Sweet Sunday


Yesterday was my little Bluebird's birthday. Our Sunshine girl turned 7! What a beautiful age 7 is, a what a sweet & loving daughter we have. Here she is with her birthday doll, Rebecca.


Sunday smiled all day and had the happiest time. We had presents in the morning, all the family sitting around, so lovely to be together. Sunday loves purple so there was a bit of a purple theme happening, especially with her new bunny, Lavender.

Soon it was time for her party so we jumped in the car, with some of her friends, and headed off to Ballarat for some bowling!



It was a bit of a hoot! A great place to have a party, really organised and fun and Sunday loved the Happy Birthday banner.

The girls had a ball (!) and so did Charlotte and I. Thank goodness for Bowling Captain, Charlotte, who virtually ran the party, what a superstar. It's been so fantastic having her around these holidays, I'm pretending she isn't going back to school today.

It was so fun to have this lovely bunch of girls at the party. All different, all good friends.


They enjoyed a party lunch and then cake!



Happy Birthday dear Sunday, happy birthday to you.
It's such a beautiful memory to look back to the time she was born. Rushing through the dark night to get to the hospital. The amazingly quick labour (1.5 hours) and the thrill I got to suddenly have this dark haired angel in my arms, both of us shocked and amazed. (She came so quickly that no one was looking at the clock so we had to guess her time of birth.) Since that night she has filled my life with happiness, her dear ways, her gentle & curious nature, her love of life. She really is a special girl.

Unfortunately the birthday girl became sick late in the day with a high temperature. She is in bed now and has missed the first day of school. Poor little chook, she looks quite washed out and pale. Anyway, she will be better soon and at least she got to enjoy her birthday. What did you get up to on the weekend? It's freezing here in Daylesford today, winter seems to have come early. Hope you have a happy week dear friends, see you soon xo

happy birthday to your big 7 yr old sweetie. she looked pleased as punch with her amazing doll that i notice has more than one outfit. and her very own fav colour bunny what a treat! reading this it strikes me how much of a juggle it must be to give everyone in your big family enough attention especially if one of the kids is 'quieter' than the others. looks like you did an amazing job of making sunday's sunday a realy special one (hooray for chief party assistant charlotte!). speaking of big sis, huge www hug to mum coping with her disappearing today (a theraputic op shop session?) xx
