Wesley's Big Party

Randy likes to point out that I have a tendency to bite off more than I can comfortably chew. The monkey costume was a perfect example of this. So was Wesley's cake. I have never decorated a cake beyond frosting it and adding candles and maybe confetti. For this creation, I wanted to learn how to make fondant.
So I practiced. And I toiled. And I crossed my fingers that this wouldn't be a huge disaster, having heard that fondant is particularly finnicky to work with.

I think it was a decent success.

My parents made a special trip up for Wesley's big day. So together with Randy's parents, we had a pretty fun party.
Randy did a fantastic job as the decorating committee.
Present opening was a big hit.

Thanks everyone for the presents, the cards, and all the love. This little guy had the time of his life!

Wesley, you are the sparkley, happy, wonderful part of my life. You are a constant source of joy and laughter in our home. You have the sweetest, most gentle spirit and we know you will be such a good big brother to the other children who will enter our home someday.
I love you, little pookie
And love you and love you
And love you and love you
