Better late than never... birthday pics!
She's been around the sun six times, older wiser and getting more independent every day. I do miss the little one, but her jokes are way funnier now.
As I had mentioned before, we decided to have a puppet party, which opened with a puppet game show, and then all the kids went into the shop room for sock puppet shenanigans. I loved seeing how each kid's puppet was so different, some wanted big shiny button eyes, some had a rainbow of puffballs down the length of the puppet, others had googly eyes and feathers. A good time was had by all.
I made the traditional butterfly cake, a lemon pound cake- which I made using this recipe, and was absolutely fantastic. And we topped it with cutouts made from starburst
a la angry chicken
So that's it for now- but there will be gardening pics soon- the weather's lovely and we've been working the dirt again. (and there may be some puppy pics too!)
