Warning - as usual lots of photos!
It's my Darling's ___ birthday today :-) He was woken at 6.30am by Aaron getting into bed beside him heheee He took the day off so we've had a busy morning!
While Lyndon was receiving birthday phone calls and checking emails the kids iced and decorated a little mini banana loaf each for his birthday cake.
Sieving the icing sugar.
Aaron doing one of his numerous taste tests!!
Mixing in water & vanilla essence.
I put the icing on the loaf and gave them a little dish of heart & star sprinkles and chocolate drops to use for decorating (or eating as the case may be!!).
Then the left over sprinkles & choc drops got consumed with a teaspoon of left over icing! :-)
After Lyndon had finished with his phone calls the kids gave him the cards & pictures they made yesterday (nearly gone through another 6 bottles of glitter glue!!).
Opening first present ... Aaron picked this one out all by himself!
Yep ... a packet of smarties! heheee
A dinosaur excavation kit,
Aaron hadn't seen it before, but here he is telling Daddy ALL about it anyway hehee
Some watch magazines :-) (the only present really for Lyndon himself LOL)
And some foam thingy-me-jigs that you put together ... one was a crocodile and one was a crab.
Nearly finished the crab ... love the way Maddison is sitting!!! ;-)
Then time for some excavating ... the boys looking for dinosaur bones and Maddison getting into the smarties packet on the quiet :-)
Found the head.
Daddy was in charge of the knife & Aaron was in charge of brushing away the dirt and cleaning the bones :-)
Excuse me Daddy ... look what I found!
After all the hard excavating it was time for cake :-)
Daddy never got a look in to blow out the candles! :-)
And that's just been our morning! :-)
I suspect there might be bubble blowing later on in the playground. After all what else are birthday's for apart from things to entertain kids!! ;-)
