Let Them Eat Cake....And Cookies...

Yesterday was Amare's second birthday!  It doesn't seem like he has been around for two years already. He is growing by leaps and bounds.  And of course, we think that he is the smartest and cutest kid around.

I just had to say "Happy Birthday Amare!!!"

He's the cake eater.
Now about the cookies...

Tessie stuffed herself yesterday.  That gave me a chance to finish putting on the trim and giving it a base coat.

I still need to score the lines and do some washes.

This morning I put the rest of the lead on the acetate printing sheets and coated them with nail polish on the inside.  I think that they will work out fine.  I am going to mount them inside the frames of the windows and not do the outside.

If anybody asks, I will just say that they were installed behind plate glass to protect them.  Yeah, that will work...
Tessie had to inspect each step, between cookies.  So far, she is approving...I think that the sugar high is making her mellow.

Zar informed me that he needed to steady the ladder because she was weaving a bit...

Personally, I think that he just wanted to get in on the cookie part of the inspection.  He figured out that every time Tessie approved of one of the steps, I gave her a cookie....
The only trouble was, Tessie found the sack.  She now has a three cookie stool to perch upon whilst munching...And... Zar gets to hold the next cookie for her.

I am not sure how much more I will be able to do today.  There seems to be a pile of cookies in my way.  And a very belligerent witch, with a cookie, that refuses to budge.

Oh well.  I didn't really want to install windows anyway.

See you tomorrow.

Amare certainly is growing. So cute. I think Tessie will be growing too if she eats all those cookies. How saintly is Zar just to stand there ready to hand the next cookie to Tessie. Surely he can't be that good?

Yes, now I see. I didn't think he was that saintly.

Amare is adorable! As for Zar, yes I noticed the half cookie...Does he plan on tricking Tessie? Doubt she will fall for it :-)
