Monday is my 27th Birthday.
Tuesday is Olivia’s 1st Birthday.
We decided to have a joint party Sunday. Tomorrow.
I have my house all ship shape and ready to go (minus a bit of cleaning in the downstairs tv room). I do however need to cut out and decorate our birthday cake. When Orlund saw I’d purchased the cake mix he asked me “you’re going to bake your own birthday cake?”. Yup. Didn’t want to ask anyone else to do it, and besides I wanted to bake Olivia’s birthday cake. I baked the cake yesterday, Gabe helped, so it’s cooled off and ready to be cut and decorated. I usually try icing the cake way to soon and it just runs off. I wont have that problem this time. I am planning to cut the cake into the shape of a 1. Then ice it with instant pudding, and decorate. The icing will be interesting as instead of mixing it with cool whip we opted out of buying a big tub, so I’m going to make the icing different. Wish me luck! I’ll need it! Icing a cake is always very VERY messy for me! I don’t get how people do it without having to shower after (okay a bit exaggerated, but not by much).
We are only having family over for our party, so only 10-11 adults and 4 kids. That’s all! crazy!
As I sit here typing, in my nice freshly cleaned living room, Olivia is sitting in the toy box tossing all the toys out into the living room… the opposite of what I just did! At least it’s easy to clean up again.
I’ll post pics. Promise.
I’m also doing a cross stitch for Olivia’s birthday. I was hoping to have it done by the party, but I think I’ll have to give it to her on her actual birthday.
I’m excited for the party. For the pizza (trying something different, hoping it’s easy). For the family visits. And for the wonderful naps the girls will have tomorrow 🙂
God Bless you and hope you have a fabulous day!
