Adam helping William put together his presents from Mommy and Daddy (but mostly Daddy) this morning. "We" also got him a green lego race car. Grown-up lego, not duplo. Yes, they assembled that one too.
My friend Columbia as the blue balloon fairy. She's awesome and crazy and awesomely crazy. I love her.
My nephew Hunter being transformed into Balloon Man, a super hero with powers involving weird balloon sounds and ninja-like reflexes. He was actually kind of annoyed that I took his picture when his costume "wasn't done yet".
The totally awesome car cake I made. It's actually a whole bunch of pieces of cake glued together with icing. My original plan was to put two cakes on top of each other one large and rectangular and one square, but the cakes were too thin so I piled them all on top of each other. When that didn't work all that well, I used my husband's male car-building instinct. When he had assembled the random cake pieces into a car-shape, I glued everything together with obscene amounts of delicious green icing.
Three seconds after the last guest left (and we'd opened all the extra loot bags) a late-coming guest arrived and we had another mini-party. When the party was over (again) William insisted on having a bath to play with his new toys. He got a bath toy fishing set from his friend Luke and some bath crayons from his friend Aedan. William is not much into colouring on paper lately but he seems to have no qualms about colouring on the bathroom wall. We had quite the rousing game of tic tac toe. Perhaps next time I'll trick him into practicing printing.
