Birthday Weekend Fun

Wow!  We had such a busy, fantastic weekend!  So, to start off the festivities, Friday night I made homemade dog treats for party favors and pup cakes for the pups on their big day!  I made coconut dog treats (recipe provided by Melissa at Two Palm Beach Pups), that were cut into heart shapes and Honey Crunch pup cakes, topped with pink yogurt chip icing!  They came out better than I thought they would.

I wanted to share the Honey Crunch Recipe with you all!  It is amazing.....taste bland to us, but the pups devoured them!  

2 3/4 cups water
1/4 cup organic honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup granola (we went and got organic granola from New Seasons)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg, beaten slightly

Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Spray muffin tin with cooling spray (I just put little cupcake cups in the muffin pan).  Mix all wet ingredients thoroughly.  Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl.  Add wet to dry slowly, scraping well to make sure no dry mixture is left.  Pour into muffin tins.  Bake for 15-20 mins or until toothpick inserted into center comes out dry.  Store in a sealed container.  Makes around 12-14 pup cakes.

Yeahhhh....Saturday, the big day!  We gathered all the presents, pup cakes, decorations and last but not least us and the birthday pups and their brother and headed over to Kelli's (Owner/Designer Cody & Company Pet Products) house.  Kelli had an amazing setup when we got there - she had the people food set out - varying from cut up fruit, chips, veggies and dip!  2 tables outside waiting for people and pups to surround them and her yard freshly lawn mowed and looked so cute!  We brought all the stuff in from the car and started decorating.  I went and got all HK everything that I could (purchased at Party City)!

The girls were so spoiled.  They had tons of prezzies to go through.  I have to say Thank you to our friends who came and for the amazing gifts the pups received from you all!  Thank you Aubrey, Linda, Gary and their daughter Stephanie!  OMG and Linda brought all of her babies and the new puppies....they were so darling!  Thank you Kelli for hosting and to your family for enduring my doggy pawty addiction!  :-)
