We are ready for Andrew’s party. He wanted an explosive theme and I am so happy we have sunny dry weather. What a bummer if it was rainy and we couldn’t light our ‘explosives’. I was feeling ready to explode last night, when I caught Archie nibbling the cooling cake layers. Someone is on the top of Santa’s naughty list. Marc calmly rationalize that I could trim the nibbled parts and use that as a decorating challenge. Well, here is the result. I covered the missing parts with this haunted house. I was so happy Andrew wasn’t upset about his cake, he took it in stride. Maybe that’s what comes with being 9!
