Birthdaying

So there we were, last thing at night, busy beavers knowing that a sleeping little girl upstairs would be so delighted in the morning with whatever we had achieved! My last picture of this three year old.

And yes, I did everything off my list! Here is Jenna working hard on her present to Morgan.

Gorgeous surprised face, my first picture of this four year old. :) Four times around the sun. Four years since I birthed her into warm water beneath our twinkling Christmas lights. And look! She is just so beautiful!

Tweedle Dee Dee is such a *great* book and she has loved it for a long time. I'm so glad I saved it for her birthday.

And her present from us, some little peg dolls from Blackbeary Mountain.

A table set for a birthday pixie. When I lit the candles, Jenna took Morgan in her arms and prayed over her as we do on Friday nights at candle lighting.

A birthday tradition, our walks at Attenborough. The children loved the sight of the semi-frozen gravel pits and spent a while smashing ice and trying not to go in deep enough to get icey water in their wellies.

And lastly, a birthday tea, with friends - and cake (of course).

  8. Thankyou all! :)

    Jenna did a great job on the felting, I thought I'd end up doing a lot of the embellishment but she so wanted it to be all her own work. Sibling sweetness. :)
