At her request the party had to include
- decorations (care of the story Seven More Sleeps by Margaret Wild)
- party hats
- chocolate cake
How could I refuse?
We made decorations through the week using this idea (scroll down to baing tray prints) from Kids Craft Weekly. Ellyse really enjoyed this printing and I think they worked out really well. Best thing is that it is painting that she can manage herself.
Now for anyone reading this who knows Keiran, you will know that any kind of cake, icecream or desert make him thirst (a lovely term his niece and nephew came up with) so you will find it unusual that I would make him a Cherry Ripe Chocolate Mud Cake - trust me I was thinking of the other 14 people who were going to be here! I can highly recommend this recipe, it was absolutely beautiful.
And a photo of my gorgeous family, yes that is me wearing a jumper in Brisbane in November (almost December), it was so windy here today and the breeze was quite fresh.
In other news, Ashton weaned himself this week. I was planning on stopping the last feed soon anyway, but kept delaying it. I am not too sad about it though as I am hoping to be able to have another little bundle and do it all again.
Here is his last ever feed!
This is a little set I made for Ashton a while ago, not the best photo but you get the idea. I am really happy with it, although the top is in the handwashing pile as the first (and only ) time he has worn it he got crayon on it.
Ok I think that is enough of an update today. I am working on a few little projects at the moment for Christmas gifts, baby showers and birthdays!
I can't believe how close it is getting until Christmas, better get my skates on.
