2 + 4

Two years ago on Carolin's birthday, Zachary was born. So yesterday they turned 2 + 4. At this age it's kind of handy. We have a 2 for 1 birthday party. When they get to school it could become kind of tricky.

I didn't have a lot of time to make things for their birthday. (I had big plans.) I did manage to get their shirts finished. Super easy and so fun!

I also make a pillowcase for Carolin but I didn't get a photo. She loves it!

A two-sided cake. As I mentioned on a Food Friday post a while back, I am not much of a cake decorator. This is about as fancy as I get.

And, just in case you are curious about it, their due dates were 20 days apart. Carolin was 11 days late and Zachary was 9 days early. Carolin was 9 lbs, 8 oz, Zachary was 6 lbs 9 oz. Night and day difference!

  8. Love the shirts and the cake looks good too. Smart idea to use one cake but decorate the 2 halves differently. I hope that they had a happy birthday!

  9. I showed the car side to my son and he liked it so I used your idea and put a plastic Lightening McQueen on top of his cake. Apparently it wasn't up to snuff because I didn't put a sign like yours. I didn't even remember the sign, but sure enough there it is! Next year I told him. ;)
