would have turned out like this.........
Oliver's requested birthday menu was Jackie's breadsticks.
and chips, chicken and rice with butter. Plus the mandatory fizz that we only have on special occasions.
Now I had to take a photo of the cake I made or my siblings would not believe that I did this. Tammy lent me her Women's Weekly Birthday cake book and this is Robert, or is it Rodney the Robot.
I know I am usually the boring old square cake maker (and while your at it leave it in the tin while you blow out the candles) kind of Mum, but I felt bad that the kids had never experienced a 'real' birthday cake so here it is........ I know miracles never cease!!
Showing off his pressies
gumbootsSo here are some things about Oliver that you may or may not know. I can't wait for him to read this when he grows up................
Loves a good dress-up.
The product of having 2 older sisters.
You know when he is tired with the two in the mouth-1up the nose routine.
This is just cute
Oh that hair - from this.........(Simon had just styled it via the vacuum hose - don't kids love that trick!)
Loves his brother.And has always loved his bed - started sleeping through at 3wks and never looked back. Still goes to bed at 6.30pm and never gets up once he is in bed and is asleep within 5 mins.
Oliver you are my hero..............
