We made it!

This weekend has been one of the busiest we've had in a long time! In addition to the usual Christmas-related silliness that happens at this time of year, my little one turned 1 on Friday! For this birthday, we took the relatively-low-key-morning-tea-time-in-the-park option, which worked fabulously. There was play equipment nearby to keep the older kids entertained, and there was proper coffee (supplied by us) to keep the adults happy.

And I made and decorated a cake!
Which I thought was yummy, and so did uber goober!
I managed to finish the cardi in time, too, but it was a decidedly chilly summer's day and the lovely short sleeves in the cardi weren't going to do the job. Oh well, there'll be another opportunity, I'm sure!
I also somewhere found the time and a (semi) willing sucker to help me wind my yarn, which means I've now started a time-pressured project. Hopefully I'll find the time to finish it!

Congratulations on making it to one! We had our party a week ago which all went well. We chose the at home option, but kept it to family so it wasn't too hectic. Love your cake, it is so lovely and bright! Pity about the cardi, she looks gorgeous though (and did she love the cake? Mine scoffed heaps of it!)

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter.
We had a remarkably similar weekend here in my part of the world :)
