Party On

We survived another birthday party with 12 boys and Ellie running loose around the house. Here's just a few memorable moments.

Stevie and Ellie racing to eat donuts.

Present vultures.

Hallelujah! The cake survived until the family party.

Cute kid with cute cake. Wait for it...

Wait for it...

So I had a friend call me up a week or two ago and she wanted a Yoda cake for her son's birthday but didn't know how to go about it. If she'd contacted me a bit earlier than 2 days before the event, I would have tried to come up with a way to do 3D. As it turned out, we only had time to do this one, but I thought it turned out really fun. I did make her do most of the frosting and she even drew Yoda (she's an artist so I didn't dare draw anything for her) but I helped walk her through it and it was a success!

This one I have been planning a bit longer. I thought for sure it was within my realm of possibility but wasn't sure how it would go until it was finished. I had so much fun playing with the fondant that I'm sure it will be my new favorite medium. Now to see if it can stand until Sunday night.

What The Hell

Do you ever get the feeling that someone has taken you and all those you care about and thrown you into a giant toilet ... and then flushed it?

At first you think, this isn't so bad, it's just like a big swirling swimming pool that's a bit stinky. It's only a little wet and kinda dizzying. Then after a while it gets a bit rougher and the jostling becomes much more severe. Now your soaking and getting quite uncomfortable. Before you know it, you and everyone you care for, are swirling uncontrollably towards a putrid black hole that has no way out and leads to a vast dark abyss of nothingness.

I think some famous author described hell in a similar fashion. I prefer the toilet analogy, it's apt.

Baby Mozart

The best part is how she stops to turn the pages.
These pictures reminded me of one of my favorite movie quotes. 10 points to the person who can identify it (see side quote).
