I am finally recovering from this weekend and still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it Monday. These long weekends always throw me off. Anyway, Isaiah's birthday party turned out great. John surprised me with a visit from the hospital, something I was completely not expecting. He was able to get out on a day pass and it was so special that he was able to be there for the party. He's still in the hospital, but feeling much better and hopefully getting out of "jail" soon.
Isaiah really enjoyed all the attention, not to mention the presents and cake. Now the cake was really a work of art, in my opinion. My sister and I stayed up way past our bedtimes on Friday night and woke up early Sat morning to finish it up. Both Thomas and the shed are made of cake. Thomas' face is made out of fondant and was surprisingly easy to make. We made the rails out of chocolate twizzlers and chocolate modeling clay. And of course, lots of coconut "grass."
Now I'm ready to claim my sewing room back. Everything was cleaned up and put away for the party since my sewing room also doubles as the dining room. Perhaps I shouldn't say "everything" got put away as you can see the measuring tape and stitch witchery in the picture. I'm looking forward to finishing up some special projects and starting new ones. Hopefully this will be a nice productive and relaxing week!
