Here are a couple pics from R.'s party on Sunday. Poor little guy got really sick on Friday and was quite under the weather for his party, but he hung in there and had some fun with the kids. Come Sunday night we were exhausted from caring for a sick baby waking up every 30 minutes and preparing and hosting the party. But it was tons of fun and everyone had a great time! I found out today poor LO has strep throat. We were going to postpone the party but this was the last chance before Christmas for most people to attend. I warned everyone so they could decide if they wanted to bring their kids around our sick LO. Most of the kids were older and in daycare so they didn't care too much.
The pics are of the cupcakes I made - sorry no pics of us (DH refuses to let me post any on the web). Sorry they are huge I don't know how to resize.
Your fish cupcakes turned out great - I really like the fish lips! Glad the party went well. Sorry your son was/is so sick. Hope he gets better - sounds like its been rough on the whole family with the extra night wakings. Not what you want when you are trying to get a party together and getting ready for work. Is this your first week back?
Technically yes but with LO sick I've been able to talk my boss into letting me stay home another week. I did a little bit of work from home this week. I am dreading going back because LO just bawls the entire time with the babysitter. For hours! Other than that I'm excited to go back to work. I am also only going back 3 days per week so it's not too bad.
ETA: The dark smarties I used for the fish eyes sort of bled their colour into the icing, making the eyes look all cracked out!
