Ballerina and Batman Party

Isn’t that the most wonderful theme for a gorgeous little girl’s 6th birthday party.  Precious little Becky (my Godson Jamie’s sister) knows what she wants.  Got to love the finite decisions of this adorable youngster plus her insight of not wanting the boys to be left out with just a Ballerina theme.

Can’t believe it was a month ago we celebrated Becky’s 6th birthday and I am only sharing it with you now.  Pete was home that week so was able to join me for the trip to Plett to visit with family and attend this awesome birthday party.  It was a special and fun weekend.

While all the final preparations for the party were under way, I snapped a few shots for the memory coffers.  Becky 6 bday  33

Becky was very happy to do a photo shoot in the garden and it seems brother Jamie also wanted in on the action, especially seeing as he was using every antic in the book not to get out of his pj’s. 🙂

Breakfast consisted of some yoghurt and a couple of chocolates thrown in for good measure.  You got to love birthday party day preparations.

The birthday cake was a perfect and exquisite combination of the theme Ballerina and Batman.  The top half was a wonderful vanilla,the bottom half a decadent chocolate.

Even Bonnie dog was adorned with decorations.  At one stage she even had a tutu on.Becky 6 bday  90The gift table quickly filled up with beautifully wrapped presents for the birthday girl.

Becky had a splendid day with her friends and they all enjoyed playing pass the parcel, statues aka the freezing game, arts and crafts, creating masterpieces in the sandpit and bouncing on the trampoline.

Love you all, high as the sky.

I hope we will be able to enjoy Becky’s birthday with her next year.  I cannot wait to find out what theme she will choose.


In My Kitchen – December 2013

Here we are at the end of another year.  Thanks again to Celia who so kindly invited us all to partake in this fun monthly event.  I am looking forward to starting afresh in the New Year again.

In my kitchen…

Are 2 escargot dishes.  Escargot is not something we eat very often but have decided that when we do, we want to do it properly.

In my kitchen…

Are blue sprinkles.  I am super excited about these as normally I can only ever find pink and the odd occasion when I can find blue, the colours are usually not very nice.

In my kitchen…

Was the first of 2 fabulous pressies.  This first one is from my lovely sister-in-law Trish from when she visited last month.  Isn’t it just the most thoughtful lovely gift!

Was the second pressie from Mandy (Trish’s daughter – the mother of my Godson).  I was hoping to enjoy the bubbly with Mandy while she was here but alas, time did not allow.  I hope I can keep it long enough for the 2 of us to enjoy together soon.

Are a few more shells which I picked up on our last ride to, and walk on the beach.
