My little girl turns 3


Big week here. Jenna turned 3!!!! Seems amazing that it was only 3 years ago that I felt more pain than I have ever felt in my life :)

So we got up first thing and did the present thing in bed, and she ran into the kitchen (at about 6am.....) to find her butterflies. She loved them. Made cupcakes for kinder. Note in the picture our crappy kitchen, our cat on the window sill, the butterflies hanging from the roof, her new tinkerbell jammies, Shane cooking, wow - very layered photo!!!!

OK - so apparently at kinder you have to provide "something" for 25 kids and 5 teachers every birthday. Well you dont have to, but its pretty bad form if you dont. We decided that little mini cupcakes would be the way to go, had a couple of practise runs, and here is the final result.

I feel completely terrible, as its the first kids birthday that I haven't done the whole womans weekly b-day cake with butter icing and all, specially since she wanted a "strawberry chocolate butterfly cake please mummy". Pressure......

Keep in mind that I had 3 major assignments due on her birthday - give me some slack! Oh - even worse, I have lectures all day Thurs - I get home at about 9:30pm.

But she had a great day, and apparently the cakes went down very well, specially since they didn't have papers around them, so the teachers were happy ;)
