Wrapped and ready.
Pip woke at her usual time of six thirty but was happy to hang out in her room until I was sorted a little while later. She found the large box shaped present very intriguing and her response upon opening was absolutely delightful:
Meet Shannon who likes nothing more than being outdoors, she is an our generation girl
Once the remainder of the presents had been opened we made our way into the front room for the "x" marks the spot, you were born here at 8:30 am:
My not so little baby just about able to sit on my knee :-)
It wasn't long before Pip's best buddy from school arrived and they had great fun:
Sharing a how to draw book.
Decorating cup cakes.
Pink icing, Christmas sprinkles and chocolate hearts!
Watching and waiting ...
... for the fountain!
I had "technical issues" and could not strike the second match quickly so that they would burn simultaneously!
After lunch we made spoon puppets:
A flower girl puppet for B.
We also had several other visitors throughout the day dropping off cards, presents and good wishes. Pip remarked several times that it was the best birthday ever and kept thanking me for the party and the treat activities. We bought her a birthday card with her absolute favourite phrase:
" Love you to the moon and back"
And she also adds, " and deep down into your heart."
As I write she and Shannon are tucked up snug in bed and since Pip is not usually a bed sharer with her teddies and rag doll this is quite an interesting turn of events :-)
Smashing Seven! Oh to be young again :-)
