Party Time!!!

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, May 09, 2010

What do you get when Mother's Day and a birthday collide?  You get the most awesome family-packed-party day ever.

Somehow Miss 6's "non-party" year ended up being rather fabulous... including two family get-together's (with special aunties, cousins and grandparents) with birthday presents galore and 2 birthday cakes!

Rather spoilt if you ask me (but also rather caring letting her little sister help blow out the candles).

So Happy Mother's Day to all the awesome Mum's out there - and even to you women who aren't mothers, I love to honour you on Mother's Day too, because all women have that amazing gift of bringing that caring, mothering touch to everyones lives when it is needed.

Mum Drake (my mother-in-law), thank you for being such a wonderful Mum and Grandmother to us all.  You are such a neat lady and I am always inspired by your cooking/baking, singing, faith, thoughtfulness and caring heart (not to forget that you still enjoy jumping on the trampoline with your grandkids and running around the house playing chasey).  Check out her delicious trifle below...

And to my Mum, you are such a special mother and friend.  You are always there to laugh with (we seem to do a bit too much of that at times), talk to and always ready to lend a hand.  Your strong faith in Jesus has inspired me from a young age, your heart for the hurting has taught me to care for others and your wisdom has been invaluable.  Love you lots.

And Happy Birthday to my precious May.  Six years old and going on sixteen - argh!  Love you so much!!!

p.s. I will post pics of her Littlest Petshop Pool Party Cake tomorrow (made by her very clever Dad).

p.p.s. I think I ate too much cake.
