... been on the farm...


Good evening! We are winding down to the end of term here at home - the wee folks are moments away from the summer school break and I can't wait - I get to ditch the alarm clock for two months...bliss. 

This year I promised little dude that he could have a party for some of his school buddies - his birthday occurs during a significant holiday and so he has never really had a party that he could invite school chums to. Been feeling a little bad about this as he has attended loads of parties over the years... sooooo, we had 'half year' birthday party for him and a few of his buddies over the weekend at a local farm - my dude is nuts about sheep... he got to feed the lambs - never seen a kid so happy.

I made the carrot topped muffins and the sheep crispie buns, but I had to get the big guns in for the cake - in the shape of my pal 'S' who has a cake making business - isn't that cake just the best ever! - check out the cracked eggs - Shaun is baking a cake...on top of a cake...giggle, this just tickles me all over.

Anyhow, this is why I have no crafty stuff to show you - normal papery stuff will resume tomorrow.....

    1. Michelle - nope, no way - I really struggled with the little bits I did - I'm ok at modelling, but the technical know how about baking and storing just confounds me.... thanks for popping over!

  8. That cake is marvelous!! So many wonderful details: tell S that she has lots of fans!! Love your cute little cupcakes/muffins and the crispie treats too: you're a good Mommy!! Paper crafting has to wait for such a wonderful day for your little guy! I have a mid Dec birthday, so I can appreciate having a birthday placed in the wrong part of the calendar!! A few years ago I decided to celebrate it in Jan. so I could slow down and enjoy it! That is, except this year because it was on 12-12-14: had to celebrate that day!!!! Have a wonderful day Claire!! Hugs, H

  9. An official birthday and a real birthday - sounds like a great idea to me. Your friend sure makes a grand cake. It's brilliant. Mind you, I'm quite taken with your carrots and your sheep are fabulous too. Hugs, Lesley
