Parties, Jobs and Creativity I've already failed on many of my year-end resolutions. I do have a good excuse though: It's been a crazy week, in good things and in bad (or maybe I should just say 'crappy').

First off, Elijah turned one!!! I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. In some ways I can't believe he's been alive for 365 days, but in other ways I can't (and don't want to) remember life without him!! I love him soooo much, he's the cutest thing ever and makes me laugh constantly!! We had a big party (more pics to follow), with his Grammy from Ohio coming for a visit. So, it's been busy, and I have had so little time to myself! But, I love my little guy, I love parties, and I love family, so I don't care!!

The bad side: I have to get a job. I know, it sucks sucks sucks, but I need to, so I've been busy searching the jobbank and writing a resume and cover letters. I'm just praying God will have mercy on me and give me a fantastic, perfect job that I love!! I don't like change, so this is a huge, painful step for me. I'm trying to embrace it and think of the good things...hum??!!

Anyway, I was super crafty last week for E's party. Here's a couple of my creations!!

My mum always made really fun, creative cakes when I was growing up, so I've always been excited to do the same for my kids. I was really happy about how it turned out, especially for my first 'fancy' cake!!

I found the instructions for this hat online, and it fits Elijah perfectly!!
