Sickness seems to have settled itself in nicely here at our house. If I remember correctly, one or more of us has been sick for the past 2+ months. It's Emily's turn again...she has pink eye in both eyes and a throat infection. Of course, today was not a day we needed sickness here. It was R's 1st birthday party and I had to make the cake. The cakes were baked, just needed to be decorated. Something told me to not wait till nap time to start decorating so I started earlier. Good thing...Emily didn't want to nap. Her poor eyes were bothering her. I had the cake assembled but still needed to add the final touches but I took Emily to medemerge to get her checked out. Of course, we get there and she's Miss Personality and all amped up. :) Get home and Matt takes Jenna to R's party. Emily wanted to cuddle so it was extremely hard for me to finish the cake. I had to call Matt home so he could sit with her and I could finish the cake. I did it!!!
I was going for the Caterpillar from the "Baby Einstein" videos...I think I got it. :) This one was a tough one for me because I wanted it to be "textured" but I was also making my own buttercream and that would have taken me FOR.EV.ER! All worked out, Emily is on medicine and sleeping (hopefully through the night) and I am getting ready to get to bed myself....yes, at 9pm on a Saturday. Don't judge me!
