Birthday girl.

My kids birthdays are always a little bittersweet for me. While I love watching them grow, on their birthdays I can't help but wonder where the years have gone :(

Today my girl turned nine. Nine! She was so very excited, and it was wonderful to get caught up in her enthusiasm.

Ice skating with her friends was such a blast...we had a fantastic time! She invited just a few of her closest friends, and their families stayed as well to join in the fun...I think I was probably the most uncoordinated of the Mums who skated but hey, it was my first time on ice skates :)

We put together some cute party bags..

...and made matching cupcakes...



...which were yummy! The party cake was an echidna, complete with chocolate spines...


...and we later added some coconut grass to finish it off.
Tonight I'm feeling pains in places I didn't know existed, but my girl has gone to bed with a smile on her face, and lots of beautiful memories. Happy birthday Lydia...I love you sweet girl :)
