now onto the post about my lili turning 8...can you believe it??
it feels like only yesterday when she was born only to be whisked away to special care unit for 2 nights of antibiotics and observation. i had told the nurses the choices of names we were tossing up and they brought back a photo of her with the words lily or lucy? at that moment mick walked in with a big bunch of lillies and the name was decided. so on her birthday (and i think from now on) i presented her with...
as is tradition we all gather on our bed to open the presents, each family member presenting her with something.
lili's main present was to have her ears pierced. she chose pretty purple studs and she looks so very very sweet with them in.
another tradition in our house, as i am sure it is in many households, is that the birthday girl/boy gets to choose dinner for the night...no MacDonald's for this 8 year old oh no lili chose hogs breath cafe! mick and i didn't mind too much as it really is value for money and we quite like the meals (only our second time but it is worth going again). the girls ate all of their food and mick and i enjoyed a succulent steak.
we decided to share cake the next day with those who could make it...
i made a mud cake and just happened to have some fishy edibles in the cupboard so it became a muddy dam instead of the ocean :)
and the back view of my father and my brother in law Michael (father of the 3 girls in this picture)
i love birthdays and will always do everything in my power to make them special no matter what.
