I am done!

Sunday we had Jackson’s second 6th birthday party. (The first one we had was last Tuesday on his birthday and we took Jackson and five of his friends to laser tag. This one was at the local recreation center and we invited his friends from school and his cousins.)

It was a bit of extra work to do two parties, but it worked quite well to split the groups up. I may do it again – we will see though.

Here are a few pictures from the party.


Yes – those are blue cupcakes with worms on top. I am no Martha Stewart! But They tasted good. And Jackson wanted cupcakes with worms on top. He doesn’t like chocolate cake, so he wanted white/vanilla again. But that would have been exactly the same as what I brought for school on his birthday. So this time I mixed it up a bit and colored the icing blue – his favorite color!

And in true “last minute Janice style” I was up icing cupcakes at 1am the night before the party. LOL

Tonight I wanted to finish finding homes for his new toys, but I think I have broken my foot! I smashed it against the door frame earlier today and I am still in agony. I am hobbling around on my heel because my toes are swollen and throbbing. Not conducive to high speed tackling. So my work around the house will have to be a bit more slower paced tonight and tomorrow. But at least I got the birthday parties finished!

PS – In case you missed it, we are holding a contest for the best button design for our upcoming Ultimate Blog Party 2008. If any of you are designers and want to tackle a design idea, we would love to see it!

    Ouch! Your foot must be hurting pretty bad. I hope you feel better soon and that its not broken.
    Cupcakes came out cute, sometimes the simple things are much more appreciated. All the kids see on them anyway is sugar! Hope you have a great day.

    Oh, and I’ve done the exact same thing with my foot! My poor right pinky toe has never looked the same. It’s awful. And I couldn’t wear decent shoes for several weeks.

    You have my great sympathy!

    I am having problems with your page too. The posts are cut off in the right side margin. I can only see a little bit of the picture on the right and am missing all the words at the end of each line. I hope you can fix it because I’d love to be able to read your entire posts.
