Tomorrow is Julie's birthday, so today was spent in eager preparation. I think Jorja may some day be an event planner. I baked the cake yesterday, so today we decorated it (Jorja, Ginny and me). There are several words I could use to describe decorating a cake with a two year old and a five year old, but I think I'll just go with interesting. I would post pictures, but I'll have to wait until after the big day as to not ruin the surprise. Like anything with Jorja is ever a surprise. Anyway, the cake turned out pretty good, so then it was time to make party hats. After all, what is a party without party hats? I fashioned five little cones out of paper and Jorja busily decorated them. Oh yes, it is going to be quite the party. For the girls' last couple of birthdays, Julie has made big poster-sized banners saying happy birthday along with pictures of the theme of that year. Jorja also had to make a banner which I have been told I am to hang up tonight while Julie is sleeping to it's a surprise when she wakes up. Who does she think I am, Santa? I think I'll just do it in the morning. She also thinks there should be balloons, but I don't think we have any, so I hope there aren't too many tears over that. Don't laugh, there may very well be - she takes these things very seriously. You also have to imagine her talking 90 miles an hour throughout this whole process as to what I am supposed to be doing and why we're doing this and how that will turn out. It's very exhausting. On that note, I've got some gifts to wrap. Later.
