A Couple of Celebrations

It's been party party party the last few days.  On Saturday my friend Karen turned 60 and I was invited to her family celebration.  You can tell we're getting older as it was a lunch-time event, not night-time :)  It was such a lovely afternoon.  The kids had a great time on the jumping castle (including the birthday girl).

On Monday our baby boy turned 30.

On Monday night we all went out for dinner - delicious food at a restaurant in Newtown called Bloodwood.

John decorated Michael's zombie birthday cake.  It looked pretty fierce.

Walking back to the car from the restaurant we came across this unusually decorated light pole.

And Peta noticed this jacket in the window of the Button Shop - she thought I could whip it up for her birthday in early August in colours to match her wedding dress.

Last night it was my turn to host the stitching girls so I decided to make a cake for Karen - this design is from the 1980 Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book.

The girls thought it was a hoot!
