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.
And this is the finished gift. So lovely!
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.
Rowan and my mum against the winter sky.
And lastly, a birthday tea, with friends - and cake (of course).
A lovely lovely day of celebration.
