Today was my son Gaston's 4th birthday - I can't believe how quickly time flies!
Since Gaston almost prefers blowing out candels to eating the cake, I put more than just four candles. And to hide the chocolate stained paper I sprinkled the plate with smarties (which, as it turns out, was Lily's prefered part of the cake).
Since we only moved to Pontarlier five months ago and our extended family lives too far away, we couldn't plan a big party full of kids and chocolate stained T-shirts. But a birthday is not really a birthday without a cake so yesterday evening I got elbow-deep in chocolate and produced my very first (worth mentioning, at least) birthday cake!
I also listed a new eyeglasses case this afternoon, made of charcoal wool with vintage plaid necktie trim.
What a day!
