Happy birthday, Carla

Today is another special day for me - no nothing to do with the start of the financial year, although that has been mentioned many a time as we have celebrated our younger daughter's birthday.  It is special as on this day I became a Mum for the 4th time, and our second  daughter was born.



Happy birthday to my gorgeous, amazing, tenacious, daughter, Carla.  I am confused as to her age.  If her big sister says she is 26 and there is 10 years between them, that makes Carla sweet 16.  Problem is she has two sons who are 7 and 6 years old.  Hmmm.  No, that just doesnt seem right.  They really will have to sort out their ages for me wont they.
  

She is such an awesome Mum to her boys.

I took Kai and Charlie shopping for a birthday gift for Mum.  We went to Bunnings - they are always keen to buy her tools and other household hardware.  This time they decided she needed a hose.  Not the green ones, the silver (grey) one looked good but not the right one. They chose the blue one, as "she would like a blue hose."  Then a nozzle - it had to be blue also,  to match the hose.
.

I think she is impressed with her hose and nozzle.




 After that they needed to go to Spotlight to buy Mum a heart - totally their idea.  We arrived at Spotlight and Charlie headed off, a boy on a mission.  He stopped at every heart he could see - in the cake decorating section - no not the right one.  In the beads section - didnt find the right one.  In the wool section he found some felt hearts, but not what he was after.  Finally he found the wooden ones that he could paint.  4 in the packet meant 2 each. He was happy with that.
  
They iced and decorated the birthday cake..
  
  
   
Looks good.  


Have a wonderful day Carla.  Enjoy using your new blue hose.


Love you heaps.
