In my post yesterday I made a cryptic remark about one of my activities for today. But now that it is today I can share what it was. And the secret activity for the day was this:
I couldn't share yesterday because it was for a surprise party for Emily, who reads my blog. I had too much fun making this cake. Especially these stars:
The cake was planned around the stars.
Emily's husband did a great job planning the surprise party. She had no clue. Here she is when she walked in the door:
Blurry, but you can see the expression on her face.
We sang "Happy Birthday":
And she blew out the candles:
Then we all pigged out on cake and ice cream and sat around chatting. She also opened her presents as some point:
It was nice to be out among adults and socializing. Anton left early with the kids because it was long past their bedtime, but I stayed and played.
It was great fun and great food (if I'm allowed to say that about my own cake) and great friends.
Happy Birthday Emily!!
