Happy Birthday Darling
Annabelle had a mushroom party on the weekend to celebrate her 4th birthday. She loves eating mushrooms, and there was a very cute mushroom cake in the cake book, so it was an obvious choice.
Later, on her birthday itself, we celebrated again, this time with a flamingo cake (of course.)
This extended birthday led to lots of announcements along the lines of "After all, I AM the birthday girl". And lots of checking - "is it still the birthday, Mummy?"
Lucas was very excited about Annabelle's birthday, since he and Daddy had been shopping for a present which he chose all by himself. There were actually 4 presents, 2 of which were lollipops, one for each of them.
Both children are now counting down till their next birthdays - this is where seasons are very important, since they don't really understand the concept of a year.
