Yesterday Daddy had gone on a rare day out fishing with his friends and the Little ones and I were home alone. Little 1 declared that today was Humphreys' birthday and so I decided to have some fun with it.
I suggested we have a little tea party for him in the afternoon and we make some cakes, the girls loved the idea, they wanted to get started straight away so I gave them some utensils to play with and they had a great game going pretending to bake with first playfood and then Lego!
When it was time to make the cakes the girls were keen to help with the weighing and mixing and spooning out and soon they were in the oven, once they were cooled we got decorating with melted chocolate and chocolate buttons, yum.
Little 1 set up a picnic while the chocolate was hardening, she did a great job wrapping pretend presents in blankets and setting out play food as well as setting up a little music on a mini music player.
We sang, danced, ate cake and the girls played musical statues until Daddy arrived home just in time for the blowing out of the candle!
A little bit of make believe family fun on a cold winters day. Happy Birthday Humphrey.
