Thank you, ladies. :ymhug: I had a lovely day. It was a nice break from work and the general craziness of life right now. Games are a big part of birthdays at our home, one of my favorites is Scrabble which I lost four times on my birthday. I think it was payback for the time I won four games in one day. ;) I did win a game of Sequence. :)

Y'all know me pretty well. :) Those cakes are so amazing.

^I know, I really want to try making one myself! It looks like it might be at my skill level, too, as opposed to the architectural masterpiece you posted. ;))

*nods* Yes, isn't that something?! And waaaay beyond my ability, lol. Plus, it looks too exquisite and detailed to cut into and eat, I'd say. ;))

Oh, thank you all! I did have a good day - I'm glad that the treats on here are virtual, as I got far too much sugar, beginning with a steady stream of goodies at work. Think I'm still buzzing today.

I am currently sheepless, Betsy-Rose, but it brings back fond memories. I hope to get a couple more within the next few weeks, primarily as companions for my lonely horse. We'll see...

That library cake is amazing, jo - so many details. I must say that I wouldn't have the patience to do something like that - everyone's lucky if I even get around to icing the things.
Of course, it doesn't quite represent my library - I mean, room on the shelves? What sacrilege! Where are the volumes piled on the floor, stacked to the ceiling, stuffed into crevices and stowed in boxes?

Cool! :D

:)) Indeed!

It's your brother's birthday soon, isn't it? *recalling last year's Moot when we sang a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to him* Well, do pass on felicitations and greetings to him from the NarniaWebber gang.

Will do! He really enjoyed it, too.
