Just like a Princess

Rebecca had a hair cut today which shockingly cost me £13.50!! They curled her hair like a princess and when we got home we had to get a crown and a gown out to dress up. This photo was taken after dinner (so gown had been put away) but I wanted to capture the curls as I had blonde curls as a toddler. Of course - getting a decent photograph is a whole challenge in itself :)

I received some photos in the post from my Dad today. He had taken them when he came to visit at the end of october. I was really pleased as I had forgotten to take any Hallowe'en photos and Rebecca had really enjoyed hollowing out the pumpkin and doing a mini trick or treat! I did a LO from the photographs.

I didn't feel too great this afternoon, and when i picked Rebecca up from nursery and brought her home, she went and found me a cuddly monkey to make me feel better, and made me lay down on the sofa with her.....awww.

Pink Cake with Pink Candles

Rebecca was desperate to make a cake for Auntie Nessa's birthday so we spent Sunday afternoon making a cherry almond ring. Rebecca insisted on pink icing and pink candles and very bright pink it was too. I gave her a selection of decorations and she spread the icing herself too - a creation from the heart!

Today I received my buttons from the magpie Button Swap and here they are! My sender had obviously put lots of thought into my button selection with things for my Christmas album and "little girl" orientated designs. Also, I think the topping for a cupcake!! THANKS xxx

More cakes

Today Rebecca and I made the Banana Loaf recipe from my CJ (contributed by Samm).

We added sultanas to the recipe and used a Vanilla Activia yoghurt instead of plain, but it still tasted good... thanks Samm!

On top of spaghetti......

On top of spaghetti (buttercream), all covered in cheese (grated white chocolate) I lost my poor meatball (Ferrero Rocher dipped in Jam) when somebody sneezed.....

Here is the cupcake dinner I made for Teresa for her birthday. Took me less than an hour start to finish and tasted gorgeous!!! It wasn't until I put the "parmesan" on the top that it really looked like meatballs and spaghetti!!

3D Cinema

Went to see Avatar in 3D tonight at the Odeon. It was FANTASTIC. However, I think £11.50 for a cinema ticket is horrendous! Would see it again though :)
