Hi all, hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving, on to Christmas now :)
Lachlan's first birthday party was wonderful... not sure how many more things could go wrong in the preparation though .... the hot water tap in the shower needed a special tool to fix after leaking solidly for two weeks, it rained so hard the patio area of Bec and Chris's house flooded which was where the party was going to be held, the tap in the kitchen split... I have never seen this before, the metal tap just split open and was spraying water out everywhere when you turned it on, the lollypops I made melted in the humidity, the jellies melted as well, the blue butter icing for the cake turned out green and curdled so we had to buy frosting from Spotlight, spent a fortune and only needed half the amount so we have a full tub of orange flavoured blue icing ready to be used! LOL , the wet dogs sat on three of the chairs we wanted to use for the visitors so were filthy... fortunately we had taken 12 chairs with us, so not so much of an issue! Steve didn't cope well with not being the center of attention and so was exceptionally loud! especially afterwards when we were all exhausted ! and.... and... well you get the idea!
After the party was over Bec gave Lachlan the remainder of the cake for a "Cake Smash" . Never heard of this before, but apparently it is becoming quite popular.... you let the child loose and then take heaps of photos!.... Lachlan had a ball .... I suggested they run a bath beforehand so it was ready when he was finished, and, bless him, once he had had enough, he just crawled off into the bathroom, leaving a little blue path behind him. Too, too cute!
isn't he just the cutest ever!
and then... got back home and no internet as we had more than used up our measly allowance so no freebie for you til today!
I have a basic Christmas card for you today, one you can add to if you wish, but will work just as is... a great way to get some mass produced cards cut and ready to go!
I embossed my writing bu using red ink and the UTEE which made it a little more substantial. This is a very fine font so cut slowly! I also added Kindy Glitz to the tree and the trunk to make them sparkle. The ribbon is a gold thread, just doesnt show up very well in the pic.
