1st Birthday

May 28, 2008

The big day finally arrived; Duncan and Owen’s first birthday party! (Click on the photos for larger views.)

Birthday Cupcakes

The Birthday Cupcakes. My mom made the boys cupcakes from the same recipe she made my first birthday cake from now almost 30 years ago. (30 years tomorrow, yikes!) It’s a spice cake with raisins, whole wheat, and honey for sweetener and cream cheese icing sweetened with fruit juice.

The Birthday Boys

Duncan decided to see what this thing was, while Owen wasn’t so sure he’d like it. Owen ended up not liking the texture of the icing.

Owen finally decided he liked it after all. The cake part, that is.

    Happy birthday to you all! What sweet pictures.
    Yeah, someone else who has three family birthdays all within days of each other…and a holiday thrown in for good measure!

    Looks like you all had a great time–wish we could have been there.

    Hope to see you guys again soon.

    What fun! I’m enjoying catching up on your blog. Can’t believe these little cuties are a year old!

    Could you share the cupcake recipe? I don’t know if I’ll be all healthy and good like that when E turns one, or if I’ll just let him have chocolate 🙂
