Am I too late? I had hoped to reach you earlier, but sadly had eaten a cake than made me really really small and it took my little legs ages to get to you!

Great party! Carol :)

T=ME said...

Very creative and the cake looks like it was enjoyed by all!Enjoyed the visit!

Joy said...

Oh, dear, I fear I am too late for the party. I'm sure the wonderful cake is gone by now. How sad! But at least Eli, Geri and the twins got my share and probably sweetie got the left overs. But a lovely time was had by all.
