celebrations

 This week of February is a busy one, Monday was Gilby's 2nd birthday, today is his mummy's 34th birthday and Thursday is our 37th wedding anniversary!
Below are some photos of Gilby's party...if you usually read my blog you will know that my daughter loves doing birthday parties for her family.

Gilby talking to Grandma & Grandpa on the phone...we were wishing him 'happy birthday'

Dance at Grandpa's
His party was based on his favourite book, Dancing at Grandpa's by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My daughter grew up reading Little House on the Prairie books.

his fantastic birthday cake
Gilby and his friend Tilda sharing some pop corn

 This display with the bird is taken from the first page of the book
The children made scented bags....

 and wool dolls
my daughter made each child a cross stitch with their initial...this is her first attempt at cross stitch after just one lesson from me on my last visit....she did a great job

she made little take home gifts from the cardboard cartons that come with her weekly veggi box delivery. These are to resemble picnic hampers....we would have loved to have been there...hopefully next year
