What a whirlwind birthday week we have had.
It started last Wednesday with a morning tea with some of the family.
Then receiving gifts in the days leading up to the big event.
We made two cakes this year. One for celebrating with more family on the weekend and the second for The Party that she had been telling everyone about for weeks on end.
Sunday saw us drive out to the Canungra Hotel and enjoy a very tasty lunch with Dad and my brothers and their families. It was a day to remember my grandmother who just passed away as it was her birthday so we wanted to spend the day with Dad to help him through one of many not so easy days. It was a lovely relaxing day. There was an area where the kids could play and run around and a guy playing a guitar. Just a perfect relaxing day. Very fitting for grandma. She would have loved it.
And then today we celebrated with a few gifts in the morning...
... and the party with her friends and her train cake.
To top it off when Daddy came home, he had arranged for the girls to have a pony ride next door with our neighbours. A twilight pony ride to boot I should add.
And then the final present from Daddy and I. The V-motion. Just like a Wii for little people. Still not sure if I've made the right choice there but the threat has already been made that if they fight, they lose it! *sigh*
Poor AJ has really had to step up and let little Miss 3 get her own way but, every now and again, I need to pull her into line because she really thinks the world revolves around her right at this point. I remember going through this with AJ too and it's draining. Very. Draining.
Hopefully it won't last long.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCHMOOEY!!!
