... I was happy with the way the cupcakes turned out. What do you think?
My parents came early to play with WCK so I could make them all. It wasn't too hard. My chief complaint is that I did indeed order the wrong size of eyeballs. I think the eyes need to be bigger and buggier. Don't you think the bugs look sort of beady-eyed and suspicious, as though they're plotting something?
Beady eyes aside, the party was a success. We held it at a local park, and we really lucked out with beautiful weather. It was a casual, good time with family, friends, and frosting. (Two-year-olds aren't known for eating cupcakes neatly ... but it was pretty funny to watch. My mom got it on video.) WCK loved the balloons, but wouldn't wear her ladybug hat. I had a whole lot of fun planning everything. Now I only have 364 days to plan next year's. I don't even have a theme yet! Pressure!
Today is Jay's 31st birthday. If you know the Old Man, drop him an e-mail! I think WCK and I are going to take him out to dinner to celebrate next weekend, since this weekend has already been so wild and cupcake-filled. That's the best kind of weekend, though.
