Birthday fun

Sunday my baby turned 7.  Toby woke up to a pancake breakfast in bed and he was so happy.  After church he opened his presents, as he only managed to open one before we left for church.  Sunday afternoon was a family afternoon with my Aunt Desley and Uncle John staying with us and my sister Gabby and husband Neil joined us in celebrating Toby's birthday.

Toby decided he wanted a chocolate cake with Maltesers and strawberries on it.  So I added a bit of flare with chocolate cream and strawberries in between the layers of cake and then drizzled on a chocolate ganache and decorated with the Maltesers and strawberries.  Lets just say it was rather decadent and only a thin slice was necessary.

Today Toby had a few friends over after school to celebrate, they jumped on the trampoline and decorated cupcakes and pretty much spent the afternoon laughing at the sounds jelly oranges make when you slurp them up.

Toby is such a sweet gentle spirit, he is lots of fun, full of energy and loved by many.

These photos remind me of a Shirley Hughes picture book - my favourite kind of home life - happy and cluttered with life and good things.
A belated happy birthday to Toby.
