Portrait Saturday…

This week was Kye’s 4th birthday, wow, time has flown, he is so big now, but still my baby, (who really enjoys his sling :)… He had a wonderful day with many friends visiting, he was given beautiful presents. On the morning of his birthday, I made him a birthday cake board. This will be the beginning of a new birthday tradition in our family. It is a wooden board that the birthday cake rests on with holes for the candles to stand in. This idea was inspired by this lovely blog. I love discovering new traditions and I think this is a very special one for our whole family…

Happy Saturday everyone…
Warmly

The Best Day Ever…

Today was the best day ever… Today was my 37th birth-day 🙂

I think I loved it more than any birthday I have had. I woke up early to find that everyone was awake way before me and they had been busy creating a special birthday table just for ME! This was so wonderful, we love birthdays here and we always prepare a special table for every birthday. But today there was a table prepared for me…

I wondered what Jen was making last night and to my surprise, she was making me my own felt birthday crown… Precious… I just love that my children enjoy these special celebrations and I can see that this tradition will continue with them for when they themselves have their own families someday. I love this continuity of family tradition…

I had a lovely breakfast and then Jen began to bake me a cake…

I was taken to brunch by a specail friend, came home and was generally doted on for the rest of the day… I feel so humbled by everyones kindness and this made me think about how much has changed in my life over the last year… I have made lovely friendships, learned sooo much about so many things and know that my journey has yet many paths to travel. I look forward to the future eagerly and know that my next year will bring even more joy and life lessons my way…

I feel so privilaged to be a part of my wonderful family and to have all the special people in my life that are all so wonderful, thank you so much…

I loved this day…

Happy Birthday Cady

This Tuesday was Caiden’s Birth-day, he is now eight years old, how quickly the time has flown, when I think back to the very day he joined us eight years ago, I still remember this beautiful little baby that birthed into this world. His birth was a wonderful gift, our second home birth, so special and gentle…

We had a lovely day together, even his daddy was able to join us for his special celebration in the afternoon, it was a full day with much to do in preparation… The night before Richard and I prepared his birth-day table, I love this tradition. Just before bed Cady and I said his birthday poem, I lit a candle and we said his poem together and then off to sleep he went, so full of excitement for the day to come. A special table with flowers, a candle and all his gifts was prepared the night before, with his birth-day crown too.

I baked a cake…


Erin and I prepared a bunting…

Friends came over and played Red Rover and Pass the Parcel…

What a wonderful day…

Giveaway…Happy Birthday Mamma4earth !

Thanks for all your wonderful comments about Kye’s gnome hat, it is actually quite an amazing hat because this hat fits Kye, 3 and Erin, 10 so there is no real need to adjust the pattern as it is lovely and roomy.


We have found the first blossom on our Nectarine tree, Yay, Spring is on its way at last! We have been having rain all weekend, but that is wonderful for our veggies.

Jenna finished her knitted bag this weekend and now she is making a liner for her bag.

I have been spinning this weekend, I first spun up some Alpaca and then I spun up some varigated beige Merino and I plyed the two together, it is so soft, I might add it to my yarn shop, I’m not quite sure if I am ready to part with it yet though…, maby I will knit something with it, off to spin again today 🙂
