Al fresco, the way I like it most. And a special occasion too because it was Misi’s birthday. He’s closer to forty than thirty now. There were few of our favourite people, beautiful weather, lots of delicious food and great fun. Everybody tried fortune cookies, men undertook barbecuing, women sipped sangria and children ingurgitated big amounts of eclairs.
Al fresco, czyli tak, jak lubie najbardziej. A i okazja specjalna bo Misiego urodziny. Juz mu blizej czterdziestki niz trzydziestki. Bylo kilku naszych ulubionych ludzi, piekna pogoda, duzo pysznego jedzenia i swietnej zabawy. Wszyscy sprobowali ciasteczka z wrozba, mezczyzni wzieli na siebie grilowanie, kobiety chlodzily sie sangria a dzieci pochlanialy ptysie.
Luckily, “too many cooks spoil the broth” didn’t stack up.
Powiedzenie “gdzie kucharek szesc…” tym razem sie nie sprawdzilo 🙂
The biggest attraction of the day was “sly fox”. They gain years but daddies do stay young in spirit 😀 .
Ale najwiekszym hitem dnia byla zabawa baba jaga patrzy. Moze i lat przybywa ale tatusiowie jeszcze bardzo mlodziduchem 😀
While other kids are starting schools, our little Rosie spent her first day in creche yesterday. She was brave and cute and stole her carers’ hearts already. She didn’t cry at all when Misi left her there. She asked her carer for coins. I had to explain later on that Anabel always puts some coins in her jacket pocket when getting ready for preschool so Rosie probably thinks it essential to have coins in creche 😀 . She is already known there for her amazing appetite. She ate DOUBLE! portion of toast and yoghurt and had no problem eating all her lunch two hours later. She cried when I collected her because she wanted to take Barney soft toy home with her. She kept saying: “Barney as well, Barney as well” 🙂 .
And here she is, my little Indiana on her first day of creche:
We celebrated that day in american style, with “Shrek” and a bowl of popcorn 😉
Last weekend Anabel turned four. Unfortunately, I had to work all day but we had a little private celebration in the evening. Misi surprised me with this little cake and Anabel was super excited telling us to hide and shout “Surprise!” and to sing her “Happy birthday” song. She even patiently ate all slice of her cake before demanding her present 😀 .
We’re planning a bigger birthday celebration but rigth now we have crazy busy schedules with no days off together so it will have to wait till next week. I don’t think she’ll mind celebrating it twice, anyway 😉
And here is a cake I made really fast yesterday to bring with us to preschool today. I was looking for some castle cake ideas for a while and decided to use Louise’s idea. It’s quite simple and I love a fact that everything is edible.
I had a chance to use my new flour sifter I treated myself to as a prize for making that wedding cake 😉 I love it’s retro look.
