Curious George

It was an eventful day today. Most of the day was spent building a Curious George birthday cake for our friends' little boy, who turned three yesterday. His mommy and daddy were planning a Curious George birthday party but were devastated last week with the loss of their little girl at 30 weeks in the womb. Our friends from church hosted the party today for them instead. It is a blessing to share in the lives of friends--in both easy times and the difficult. dsc02437.jpg

George is made of rice krispy treats, and the big yellow hat is a lemon cake filled with lemon curd and whipped cream. Despite many reconstructive surgeries, George still ended up looking like a hunchback...

I stitched a colored pencil "roll" with a little blank journal for the birthday boy.

It folds up neatly with velcro, and is the perfect size for a little boy on the go!
