Our Three Year Old Christmas Babe

Pip turned three yesterday, where did the time go?  We were running late with the birthday breakfast as we slept in!  The feast was stomach filling porridge and syrup followed by Birthday Cake!!  The littlest one insisted it should be so.

 Presents and cards on the table.

 The Birthday Ring.

 Tucking into porridge.

 Loving the Cake.

"Help, please Mummy!"

Pip loved the edible baubles!

 "Need help again!"

Angelina had a new bike for her Birthday...

... and so did Pip!

 A magnetic wooden dress the doll.

 A very cuddly pink Miss Mouse.

For lunch we had bubble and squeak savoury potato and veg patties, chipolata sausages, green beans and onion gravy.  Most of the food was prepped in advance, thank God! 

Today has been one long round of time in the kitchen, but my efforts have paid off and all the food for tomorrow has been cooked:

Cashew Nut and Sausage Meat Roast, Roast Potatoes, Braised Red Cabbage with Apple, Carrot and Swede Mash, Parmesan Parsnips and Creamed Brussel Sprouts with Roasted Chestnut Pieces.

It's now 10:00 pm , Sara and I have still yet to bring in and decorate the tree and Benedict is still rumbling around, grr!!  We've had a very difficult week with his blood sugars and general behaviour and I'm seriously thinking of changing my name by deed poll to "Ebeneezer!".

Christmas Eve Blessings One And All.
