Throwback Thursday: DIY Cake Smash Session

I hadn’t intended to do a cake smash session with Keira, but the day after her Cupcake Themed First Birthday Party I still had the entire giant cupcake cake untouched because the guests had enjoyed one too many of the mini cupcakes before cake time.  At first I was upset the cake would be wasted, but then realized it was the perfect opportunity to grab a leftover tablecloth, relocate the birthday banner from my dining room to the fence and go outside for an impromptu cake smash session with my little girl.

Keira was more then happy to have her new puppy join in on the action.  We got Rumbull a couple weeks before Keira’s first birthday so he is still just wee in these photos.

And then it was time to clean-up:

It has only been a year, but it is hard to believe the difference in both my babies.

Photoshoots with the kids usually end up with both them and myself melting down, but I am always glad I took the effort when I look back on the moments I have captured.

A Welcome Basket for Doobie!

My sister and her husband spent Saturday travelling to their breeder to pick up their gorgeous new purebred white lab puppy.  They have wanted one for a couple years now and decided to finally take the plunge when they found out two of their favourite dogs were going to be bred.  I know it has been a long 8 weeks waiting for puppy to get big enough to pick up and I am so excited for them to finally have little Doobie home.

Isn’t he cute??

My sister has been great about giving my kids gifts and celebrating my growing family, so I wanted to do something special for her new little arrival.  You can never have too many toys and treats with a puppy so I found a variety of things for her and packaged them in a small basket.

Other puppy necessities in the basket besides the toys, treats and bones included rug cleaner, dog shampoo, paw wipes, pee pads, a Litey Leash and the bone shaped poo bag dispenser hanging off the side.

Welcome to puppy ownership!  Hopefully there aren’t too many restless nights, pee spots, or chewed items in your future.
