Birthday treats, cake, cookies Valentine's gift and mummy love.

I have to say firstly a big thank you to all of you that are going to take part in my heart swap. And its not to late to join in, just click on the heart cupcake to the right of this post and leave me your comment and blog name. I'll be sorting you in to pairs on the 10th March. It's the first swap I've put together and I'm looking forward to it.

On a heart theme, here is the birthday cake i made of for Miss Molly's 4th last week. I had to layer the hearts right up to her knickers lol to cover her bum and any embarrassment hehe!

I also did a little bit of DIY on her top, sewing on a piece of pink polka dot fabric and pretty glitter buttons. I think I'll leave London fashion week until next year though lol it's a bit slap happy. Molly loves it and that's all that matters and i had the most fun making it.

And here she is he finished cake, well nearly you see this photo was taken by me a few days after the party, all the others came out very orange due to poor light but you can just see the back of her dress is missing lol well we couldn't not give our party guesses a piece or 2 to eat lol

You get the idea of what it did look like, i hope. Very yummy indeed with a cuppa and well worth seeing the look on Molly's face the first time she saw it. Bless, a big awww! "mummy you made it for me" and then lots of bouncing around the dining room lol so a big hit i think.

We found this beautiful little card in a lovely shop at Whitstable last year and i have been waiting all this time to give it to her. I even got one for Daisy in a different style for her 3rd and am going to put them both in a frame as a keepsake.

So the bunting, balloons and happy birthday and biscuit banners where hang.
Miss Molly was up at her normal time of 7-7.30ish lol and downstairs to open her presents. Thank you Grandma for the fab Charlie and Lola knickers, they're great.
We got Molly these gorgeous CK wellies that she'd had her eye on ever since she'd looked through the new catalogue with me. She has good taste lol They are for all the outings that the playgroup do in the morning sessions, she has now started going a full day on Weds and a morning on Friday's. We thought they'd be a nice way of saying to her that she's getting a big girl now and needs some grown up looking wellies for all the walks she'll be doing. I think it broke my heart more when i dropped her off for her first full day, she hopped off in with a little smile and a small look of oh mummy don't go, but settled in fabulously and can't wait to do it again this week. Oh why do they have to grow up?

Anyway on to another present, inside here was a cute pink till a fab gift from Nanny and Grandad in Ireland. Big kisses and hugs blown across the sea to you both from Molly x x x

Some of the lovely cards she got, i need no excuse to put up one of my washing lines and use the dotty pegs lol if you click on the photo for a better look the card right in the middle was lovingly made by my very own Mummy. It's full of cupcakes, cake, tea and a cute teddy. Mum you are a clever thing, it's fab x

Now you might be wondering where are all the photos from the party, well in all the fun we didn't really take any good ones for sharing lol just got to court up in the fun of the afternoon (sorry). We did get a video of everyone singing happy birthday to Mollycupcakes and I'll pop it on another post because it takes forever to upload. A big thank you to everyone that left her birthday wishes and the play food from her Auntie Sam, Uncle Paul and Ava, was just right for her till. And a big thank you for all the vouchers, other presents and money she got. Especially little Granny, who is recovering wonderfully. Kisses for you xxx
Molly had a fabulous time and still had lots of energy left the next day.
Below is some next day party fun being had by the cupcakes, just a few balloons and lots of bouncing. I wish i had their energy at 4.30pm on a Sunday afternoon. lol

On the Monday afternoon we did some cookie decorating, always a good fun thing to do. You can see Daisy's right into it, working her way through the sugar strands. She went a little crazy after that lol just in time for Daddy to come home, sorry Ben!
I know Valentine's day seems a while ago now but I've been waiting for the right light to get out and share my lovely gift from Ben.
A beautiful willow tree (pussy paws) is what i used to call them when i was a little cupcake lol and i used to pull them off and fill my pockets given half a chance before getting court hehe!
It is a wonderful gift because it will be also be used at our wedding reception as the wishing tree, where our guests can hang their wish, wishes for us on. And to get all slushy on you, it will grow everyday, week, month and year just as my love for Ben does. Thank you my darling i truly love you. X

I'll leave you now with a bit of Mummy love, just in time for the forthcoming Mother's day. What more could i ask for than 2 big kisses from my little cupcakes hehe! x x

Hope your weekend was good and filled with family time and a little bit of you time. Ours had country walks, a church and shoe shopping in it. What did you do?

It looks like a wonderful time was had by all. What gorgeous cards, fabulous cake and those wellies are darn cute. Birthdays are supposed to be filled with exactly what you filled Molly's with. And I'm loving your tree and its meaning.x

You did a great job of Molly's cake no wonder she loved it! Her wellies are gorgeous and love her pink net skirt. That's a sweet idea for your willow tree and love your last photo of the three of you!

What a lovely post, you sound like such a nice mummy! Love the cake. I'm a sucker for lovely cards so I really liked seeing those too. The wellies and tutu look beautiful!

I told my eldest today that I'd asked if she can do a full day at preschool (she should be OK if her best friend/apparent future husband is there!) and she said "I don't want to go without you Mummy, I like eating my lunch with YOU" awwwww
