A lovely birthday party!

Ethan celebrated his SIXTH birthday today.

I can hardly believe where the time has gone.

He woke early this morning and couldn't wait to open his presents.

I love his expression here.

Some Bakugans (did I say that right?)

Then the family all enjoyed morning tea at a gorgeous park with the most amazing winter day.

Yes, that's right - this in winter where we live!

My six year old!

Happy Birthday to you!

My food colouring didn't turn out red like I was hoping, but no-one seemed to mind.

Joshua happily blew bubbles until they ran out.

And we all had a lovely day!

Happy birthday to Joshua ! It's so true : children do grow up soooo fast !

Love your winters ! Wearing sandals and going to the beach are certainly not activities that Canadians do in their own country during winters ! Enjoy your winter, Leanna !

Lovely photos leanne - I esp like the second photo. Love those green PJs and him trying to open present!
After spending 4 years of -20 degrees, scraping layers of thick ice of the windsheild, no sun for weeks at a time, your face literally hurting when you step outside to something colder than our home freezer, and huge piles of dirty wet frozen sludge on the side of all the roads, this winter is the way to go!!
(as you can tell I had a really hard time getting used to that kind of life, which is why I am back at home now :) and will never take it for granted again!)
look forward to seeing this stuff scrapped!

Great photos, hope you all had a great day!
I had the same problem with the icing - if you want butter frosting you have to beat and beat and beat until its the whitest you can get, otherwise it will always be pink or salmon coloured... otherwise just mix pure icing sugar with a touch of water and then you can get a redder icing! (it won't be nice and fluffy, just a smooth icing)
