LITTLE People star Audrey Roloff has shared photos from her son Bode’s third birthday party.
Audrey, 31, and her husband Jeremy, 32, threw their middle child an extravagant birthday party this weekend.
On Sunday, the mom-of-three posted photos and videos to her Instagram Stories of the cow-themed celebration.
The couple pulled out all the stops for their son’s big day, even splurging on a cupcake topper designed to look like a cow.
Audrey shared a clip of the treat in the box before handing them out to party guests.
She captioned the video, “Cow cupcakes as requested by our guy.”
The former TLC star also posted an adorable moment between Bode and his 5-year-old sister, Ember.
In this one, the birthday boy was playing with one of his presents, surrounded by black and white balloons.
Ember, wearing white pajamas with cherries on them, was singing softly into her brother’s ear.
Although the act can barely be heard in the video, Audrey explained in her caption, “Ember is singing happy birthday in her ear.”

Another photo showed Bode enjoying his new toy with the family’s huge Christmas tree lit up behind him.
Audrey explained the cow-themed extravaganza in the following snap, claiming the 3-year-old had asked for it multiple times.
She shared a photo of Body sitting under a giant black and white balloon arch and a gold number three balloon.
Beside him was his cupcake cake and a sign that read, “Holy cow Bode is three.”
She explained in her caption below, “He specifically asked for a cow birthday about 6 months ago and stuck to it.
“I thought it was one of those random things that he would change his mind about, but every time [sic] I asked before her birthday [sic] what kind of party he wanted, he said “cow’s birthday”. no farm, no western… just cow.”
Audrey and Jeremy also committed to the theme and wore cow onesies to the party.
Many slides showed the couple dressed in their costumes while posing with their son.
Audrey highlighted how hard the parents worked on the special day at one point, writing: ‘A moment of appreciation for the balloon arch mum and dad stayed up until 1am after dark appointment.”
She also posted a video of Bode’s friends singing “Happy Birthday” to her before blowing out her candles.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed a startling detail in the clip related to Jeremy’s twin brother, Zach, 32, and his wife, Tori, 31.
Zach and Tori’s two eldest children, Jackson, five, and Lilah, two, were spotted at the event, despite the years-long feud between them, Jeremy and Audrey.
While Bode blew out his candles, Lilah played in the background, and Jackson sat at the table with his cousin and friends.
LPBW fans were shocked by Zach and Tori’s attendance at the party, given the tension within the family.
“I think now it’s clear that even though they’re not best friends or anything, they don’t hide their kids from their cousins… Basically, they seem to act like adults to about things if they don’t get along,” a fan wrote in an online thread.
“The kids still saw each other once in a while, but I feel like now the parents seem to be a lot friendlier with each other. Tori and Audrey have been hanging out at least twice with mutual friends and none child is involved, and they also tagged themselves quite a bit.
“For some reason it also feels like it was done to upset Matt and shut him out,” said another, referring to Roloff patriarch Matt, 60.
“It’s nothing new. Cousins have almost always been on each other’s birthdays, with the exception of illness, even at the height of people speculating some sort of feud between Tori and Audrey” , explained a third.
The sisters-in-law haven’t been on good terms in recent years, though they may have made amends for the sake of the children.
Last month, Tori and Zach brought their kids, including 7-month-old son Josiah, to Jeremy and Audrey’s $1.5 million farm in Oregon for a photoshoot.
The kids posed with Jeremy and Audrey’s three children: Ember, Bode and their one-year-old son, Radley.
Roloff’s youngest brother, Jacob, 25, and his wife, Isabel Rock, 26, also included their son, Matteo, one, in the photo of the cousins on the sofa.
Matriarch Amy, 60, was also at the photoshoot when Tori posted a photo of Jackson and Lilah with their grandmother.
Despite the blended family moment a few weeks earlier, fans weren’t convinced there was no more bad blood within the group.
Some have speculated that Audrey and Tori feuded again after noticing they witnessed the same events but never mentioned each other.
A person asked in a thread: “I find it super strange. Do they go and not recognize each other at all? It must be awkward and even sad for the children.”
Another person wrote: “Maybe all the people who say they don’t fight will wake up.”
A third claimed: ‘We only see snapshots of their lives, but I think it’s clear there are issues between the brothers and it’s the children who suffer.’
Jeremy and Zach were also at odds over Roloff Farms after their father put the property on the market.
The twins were each arguing over ownership of the farm, but neither of them agreed with Matt on a price.
Matt attempted to sell the farm for $4 million, but decided to turn his house into a short-term rental when it received little interest.
He hopes to sell the farm and retire to Arizona with his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, 55.
