Thanks to my sister for realizing that yesterday was E's birthday and for pulling a party out of her ass, a-la-(insert last name here) style.
My brother-in-law came back from picking up Derek and takeout and said, "did you just make all those decorations while I was gone?"
Oh ye of little faith.
I, of course, was studying because that's all I do these days. If you want to see pictures of the impromptu party, they are over here. You can tell the kid hasn't had much sugar.
