Too pooped to party !

Oh my goodness, we've had birthday mania insania here at the Ririe house. Mia's was on the 21st and Bash's on the 25th, so I told John let's just get them both out of the way in one weekend so that we don't prolong it all month long. So, we did, and I'm happy to report, they were both great turnouts, despite a ton of setting up, cleaning up and work. But, we had plenty of help with my mom here so thanks mom! I owe you big. Mia had a Wizard of Oz them tea party, and Bash had a Michael Jackson theme dance party.

Bash's Michael Jackson Dance Contest Party- They had pizza, cake, and about 40 dance offs.
This was my attempt to make a Michael Jackson cake, I made a cookie cake them shaped the jacket, then instead of icing, which I hate too much of, I covered it in Fruit Roll ups, which everyone loves, then they just peeled it off of their slice and enjoyed both, I made the glove and lined the jacket with glitter sparkle sprinkles and gel.
Happy 9th
