Grandies visits and birthday

I do love Grandie's birthdays.  Kai had his 8th birthday yesterday.  Such a gorgeous age.

As soon as he was home from school he dived into making his new lego models - a Batman one, and 2 boats.  Such concentration as he worked through the instructions and completed them.



 Charlie offered a bit of overseeing advice.

 These boys love the cakes their Mum makes for their birthdays.  Kai chose a castle.  We found a silicone form in the shape of a castle at KMart, so that solved the shape rather well.  Once it was iced they had fun directing the decoration with all forms of sweets.  It was a delicious cake.
It had blue jelly for the water in the moat.  Love those giant's footsteps leading to the drawbridge.

But the absolute highlight for them was finding these little creatures waiting outside for them when they woke up.


We have these 2 Grandies - Sammy and Henry, staying for a few days.

They are leaving tomorrow for Sydney, so it will be back to a quiet house for a few weeks.

I do love our Grandies!!!!  Did I tell you all that before?  Probably, but that's ok.

How lovely, such a great cake. I remember how much enjoyment my son used to get from his Lego models, still have a huge bag of it, couldn't leave that behind.
