It's only three days until Baby's very first birthday. Yikes. I've got a million things to do, but for whatever reason, I'm so tired that I can barely imaging getting off of the couch. We went to My Gym today, and had a great time, save for a scary almost-tumble-moment that spooked Baby pretty good. Baby's exhausted too, and napping peacefully at the moment. I'm just trying to think about what's left to be done for Baby's birthday.
Part of the challenge is that he will have his birthday on Friday, with a small Mommy/Daddy party, and then the big party on Saturday. So, I have to bake a cake for Friday, plus his smash cake for Saturday and the big cake. And I need to figure out the appetizers to put out at the big party. Do I want to make something? I'd love to show off and make something, but I don't think so, I think I'll just buy some cheese and crackers and maybe some veggies and dip or something. Or nuts. I don't know. I guess I'm going to have to start putting stuff together tomorrow, really, between the shopping and the baking. I did look at the party supplies, and see that we're short on birthday hats, so I picked up more of those yesterday.
So, let's see, I ought to make a list. Otherwise nothing will get done.
1. Bake Friday birthday cake or cupcakes. I'm thinking cupcakes will make more sense here.
2. Bake smash cake for Saturday.
3. Bake Saturday Elmo cake.
4. Decorate Elmo cake.
5. Decorate dining room.
6. Clean up kitchen after baking bonanza is over.
7. Grocery shop and pick up other loose ends for party.
I think that's all, outside of the massive cleaning going on...that better be all - time's running out already!!
