That day is well and truly behind us.
It started with the unveiling of "The Dress"
My birthday twin, 5y/o niece Sarah was in awe.
With birthday presents out of the way her brother Mathias came to me with a card.
It said a few things about how he enjoys coming on holidays to Ireland and "would I please be his new godmother ?" He hasn't seen his original godmother in years and he felt sad that his peers had godmothers and he didn't. Of course I accepted. I had been informed about his intentions and came prepared.
I am obviously not an official godmother as I don't do the 'god' thing, but I'll take my new title very serious. I buy extravagant presents.
Mathias loves his Lego and he's now also into Star Wars.
It did take him all day to put his star ship together, but he's so proud and pleased.
He even helped his sister with her Cinderella Lego.
Erm ... she doesn't want to wear anything else than her ball gown.
In the early evening we had a small party for our birthday.
Swept off her feet by Prince Sigi.
Language really is no barrier between kids.
Feeling a bit lethargic after the meal.
More Belles of the ball.
Many thanks to my friend Jo-Anne for the birthday cake.
And Pammy for the biscuits.
Oh ! One of my birthday presents were 3 young chooks and a cockerel.
