Birthday Baby and Holiday Happenings

It is so hard to believe that 12 months have already passed. It has been such a wonderful year and I am really looking forward to discovering what the next 12 months have in store for us all :)

Miss ate her first piece of cake, which she enjoyed, as the photo below shows. I kept the decorating pretty simple this year by trying to make some little 'butterflies' for the top of the cake. Not the best creative job ever but I figured I would not get any complaints from a 12 month old :)

In addition to a birthday, we also had Christmas. Most of my family came here and stayed for anything from a couple of days, to a couple of weeks. It was pretty busy!

We all went camping for a couple of days which was nice, we went up to Nowendoc which we all love. Our horses are up there as well so I even managed to fit in a quick ride, I wish the horses were closer so I could do more with them...

All in all it was a fairly relaxing holiday period, but I now have to tidy the house, pack away the last of the camping and holiday surplus that is still sitting about and look ahead to a new year. With a new baby due in August, and all the renovation plans in the pipeworks I think we will be fairly busy in 2009.


  1. Still grinning with excitement that you're expecting again!

    Loved that cake. Maybe Til would've preferred that to a lemon cake... pink icing and chocolate butterflies would make any little girl's mouth water. Very pretty and effective.

  2. Congratulations again on the pregnancy.

    Love the cake and happy 1st birthday to your little miss.

  3. That is fantastic! And that is such a sweet face. :)
