It was the Wee one's Bday party this weekend, and much preparation went into ensuring it was up to her expectations...
Elegant cakes, deluctable dips and an excellent spread of tasty treats prepared by me really brought the party together.. the oustanding decorations were tastefully displayed in a ccoreagraphed visual symphony, impressing the most critical of 3 year olds... OK fine.. It was more m'lady then me.. but I helped! I blowed up some baloonses and whatnot..
The small child thoroughly enjoyed herself and landed a pretty sweet stash this past sunday, dolls and ponies, dresses and appliances, shoes and swimming wear to list a few. Books and bears, crayons and clips, stickers and slippers and even some clothes.
She crashed pretty hard after the big day of partying and so did the 3 year old. :)
Finally got most of the reno's done.. The trim is up, just have to fill in the huge messups with glue stuff and then paint! The last wall is almost done.. needs primed and painted and then I can sit back and.. decide what to fix next.. Quite happy with the mostly-finished results.
Sunday morning, I'm at the balloon store with the small child, waiting in line to get some baloons for her party. Strangly busy for sunday at 11am but I guess lots of kids were born in october or something.. The lady in front of us was having a rather extravegant boquet made up and when finished the 'baloon lady' (for lack of a better name) asked if she was done 'hmm' says the customer. So my child turns around and says in her 'quiet voice' -which is slightly less than a dull roar in these situations- 'Daddy, the lady said huh and she was supposed to say pardon me!' So of course the lady turns red and apologizes, 'Oh no.. its ok ma'am..' ' Good manners honey!'
Hmm.. looks like it might be slow today.. perhaps I'll have time to tell the 'real' story of what I did this weekend.....
