happy birthday!

A wonderful birthday for my little one, with a very early start (5.30am, hence the terrible photo below!) to open the present, and days of playing with them. Lunch at yum cha in the city, delicious, and family around.

A beautiful bunch of tulips from a little friend.

And her birthday cake (didn't have a big enough tray!)

My present to her, to enjoy her music and story cds. She was pretty happy!

And I think she is so gorgeous, I will post this one of me, despite my 5.30am face. After 5 hrs sleep, too, by the way!

Ho Ho Ho! The next step is Christmas! Christmas at my mother's has been cancelled, due to the good ole family argument. So a few weeks off work, lazing around at home and spending time with my girl, ah, bliss. Hopefully lots of craft and sewing, too!

The cake is sooo gorgeous - and not to mention her little face!

I hear you on the 5.30am, Parker was up with the birds on her birthday, far too early to be doing assmebleage and batteries!!

PS. Boo to family arguments, though I'd like a break from the in-laws this year! Must plan to be away next year!!
