Happy 3rd Birthday Caden!!

Today is Caden's 3rd Birthday! I can't believe my baby is now 3, yes mom is going to hold it together :). I'm sorry baby it's not a big party this year but I'll make the most of what we got. My mom has offered to host the part at her house on the lake and she's doing the catering. Thankfully my mom is a rock star with food, now not always kid friendly but the adults sure will love it! HeHe.

I promise little man when mommy is back on her feet I'll get you the BEST birthday present! Much love little man.

Big brother and I made you a special treat for you to celebrate this special day and go with the beach theme!

MUCH LOVE little man!!!

So of course I found a recipe I liked and turned it into what I wanted for the theme :).

Nilla Sand Cups by Kraft Foods

prep time
15 min
total time
1 hr 15 min
8 servings, about 1/2 cup each

what you need

2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 qt. (4 cups) cold milk
32 NILLA Wafers, finely crushed
8 Worm-shaped chewy fruit snacks

make it

BEAT pudding mixes and milk with whisk 2 min. Let stand 5 min.

PLACE 1 Tbsp. wafer crumbs in bottom of each of 8 (6- to 7-oz.) paper or plastic cups; cover with layers of pudding and remaining crumbs.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour. Top with fruit snacks before serving.

ALEXIS NOTES: So as you can see I switched this to one bowl instead a cups. For the beach themes I used sugar added blue food coloring to make a water color. I then added the peach rings to look like life preservers. Then I added some flamingos and paper umbrellas. I also did a batch and a half to make a big bowl for the party. YUMMY
