Creative Friday

Kye 7

Our sweet Kye is 7 years old today! We awoke early before 6 am this morning, there was great excitement in the house. Kye has been counting down the days on his birthday calender that Caiden made for him. We each gave this special boy 7 kisses when he woke, it’s time to ice birthday cakes and embark on a wonderful day.

We love you dear one….

Happy Birthday to our sweet boy, Caiden!

There was so much excitement here this morning, as you can imagine, he has been counting down the days for months! I think we all got up at 6:45 am and made our way to the birthday table prepared in the front lounge. I love preparing the birthday table, it has been a family tradition for quite a few years now.  I got the idea from this lovely book called The Birthday Book, a Waldorf inspired book, full of birthday goodness. I also made felt crowns for our children a few years ago and these little traditions have such great meaning to all of us. The night before each birthday I read a sweet poem from that lovely book and even though they are all getting older, they still love to have their poem read to them by myself and have that special table waiting for them each birthday morning…

The birthday cake has been baked and is cooling in the kitchen…

We wish you all the love and happiness in the world dear Cady,

Love from all of us.



Our Lovely Weekend

This has been such a lovely weekend…
Our beautiful Jenna turned 15 years old yesterday, time has flown…

I went for a walk around our garden early this morning after feeding the chickens. It was -1 degree Celsius, really freezing, my hands were burning after taking the ice out of their water, but how lovely to be out there. I looked up at our neighbours tree with the moon in the background and had to go and grab my camera. I do know that this tree is indigenous to Australia and has a thorny bark with the most gorgeous pink flowers, such a sight to see…( if you know its name please could you let us know)

This little pond by our front door is frozen over…(It was 3 degrees inside our home this morning, the fires are blazing now)

Yesterday family and old friends come over to celebrate with Jen, she has had a special time…

Our chickens’ warming themselves among the Lavender bushes in the early morning sunshine…

Frozen water in the chickens enclosure…

Jenna’s birth orchids…
This beautiful orchid was given to me on the day of Jenna’s birth 15 years ago. It was a single orchid in bloom. It was given to me by my wonderful mom-in-law as a gift. Each year around the time of Jenna’s birthday it give us the most beautiful show of flowers. It has become a huge plant with many blooms and I probably should divide the bulbs but it seems so happy on our front veranda, just as it is.

I spotted some Violets flowering in a pot outside, do you see the mesh? This has been placed here to prevent our curious chickens from jumping up into our pots and scratching every piece of greenery out while they search for little grubs to eat.

Here I am squinting into my camera, taking a photo through a window reflecting off a mirror inside our house. I am wearing my Shalom cardi and I must tell you, it is so incredibly warm, I love it!

The Red Hot Pokers are flowering again, their bright colours make me so happy…

Even Jack popped out in the cold for an early morning snack.

Have a lovely week.



Happy 15th Birthday to our darling Jenna.
This day, 15 years ago you arrived in this world, you have taught me so much, thank you.

We love you and are very proud of the wonderful, caring and confident young woman you have become.
 Love from all of us, 
Mom, Dad, Erie, Cady, Kye-Kye and (all the chickens)
