Today is my eldest daughter's 9th birthday!
We had a lovely day yesterday preparing things.
The girls made little origami party bags.
Easy to make and decorate all by themselves - and then fill with chocolate eggs! (there's always room for more chocolate - after all Easter was almost a week ago!!)
We made her ghostie cake too..
She chose this one from the cake book we have...It looks nice and straightforward...
But cake decorating isn't one of my talents.
Add to that me forgetting that trying to ice a cake in the tropics with no aircon on is NOT a good idea... and this is what you get..
Not quite what I was going for..
But at least my daughter could see the funny side, and she says she loves it anyway!!
So today we're off to do 'Wipeout' at the local pool with some friends to celebrate!
Such good fun - I can't wait!! (it's not just for the kids!)
Anything around water is what she wants to do just now.
She's also signed up with me to do a 24hour swimathon to raise money for MS (multiple sclerosis). Our team has to have someone in the water swimming for the whole 24 hours! It's going to be exhausting but fun!
She's very excited about swimming in the middle of the night!
That's my girl!!!
Happy Birthday Annelise!
