And finally I'm caught back up to today. Sorry about the blogs in spurts. Sometimes it just works out that way. First off I want to say thanks to all of you who posted about theme days. I truly love getting comments on my blogs and that was really what that was all about. I am going to try and incorporate some of those ideas into my future posts and please post any other ideas you have.
Copious amounts of icing.
Darwin was doing the photography and the flash was a little intense.
She had some trouble with the ribbons.
But loved the cupcakes!!
She had some help getting the icing all over her face. She was actually a really neat eater.
She liked her stuffed frog a lot but her favorite "present" was the crayon box I used as wrapping for one of the shirts I got her. Somehow we didn't end up with a picture of that.
While they don't exactly look enthused here everyone had a great time and stayed around for the "party" until we left. Everyone was also really really impressed with my quilt. Mom, tell Judy her quilt was a hit.
I also spent some time cleaning wounds tonight. Javier and several other homeless people were beaten up by the police the other night and I'm still working on getting everyone cleaned up. Javier was hit so hard in the face with a rock that 4 of his teeth are cracked and went through his cheek. The police here are very corrupt and often have drunken late night boxing sessions on the homeless. It's something that has been happening for years and it's so sad. The homeless guys just accept it and really I don't know what can be done to change it but it's heartbreaking. I hand out bandaids and triple antibiotic ointment like candy. Triple antibiotic ointment and gauze are great things to send down if you're looking for a way to help.
All in all it was a good night at the end of a long day. I'm pretty tired but happy to have gotten caught up on my blogs. Thanks so much for reading. I love you guys.
