Eleven on the Eleventh


Emily celebrated her 11th birthday on the 11th last week!

She had a great day. It started early with a birthday breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast. We don't normally do this on a school morning, but since Daddy was working afternoons we thought this would be our only way to celebrate as a whole family.

We began the morning with opening her gifts. She received some new clothes which she desperately needed as she has been growing like a little weed lately. And, she got what she has been dying for for over a year - an i-pod!!

After school we headed to Nana and Papa's house for supper. But to make it an even busier night, Matthew and I had to head back into town for Matthew's portfolio night at school. After he proudly showed me his work for the winter term we were on our way back to Nana and Papa's for supper and cake!


Nana and Papa gave Emily a basket full of some of her favourite things, she loved it!

If you were to ask Emily if she had a good 11th birthday I think she would excitedly say yes!

Thank you for all your well wishes you sent her way on her birthday. It thrilled her to no end!!
