It doesn't seem long ago that I was holding a very tiny Anna in my arms and thanking fate for giving me such a perfect baby girl. Anna is always so cheerful but also as an innate sense of mischief and fun. From early on I learnt to listen out for the silence- a sure sign that she would be getting herself in a right pickle!
Well here is Anna on Saturday morning- my big beautiful four year old! Big piles of presents, mostly craft equipment, lots of Hello Kitty- lots of excitement! We had a family day on Saturday and a tea of pizza and cake- Anna's choice. I made chocolate fridge cake as I find my kids never eat sponge. Anna is looking concerned as a was sparkler in the pile of cake has snapped and is drooping onto the precious cake. We had a Hello Kitty party on Sunday with five little friends. We did try to play some party games but the children were so much happier doing the craft activities which I'd prepared. It was the most relaxed party I have ever hosted. I am sure this is in part down to having my diamond parents around helping out, but also due to the children really enjoying making and doing. How cool is that?
I did make a traditional sponge for the party, I bought an inexpensive Hello Kitty toy for the top which Anna could play with after the event. I decided to put her in a garden with some flowers and yes....the obligatory green icing!!! I have always enjoyed spending time with Anna an as she grows that pleasure just grows and grows.
