10 things you didn't know about me...

There's a bit of a fun game going around at the moment whereby I tell you 10 things you didn't know about me...

1. Growing up we had a chihuahua named Poppet, who lived for 16 years and I still miss her 15 years later.
2. I've never had a broken bone (and touch wood I don't).
3. I hate geckos
4. I mainly listen to country
5. I am very unco-ordinated (so it's very surprising I haven't broken a bone)
6. I always have washing to be folded up ~ it's a vicious cycle
7. I drive a hummer
8. I had an emergency appendectomy when my youngest son was only 5 weeks old.
9. I love to browse antique shops
10. I think McDonalds make the best chai latte!

A 3rd birthday Carnival Celebration

What a gorgeous carnival party for gorgeous little Christopher, who turned 3 recently.  His mum, Denin-Lee from Spoon and Fork Cookies and Cakes did a fantastic job with the details for the theme ~ amazing cake, wonderful dessert table, lots of games and fun and the most divine balloon cookie pops and bunting cookies.

So many yummy treats on the dessert table, and guests also enjoyed popcorn, then hot dogs and pies with mushy peas, followed by the chocolate mudcake birthday cake.  

Keeping with the festive carnival theme guests got to choose their own prizes using tickets that they'd won playing games.

Amazing cookies!

What a gorgeous popcorn girl ~ box from Sweet Little Birdy and popcorn bags were a present sent from America

Denin chose a carnival theme for Christopher because she likes the festive feel of the theme and because it's fun for all age groups.  Looks like it was a hit and everyone definately had fun ~ great job Denin and family and friends and Happy Birthday Christopher x
