I have hoped that they would be as fond of the memories and the creative process that is involved in the sharing of special day such as birthdays, Christmas, Easter and other special days. Days such as our Hobbit Day or Star Wars Week and The Doll's Fair we have.

|Waiting like we all do|
I am very aware of the differences in different families, and traditions that we hold dear are not what every other family needs to do or even wants to do.
I suggested to them both that it was a lovely idea but Anna's parents may other other plans for her day. I left it at that and was expecting Braedon to go to Anna-Lisa's home interstate for her birthday.

Over the last couple of weeks,while Anna has been staying with us, I have been slowly preparing some of the items we would have for our children: making a birthday bag, a sign for the seasons table, making a birthday crown and painted saint.
Anna-Lisa love picking the cake she would have and the meal for us to share. She spent a few days looking at saint pictures before finally settling on her painted saint.

We even had a record holding amount of lollies for the party bags......around 500grams each. Ouch how embarrassing. However we did get extra because we were expecting extra guests for Anna-Lisa's actual birthday.

Blessings to you and your homes,
