Party Day at Home

Today was the family party for Noah's birthday...he had a blast.
The day started off badly for me. I got up at 9am...Noah is usually up by 7 but didn't go to bed last night until 11pm because daddy bought him a hot wheel track and they were setting it up and then playing with it. So anyway, I was upset because I got up later than I wanted. I got started baking the cake and while that was cooking I got to scrubbing the kitchen floor. In this house there is no mopping. Our floor is old and to get it to look nice I have to use a Mr Clean magic eraser on my hands and knees. By the time I finished that (we have a large kitchen/dining area) it was time to decorate the cake. Somehow in my sleep deprived life I misread the insructions. It said about using a 12x18 sheet cake and I made a 13x9 cake. UGH! So I had to improvise on the Nemo. Here is the results...
(I am no cake decorated by any means but I try)



And one of him blowing out his candles.



The cake tasted great though and everyone had a good time. That's all that really counts.
