Happy Birthday Dashiell!

I can't believe you are 4 already. It seems like no time at all since you were born, and now you're definitely not so little anymore.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I love you :)

Dear Dashiell,

Today you are 2!

Happy Birthday!

This is the example picture from the cake decorating magazine of the cake I want to make for Dashiell.

Bear in mind that I'm only doing a single tier though.

Tonight I get to dye all the fondant in preparation for tomorrow, when I'll bake the cake.

Tomorrow is going to be a really busy day. Besides tidying the various remnants in the house that need tidying, I also need to do a big shop and a bunch of prep work for Dashiell's birthday/our housewarming party.

Because I'm a complete masochist, I'm going to bake and decorate Dash's cake myself. Complete with coloured fondant and all kinds of decorations. That said, I'm not so masochistic that I'm following the cake decorating magazine's descriptions to the letter and making it a 2 tier cake. I'll stick with a single tier. We're also not expecting that many people, so a 12" and 8" cake would be kind of ridiculous. So a single 9" cake it will be.

I'm also going to bake and decorate cupcakes.

And make fruit salad.

And... and...

Today 2 years ago was my due date with Dashiell.

Crazy how time flies.

Friday I turned three-oh. Along with Star Wars, and sharing that birthday has always been cool. As well as sharing the day with Poppy Z. Brite's (lj user="docbrite") birthday (many happy returns!).

Thursday evening [ profile] daskreestof came over and obligingly gave me a new haircut for the occasion. Nothing like turning three-oh for new wild hair-do's right? Pictures will be forthcoming once good ones have been taken and when we either find cables to attach the camera to the computer, or find the printers and fish them out of moving boxes and attach them to the network so I can read the card. I'm not quite done with the bleaching and funky colour part yet anyway.

One of Dashiell's therapists has offered to babysit on many an occasion, so I decided to take her up on her offer, and we dropped Dash off for the evening. We got to go to a Japanese Hibachi and Sushi restaurant and a movie, and he got to catch up on some missed therapy. The hibachi was really nice, we had filet mignon, lobster tail and shrimp. Fried green tea ice cream for dessert. Excellent stuff.

Sadly our movie plans didn't work out. I really wanted to go see the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but 2 movie theaters at 2 different times in 2 different towns were all sold out. So we saw Shrek The Third instead. I didn't like it quite as much as the second one, but it was still a lot of fun.

All in all a good birthday, though I wish our friends were here to celebrate it, and not strewn to the four corners of the earth instead.

And now it is Saturday, and I wish CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan ([ profile] greygirlbeast) a very happy birthday!

I still really want to see PotC3 though. Maybe next weekend
