a sweet award...

a few days ago i was given this award from babalisme, she is a wonderful illustrator and designs heaps of cutesy, frou frou, whimsical treats that she shares with anyone who wants them! i have used her babushka sweeties, in fact they were a feature on our cupcake stand today.
This Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee.In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns...
this is so sweet and the words actually make me think of heaps of gorgeous bloggers. i know that some of you have heaps of awards and i understand if you don't take it from me but i just want to name you here so that you know that without your support this blog would not mean as much.
here goes

i know that i included more than i should and left out heaps... if you like the award and want it take it with my blessing!
mister moo has been away this weekend. he went up to his dads with his brother for ANZAC day to wear their medals with pride at the local dawn service. i am happy for him to be with his family but us girls miss him like crazy!! claudia crawled into bed with me at 4 this morning asking for him and mia has had a sad face this evening cause she misses him so much. they are really lucky to have such a wonderful daddy and i am lucky to have such a great friend and husband.
in honour of a girls weekend we had our favourite family visit... the trees. i have known julie since 1987 and her girls and my girls get on like a house on fire. anyhow they came for cupcakes followed by a sausage sizzle followed by a bath then popcorn and jelly tips (ice creams) while they watched kungfu panda. what a great night we have had. and of course the mums caught up on all the goss!

i didn't take many photos and actually got no photos of the cupcakes but here is a pic of the empty cupcake stand.

this cupcake stand lives on the hutch and the girls adorn it with all sorts of things.

there is babalisme's tea party set download.

here they are bathed and enjoying a movie together... imagine if they were all mine!!!

now that everyone is tucked in and sound asleep, i am going to have a nice warm shower and drift off to dream land.

night night %*_*%

p.s. i am not a millionaire

I think that is my first award! I'll take it, it's cute, thank you!

I'm assuming you just put the picture on the blog with the same description of it as you wrote, and then give it to someone, but if i'm wrong, let me know.

p.s. I am sure the post verification people have a real warped sense of humour, you know where you have to put the code in, the one for this post is DOWNER..I refuse to believe it, to you think it will work if I type in HAPPY instead?

Wow, thank you so much!
It's strange - I've written a poem about growing into a tall tree, not so long ago... There's also a text by my favourite author and friend about little oaks starting to grow in her garden.
