Rowan's birthday

It is really difficult having a baby girl whose birthday is in December. Rowan turned one on December 12 so we had a little party just here at home with the girls.
I attempted making some cake pops ( but I couldn't find colored candy coating so I tried adding food coloring to just the white candy coating. Didn't quite work so well. It was a nightmare. I also couldn't find a fine tip decorating tip. See for yourself--they were awful and absolutely hideous.

I tried to make cupcakes, but that didn't go quite as well as I had hoped either.
Honestly, this took all the humility I had to post these pictures!

Singing happy birthday

Not quite sure if she really likes this much sweetness

Diggin' in!

Niev didn't mind that they were hideous.
Rowan has grown up so much lately. She is talking a bit more and really enjoying being mobile. She is our climber. If she can get her leg on it, she is climbing it. She has absolutely no fear. Her first words were "mom" and "dad", of course, but her next word was "Bonzer" (bon-ba). She loves her puppy and they are the best of friends. She is a really happy baby, but needs a regular schedule. We love her so much. Niev loves to play with her baby sister and Rowan really enjoys Niev chasing her. Happy birthday, Ronin!

I don't know what you're talking about. Those cupcakes are so cute!

I had the same problem with my cake pops, I learned you HAD to have the pre-colored candy melts and let the pops freeze for over an hour (not 10 min like she says on her blog). I bet they still tasted good! Doesn't that first year go by fast? Your girls are so cute by the way, love their big blue eyes and rosy round cheeks!
