The non-birthday party
Posted 10:56 PM on Sat-24-Oct-2015
I set today as the date of my birthday party. I set a theme and then left it. Until pretty much today when some friends asked what was happening. And I didn't know. Whoops!So we ummed and ahhed about what to do. It was too late even this morning to really plan anything particularly wonderful. Then I got a bit down and my mind suggested that a party would be wasteful.Luckily for me, hubby took control and now we are having a wee gathering tomorrow. It's not like me not to celebrate a birthday. I like to do something and usually go all out. This year I wanted to do the same, but I just kept pushing the planning down my list so it never got done.

5th Birthday Cake
Posted 5:28 PM on Tue-7-Jul-2015
We had a family get together for Master O's birthday in the weekend as his birthday was a weekday.He requested an angry birds bomb cake, which i thought turned out pretty coolAlthough it looks neat...It didn't taste the greatest, haha, Since my youngest nephew has ciliacs i thought i would do the cake gluten free, And since i didn't have any gluten free flours etc...I thought i would give the gluten free box cake a try...not again, it was dry and well just gross, no one really ate it! haha

TinyTotts Farm - Hamilton
Posted 9:41 PM on Tue-19-May-2015
On Saturday we held A's 3rd birthday party at TinyTott's farm.  This is on Seddon Road in Hamilton, about 20 mins from the University I would say?  We could not believe our luck when we found this place.  We booked in for a party, which was $250 for 10 kids, food and experience included.  There is an extra charge per additional kids, but adults are free.  You also have the option to do your own food and pay per person $7.50 (I think including adults).  There is a minimum amount, but I can't remember what it is.  Plus - added bonus, really easy to deal with.So we spent the week worrying ourselves to bits about the weather.  It was rainy a Read More...

Minecraft Pokemon Pixelmon Party
Posted 7:47 AM on Mon-11-May-2015
A few months ago, when I asked what my daughter wanted to do for her 8th birthday, she said "A Minecraft party at home". I never hold parties at home.  It is much easier to go someplace and get them to cater and entertain, because my house is not exactly open to the public. Yet she was insistent that nowhere else would do.  So home it was.  I started to collect a few bits and pieces that would go with the theme.  Grass square placemats, bamboo look paper straws, and read blog after blog about Minecraft party ideas.  I thought I had it in the bag.Then she started playing Pixelmon - a mod pack for Minecraft that allows you to become a Pokemon trainer and catc Read More...

Minecraft Long Grass Cake or Hulk High Five?
Posted 7:30 AM on Fri-8-May-2015
Yesterday my big girl turned 8.  If the little one being 3 is surprising to me, 8 years of being a mum is even more unbelievable.  But there you go.  She was so nice to me.  We needed to keep the cake Halal so that ruled out a few of the designs she asked for (anything red was out).  But she settled on a cake that would look like this:I made up a square cake and a bunch of square cupcakes using my vegan chocolate cake mix (I omitted the vanilla to keep it Halal).  Then we iced it with a butter cream in green (I checked several sources to make sure the company and the colour numbers were ok to use).  This is what I came up with, though I think it was closer Read More...

Miss A's Cookie Monster Cake
Posted 7:11 AM on Wed-6-May-2015
OMG ladies!  I love to do this to myself!  So last night I was trying to find a relatively easy cake to make for A's daycare birthday day today.  She is the big 3!  How did that happen?  Anyway, so we stumbled on this Cookie Monster cake.  I knew three things about this cake that I would not achieve - 1. I didn't have a grass tip for icing.  So I was never going to get the fur right2. I didn't have blue colour gel, so I was never going to get the blue to that navy/royal shade3. I didn't have perfectly round marshmallows or anything that I could use for eyes....What I didn't realise was that I would undercook my first layer of the ca Read More...

Happy 7th Birthday!
Posted 11:11 AM on Fri-8-Aug-2014
Well my youngest is 7 today! I can't believe that this time 7 years ago we were in a big rush to get an epidural in so that I could quickly have a c section before miss 7 tried to make an entrance of her own. A c section was not planned, however it was the only option due to the position she was laying in.Fast forward 7 years and miss 7 is home from school today. Definitely not 100% but probably well enough to be there. All she is missing is sports day, so we have had fun cake decorating today. Something she usually misses out on.Due to work and study, I haven't had time to come up with something flash like many of you decorate for hours and hours. Those days are now long gone for Read More...

Three years old
Posted 12:33 PM on Wed-16-Jul-2014
My big girl Willow turned three last month. Doesn't time fly! I had so much fun making a little party for her, in the end her two friends were sick so only her Grandma came. We had a lot of fun though and it was the perfect chance for some pretty photos.

Sweet 16
Posted 7:54 AM on Tue-3-Jun-2014
It's official, I have survived parenting for 16 years! Take that all you nay sayers. My children are not only still alive and in MY care, but are happy, healthy, and doing well at school.Why do I say this? For any new readers, I was 16 myself when my Miss 16 was born, 8 weeks after my own sweet 16th. As you can imagine, there wasn't exactly a lot of positive thoughts about my parenting skills, being only a child still myself. I'm having great pleasure right now, in having proven you all wrong.I was very lucky that my family had faith in me. I have many many cousins. In fact I could positively say that I have more cousins than many of you combined. They never once doubted I cou Read More...
