Brandon was out of town and I was certain I could do it all by myself.
Public apology time to Brandon:
I bite off more than I can chew often and he always comes in and saves the day at the last minute. He was in Saudi Arabia which made it impossible to come and save me. Cakes, kids, presents and public transportation don't go well together. To this mixture please add in a sick Aidan. I called in backup. Edith the babysitter came in and preformed Brandon's duties (with an added bonus of laundry and cleaning), between her and taxi drivers, I am most certain I paid for a pretty great Christmas in a small third world country somewhere. Let it be known that on Wednesday the 9th of December I missed my husband!!!!
Now, back on course:
There was lots of fun, a bit of drama (little girls and this subject go hand and hand), messy paint, loud noise makers, a pinata and of course the Rainbow Cake. This year I used Martha Stewart's Seven Minute Frosting (from the cookbook, not the website, the website is NOT correct) and it was GREAT! But wait, if you are reading this from the United States you have something called canned frosting. Lucky you.
I did use Betty Crocker, but even that made me nervous. Why? Well, let me just put it to you this way. We brought one of Jaylee's friends home with us before the party and he saw my bed and said:
"Oh!!! You have a tall bed just like the one at my castle."
