Documenting Delight: day three hundred and thirty seven {three years old}

      1.       New doll’s house
2.       Tea cup biscuits. Simple to put together and quickly demolished.
3.       Four child foodies, focusing on anything but the camera.
4.       Handmade wrapping paper.
5.       Prince Eli wearing handmade felt crown.
6.       Princess castle cake. Easier than it appeared in the Woman’s Weekly Cake book. The 35 degrees weather the day before made icing it, um….. challenging. Think melting castle.
7.       All eyes on the cake.
8.       Icing trumps the actual cake. Everytime.
9.       Savouring the sugar.
In classic hostess style, I didn't get as many photos of Harper's special day as I would have liked.  Pop over to  livinglovinglaughing to see more photos.

    And to you my dear, happy 3 years of parenting this sweet girl. I know it has been a rollercoaster for you at times but I admire you for your positive perspective. You inspire me mama.


    1. Andi, thank you for your sweet and supportive words. You have nailed it, it has been a rollercoaster ride. So much joy mixed in with challenges that we are still all working through. Thank you for supporting me during this time. xx
      P.S. In addition to her dolls house we bought Harper a pink frilly dress that we thought she would want to wear to her princess party. She wasnt a fan of my choice and opted for the blue spotty number in her wardrobe :P
