She is calling it her discovery quilt...discovering a new pattern, or favourite block everyday.
Her birthday party was fun; exhausting, but fun. First I filled them full of sugar, and a few strawberries with chocolate fondue.
They entertained themselves from that point until I did the grumpy mummy go to sleep talk at quarter past midnight...I think they were all finally asleep by 1am....and up at 6am.
Crepes with strawberries, raspberries and or blueberries plus or minus (most plus I think) maple syrup for breakfast.
And to top it off (the sugar high I mean) we had cake.
Rainbow cake ~*
As we sent them on their way we gave them each a little present to take home
After they were all gone I had a little sleep.
* I got the rainbow cake recipe from here but substituted 200g natural yoghurt for 250ml of the milk as per the clever little trick here to make the colours vibrant without adding loads of colouring. I didn't used Swiss buttercream instead opting for Italian meringue...just as much sugar but no butter.
