Birthday Celebrations

Our family has lots of birthdays between 1 November and Christmas and yesterday we celebrated 3 of them with a lunch at Mum and Dad's batch.  Zac's (One on 11 Nov) belated Timaru celebration, M's 6th yesterday and NanNan's (76) today.  We probably should have had another two stars on the cake as M's Mum and Nana were also November birthdays on the 16th and 23rd respectively.  My girls made the delicious KitKat M & M cake - a serious dose of Chocolate overload.  They did a wonderful job.
 The birthday boy and girls.
  Mum and Dad and three of their 9 Great Grandchildren.  I am sure the photographer they were looking at will have a great photo.....
 ... and what a cute trio they are.
 And the step Card I made for Mum below.
 made with Prima Tea Thyme collection patterned papers and Wild Orchid flowers with a resin dove.

I made the card at the last Embellish It crop and unfortunately I haven't got anything done since.  This is a crazy busy time of year at work and elsewhere but I am sure it will be like that for lots of people.  Tonight we have been back out to the batch and surprised Mum by joining them for tea on her real birthday. 

This weekend I am looking forward to going to the Mary Poppins Musical.  Can't quite believe it at the moment though with so much to do.   

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Your visits are truly appreciated.
Until next time.....
