Atticus’ Corgi Birthday Party

Atticus said he wanted a puppy party for his 3rd birthday. So I set out for Party City and found tons of fun Paw Patrol decorations.

Turns out Atticus was not a fan. He said he wanted a Kaiser party. Kaiser is our dog. Atticus wanted me to take the Paw Patrol stuff back. And as so many of us parents do, I succumbed to the pressure of my toddler terrorist. Kids, 1,933. Parents, 0.

To be specific, Atticus said he wanted a corgi halloween party. What does that even mean? Whatever it means, he was dead set on it.

So we had a corgi party.

With pupperoni pizza from Dion’s.


And lots of other fun snacks like Pupcorn, Chew Sticks, Pawtato Chips, and Corgi Butts Drive Me Nuts.

We drank toilet water.


And made sure to wipe our paws.


We pinned the tail on the corgi. Well we tried to.

And the kids adopted dogs.


Sometimes you can make things happen with a little help from Pinterest, Etsy, Amazon, Google, Photoshop, and stuff you have laying around the house.


A party wouldn’t be complete without some kind of fail.  We bought a corgi cookie cutter (say that five times fast) from Amazon.  The finished cookies looked possibly like sheep blobs.  Oh well, not every one is a winner.

Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us. It was paw-some!

Build A Boy


Cuteness ahead.  Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t, warn ya.


A lot goes into building a one year old.  Especially one as cute as our little godson Malachi.


We were invited to celebrate with this little guy last weekend!


As you can see, he is highly qualified to be an amazing one year old.


His mom, The Project Manager, and his dad, the Project Engineer, did a great job on the construction site.


Lots of sweet treats for a sweet boy.

The job site got a little crazy, but Foreman Malachi kepts his workers on the job.


And he really got down to business when it came to the all important task for eating his cake!
