On the 8th of December…a birthday girl

This day in 1999, our second child, another daughter was born.

The aforementioned child has requested that I do not post any embarrasing photos of her as a baby, toddler, or little girl, especially not if she looks cute in any of them.

The following photos have all received official approval from the birthday girl!

The pavlova which she made yesterday was completed with whipped cream and strawberries:

The chosen birthday cake was chocolate

A friend came over to join in with the birthday tea and celebrations

George, the cat, did his best to ignore the festivities by pretending to be asleep on a Santa hat (but kept a close eye on everything!)

Outside it is still a snowy icey word

This was our local park at lunchtime today

And these were the church railings in town, and for once I had my camera to hand just when I needed it! I loved the frozen cobwebs.

Loving the Christmas commenting – keep up the encouragement please.
