Happy Birthday Danielle!

Dani turned the big 3 today!

The day started as other Tuesdays do. Celine went off to school, Blake and Dani off to kindy. Nana, Bella & myself off to shopping. Unfortunately, kindy called me just as we got back from the supermarket to ask me to collect Dani who had developed gunk in her eyes. I had to hurriedly clear out all the shopping but what was in the boot  just so Dani would be able to get to her seat.

Presents and cake

Thankfully Dani took a nap that afternoon (generally not a good sign with my kids who don’t nap as a guideline) allowing me time to wrap her presents and get the house tidied and begin to decorate for celebrating. The blue teddy bear cake with white icing and pink trimming, which I had baked and decorated the day before, just required the chocolate writing and candles placed on them. The balloons and streamers went up after I picked up Blake and Celine.

Presents were opened as soon as Daddy came home from work and Nana joined us for the evening. Dinner was mini pies, saveloy sausages and chips. Easy finger foods for a laid back family only party. The birthday cake was eaten straight after and then the kids got ready for bed. We read Dani’s new book that she got for her birthday as the bedtime story and then the kids all went to bed.

It was a relatively quiet day for a birthday but there it is. Dani’s 3rd birthday in a nutshell.
