Every birthday needs a cupcake



Our middle son recently turned 8 years old. Time quickly passed since LAST YEAR when I wrote some "momma love" here for him on his 7th birthday....and now, I'm already writing about another birthday of his!

Kotah's 8th Birthday

We spent a classic summer day out at my Mom's house. She added the best touches for his long awaited little day.

I was simply captivated with the winning table my Mom created for Dakotah!
Because every adorable cupcake
should have it's own covered pedestal...

Her mocha chocolate homemade goodness...

8 candles on 1 cupcake...



We also made a visit out to the country store
for a game of pinball and an ice cream cone.

The Country Store was an old gas station
when the town was first founded
and sits alone as the only store for a handful of miles

Thank You Mom for highlighting our day with lots of COLOR!
Our hours spent at your home sweet home were summertime treasures!


coming up soon...
Dakotah's birthday party...here's a hint at what's to come:
Specialty Lil Boo bear, tree, cabin, and canoe crayons from etsy....
These are CRAYONS for the treat bags!
Can you guess his party theme?
One more tiny hint...Dakotah drew a story of his FAVORITE thing in the world to do! This is trucks, camp trailers, motorhomes, 4 wheelers, and each family member out in the Big Pine trees
(source: etsy)

I will be sharing all the party details soon...be prepared for a LONG post. {wink}

You have serious photography skills Lisa. Every picture of the boys amazed me. I especially love Kotah's genuine perma-smile! It is easy to see what a dream day he was having. Can you believe he is 8 already?

That cupcake was awesome. Happy Birthday to sweet Kotah from Mrs. Magpie!

I thought of you this weekend, Lisa. We had the world's most wonderful lemon and ginger cupcakes for my birthday. I have eaten and loved cupcakes my whole life, but that was the best I've ever eaten. EVUH! I wish we could figure out the recipe.

Can't wait to see the party. You always do such fun things!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Great party theme! I would love to know where you got the glass dome on your cake plate. I am looking for something exactly like that! Just found your blog by way of Just a Girl.

Gosh, I see where you inherited your party planning genes! That cupcake looks scrumptious.

Jenn Erickson said...

Lisa, what a wonderful party! Love the creative touches, especially the way the magnificent cupcake was given the royal touch by being served under the glass dome. Brilliant! I love those custom crayons too! So happy to have found you through Tickled Pink. Cheers! Jenn
