Johnny and Snowy's Party

I keep looking at all your blogs with the snow and keep thinking where's ours. Just to prove it here's our weather for Sunday.

It's so odd, we keep being told it's coming, but still - no snow. So we're very cold with blue skies. I prefer this, but the kids would love a bit of proper snow fun. Without snow to play in they decided birthdays were long overdue for two of their friends, Johnny and Snowy. Johnny the monkey has been eldest buns firm friend ever since she was nine months old. We spotted him in a charity shop window as we drove past one day, so had to go back the next day to make sure we could get him. She sat outside with her daddy in her buggy while I went in. The moment I handed him to her she hugged him to her so tightly you could see a new love was developing. I love that my girls have special friends who are there for them each night just when they need a snuggly cuddle, or when they are upset or ill. Bobo was always there for me, Johnny for eldest bun and little bun has a gang of three, Pom, Willa and Charlie. This is why it was Snowy's birthday today as she felt the others couldn't share properly.
When I came down on Sunday morning they had already been busy putting up signs.

The birthday boys were in their finery all ready on the sofa ready for the day ahead.

My job was to make some party cakes. I'm not allowed to cover them in seriously pink or white icing and 100's and 1,000's as I would like. I love gooey, sickly cakes, the buns prefer them pretty dry, raisin ones being their favourite. Looking at this picture they look pretty dry in that been in the oven too long way. They tasted good though despite this.

When the party was over eldest bun sat down and created this fantastic beach with a small seagull on the top of the mountains. Seagulls are big around here. We might no longer be in Brighton, but Mr Bun's love for the Seagulls, Brighton's football team, goes with him. Both the buns are junior seagulls and me - well I'm a disappointment - I absolutely hate football, even the noise of it. I do have a small seagulls sticker on my car windscreen though. It was a present from Mr Bun to protect me while I'm driving, now out of superstition I'd never take it off.

As a bit of crafting seemed to be going on I fancied joining in so had a quick look in Green Crafts for Kids and found how to make these lovely flowers. Got all the bits and bobs out and off they went. Now I fancy making a bouquet of pink or red roses so that we can always have some in the house.

  2. Lovely party... I think it's so important that you have a well loved toy as a child. I'm planning on making a bear for my brother's new baby. I had Mrs Mouse when I was little... my mum knitted her for me... she knitted me another one a couple of years ago when she discovered the knitting pattern in the back of the cupboard!! :)

  3. I came over from a link on kitschen pink... you have a delightful blog! Love your photos and your clever crafting. I wish I could send you some of our snow - we have had it hanging around for a couple of months!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
