously digging the cake thing.
