Happy Birthday Livy!

So tomorrow is Alivia's birthday. She will be the big 2 years.
So today, we had a little celebration at lunch time. I made her a Dora the Explorer cake(she loves Dora). I think she was quite surprised and happy with it. Everything was Dora themed, from the balloons to the presents.
This is actually my first character cake ... it wasn't too hard to make. The biggest obstacle was the number of tips I had ... I thought I had two #16 Star tips and two #3 Round tips. Turns out I only have one of each. So I had to do a lot of changing. The next time I make a character cake, I will most definitely pick up more of each tip before I frost.

Passport Canada

They totally rock.

We went to the office this morning expecting to be there for a few hours ....

... 20 minutes later, we were in the car on the way home.

Although, I must say the young woman who processed my app had the personality of a wet, limp, overcooked noodle. I don't know if I can even qualify that as a personality.

Anyway, when all is said and done, I will have my passport in my hands by April 23rd. My very first passport. Eeee!

I don't know how well it's going to work out. But I am going to try.

I have the alarm set for 6:30. I am setting my clothes out tonight.

We'll see if I can actually make it out the door for some exercise before Livy arrives.

Fingers crossed!
