Princess Jumpy Thing. Free reign of the entire house and yard. Tons of friends. Belle cake. I'd call the day a success.
Let me begin with some pictures I took of the cake I made before its dismantling, mere hours after its completion. It may seem regrettable for a thing that took so long to create to be decimated so quickly, but I got what I wanted - the look of sheer delight on Kate's face when she saw it. That will be burned in my memory for a lifetime, so it's all good. These photos are kind of crappy, but I will replace them when I get a hold of the ones Joy took - hers were better.
As always the tattoos were popular particularly among the adults. But the kids were covered in them too. Also entertaining to me was watching the boys pillage Kate and Sarah's dress-up box. I like the photo of little Alex in the witch's dress. Anyway, I'm pretty well plum tuckered so here's a bunch of unexplained photos of the event.
