Morning time plans

4 years ago today......

 Our world changed, 



Then we blinked and you were one.

And then we chased, wiped, trained, chased some more, played, read, and chased after even more and then you turned two.
Two to three was busy too, your imaginations took off and the world was never dull with you two around!
And so tonight is the eve of you turning four.  It's my favourite time of the day, the house is quiet, the gifts are wrapped and I get to sit and look over the pictures from the last few years, and remember all the joy you, Phinn and you, Hosea have brought to our lives.
What are my favourite things about this past year?
Listening to you play, and talk and generally be together,  It thrills my Mummy heart.
Watching you ride horses and cars and scooters up and down the street, waving sticks and talking in that low cowboy voice.
Hearing you plan what you want to do when you grow up, and it needing to be a job for "two guys" at once.
Seeing you include your little brother.
Hearing you quote long passages of scripture and singing "Hallelujah, all I have is Christ" on and off throughout the day.
And a million other things too, too many to record.
So my sweet boys, we love you and pray for the Lord to draw you close to Himself as you grow, so that no matter what you do, it is first and foremost for the glory of God.
Mummy love you up to the moon and back with donuts x

Sneak a peek

The boys have been taking about having a castle cake for the longest time now. 

Which means I have been thinking about making a castle cake for the longest time now.

Which means when it comes to actually making a castle cake you are not certain if you've bitten off more than you can chew (which was literal and figurative as there was some trial of cake last night!)

But then you are glad that
a) the boys for whom the cake is intended will see a castle cake and know that their Mummy loves them
b) camera angles are an amateur cake makers bestest friend, you don't have to show the bits that may not be working quite so well
c) making a cake means more than the end result, it also involves an evening with friends which  includes your beloved who hangs about and puts in a cheeky two penny's worth every now and again, while being willing to rummage through the Duplo late at night to find knights and horses and such.
d) fondant is yummy, and full of energy to get you through to the last minute crisis of realising there is no door on the castle, quickly making it and retaking the camera angle friendly shots!

So with out further ado, here's some sneak peeks for the preparations for the Knights of Alberta party.
I will endeavour to get some picture in of the day, but I see that Johns birthday is still not recorded so I have time!
