dinosaur party!

He's three! Can't quite believe my Little is three already, and babyhood and toddlerhood officially over. And what a way to celebrate! The boy had his dinosaur party, that he so badly wanted, a purple dinosaur cake, and dinosaur tails for everyone! (that is, all of the kids - I could only find the time and energy to sew thirteen, rather than the thirty required if I sewed for the adults, too).
the happy birthday boy

There was no sweets table, gorgeously decorated, no pin the tail on the trex, no bracho-bubbles, so many of my pinned ideas will sit waiting til our next dino party (I have three boys, I am sure there will be another coming my way!).
very happy Little with his purple dino cake


Little had the best day, and love love loved his cake! He didn't like wearing his tail though, so he was the only kid there without one! Other little friends, on the other hand, didn't want to take theirs off...
I wore my new tunic that I made and keep mentioning but never photographing, and The Gherkin decided under no circumstances would he be photographed.
We had a brilliant day. Happy birthday my beautiful Little boy xoxo
