Overall, the party was a success. Annalyn had a good time, and that’s what counts. The weather was less than cooperative but not disastrous (windy and cold, but not rainy). Most of the family – and a few friends who are like family – was there, and nobody tried to crash the party (like the people who attempted to “steal” our [reserved] shelter two years ago). And, thanks to Smitty, the Veggie Tales cakes and decorations (even the ones we couldn’t put up because of the stupid wind) were adorable.
All in all, a great party!
This is what consumed MY weekend. How was yours??

Oh my, cutest birthday ever! I love the picture of the green frosting on her lips! Those cakes turned out awesome! We’re Veggie Tales fans in the Jackson house too! So glad your party was perfect!
Thanks, Nikki. We had cold wind and some profane graffiti on the picnic tables. But yes, I’ll take “perfect.” :) (And seriously, how cute is it to hear your kiddos singing along to VT songs?!?)
I am SO impressed by those cakes!! And I think the center pieces were genius! And so simple to do! Looks like a great party! And your daughter made a very cute birthday girl. I’m having a tea party b-day party this weekend for my soon to be 5 year old. I’ve been stressing about it all week! And it’s going to be pretty simple!
Thank you. I hope your 5-year-old’s party was wonderful!
I’m in awe of those cakes! So cute. You gotta love VeggieTales.
Everything is so cute. I love the centerpieces.
Thanks! It all came together at the last minute, but I loved it!
Adorable…the cake, your daughter, all of it!
My 2 yr old loves Veggie Tales – especially the “Where’s God when I’m Scared” one. He crawled into bed with me the other morning and kept saying over and over, “Don’t be afraid”. Finally I said, “Yes, Jesus tells us not to be afraid”. He looked at me like I had 2 heads and replied, “No…Bob says…Larry says”!! Well, yes they are the ones who say it in the book! I still chuckle every time I think about it!
Cute!! And thanks!
Oh how fun! Love it! Those cakes are awesome.
Thank you, Sarah!
Applause and cheers! Great job! I love the cakes. I think I am ready for our veggie tales party now I just have to wait a year for my sons birthday ;)
“The waiting is the hardest part…” :) I hope he still loves Veggie Tales in a year. I thought for sure we’d be having an Elmo party this year, but she kind of fell out of love with him several months ago!
Love the cakes! Great job decorating them!!
The cakes and decorations turned out so cute and festive! We have that radio flyer wagon, it’s great!
Thanks! I know we’re looking forward to lots of wagon rides!!
Those cakes are adorable! You guys did a great job with the party, it looks like it was wonderful. (And if it’s not weird to eat cakes that look like Bob and Larry, how could it be weird to eat their (non-faced) vegetable relations?)
Thank you! And…you’re totally right. It’s all just a little weird. :)
Looks like an awesome party! Great job on the cakes! BTW I’m stll laughing at the canabalistic veggie tray.
I know. So wrong, right?
Oh my gosh, how cute is that?! I love those cakes–makes me wish I had a little girl who would still appreciate those. And good for you serving veggies at a birthday party!
I also served fruit, and it was a big hit, too!
Thanks so much for sharing this with us. The centerpieces are a wonderful idea. I may have to use the idea for my sons birthday.
You’re welcome! I hope you have fun with your son’s party!
