Happy Birthday Mum!

Today was Mum's birthday and we went to Prezzo for lunch (one of our favourite restaurants) If you look carefully in this photo, you may just see me taking the photo! Proves I was there too!
We always have a bit of a laugh when we go out (can't take us anywhere lol!)
This afternoon, after Emily got home from school, the girls and I went round to Mum and Dad's for birthday tea and cake. Kay, Theresa, Tyler and Alyssa were also there and Tyler was in top form ;o)
He helped (Great) Grandma open her presents and handed the torn off wrapping paper to (Great) Grandpa who was standing close by for just that purpose.
Here he was telling Grandma all about how her mug had come from his breaking workshop - ie. a shop with breakables (I think). He had lots to say about this and how careful you had to be in that workshop. It was really sweet!
His next task was to help Grandma blow out her birthday candles (a few times ;o) ). When we finished singing happy birthday to her and were doing the Hip Hip Hooray part, he took over saying Hip Hip and everyone else had to say Hooray! It makes me realise he's growing up, he's not our baby anymore.
Mum had found some puzzles that my children had when they were little and had brought them out for Tyler. He lay on the floor placing the right shapes on the pictures and really seemed to enjoy it.
Another picture to put the shapes on.
Alyssa, on the other hand, slept in her carseat, through virtually the whole thing.
I had said she would wake just as we had to leave and sure enough, she did! I stayed a few minutes longer to get some photos of her in her cute little outfit.
She really is so sweet and is giving such lovely little smiles at the moment.
And, although this one is blurred, I had to add it because the look on Alyssa's face is priceless!!
I hope you enjoyed your birthday Mum, I certainly did ;o). Now we'll have to look forward to next years!

My happy mail

These arrived in the post for me this morning - have had a quick look through the Wedding Photography book and I think it's going to be very useful. Looking forward to sitting down and starting to read it properly. As for ER, I blame Ruth! Ruth started me watching ER by sending me Season 1 and I'm slowly working my way through the seasons - and thoroughly enjoying them. Thanks Ruth. xx

My Girls :)

These photos were taken yesterday. Claire is on leave this week and had bought herself the new Alice in Wonderland game for DS. She's obviously multi tasking though seeing as she has her computer on her lap as well ;)
Emily was still off school but as this was her third day on antibiotics she was starting to feel a little bit better. She went back to school today but is still not feeling 100%. I'm hoping that she'll feel a little bit better with each day that passes. Think her antibiotics last until Thursday morning.
