Happy 8th Birthday Beautiful Girl....

I don't know where the years have gone? Today Yasemin turned 8!

Unfortunately it was a school day, but lucky for Yas, Aunty Susan came to the party. She cooked red velvet cupcakes and had them at school in her staffroom for Yas and Max to ice and decorate. Susan also provided Yas with a purple Happy Birthday Tiara to wear and a birthday girl ribbon for her shirt.

Yasemin finally had her dreams come true - we gave her a Guinea Pig. When she first saw it, she hugged me very tight and started to cry and sob with joy. Hammy Sandwich, the new addition to our family lives in an enormous cage in her bedroom. The pet shop assured me they don't smell - we will wait and see.....

After school, we went to the local pub, to celebrate her special day. Lunden, Pat, Murphy, Maeve, Declan and Susan joined us. The Vine Street Pub is a great place that rivals any local Aussie pub. We all had a fantastic evening, and they even provided Yasemin with an enormous slice of Birthday Cake with a candle on the house!

We retreated back to our house for desert and some red wine. As you can tell from our photographs, a great time was had by all. Yasemin was  completely spoilt and had a lovely day.

Happy Birthday my darling girl - I can't believe what a beautiful, compassionate person you are! We love you so very much xxxxx


  1. Happy Birthday Yasemin!

  2. Happy 8th birthday, Yasi! What a fun time you had with your lovely friends! The photos are super, especially the one with Hammy Sandwich. (Just love the name *smile*)
    You and Max are so lucky to be on this wonderful adventure!

    I was hoping to phone you but I've been teaching every day and not home at suitable times.

    Please give Mummy a big kiss for writing this beaut blog. Every week, I look forward to reading about your exciting outings. Give Daddy a big hug....just because you love him. He seems to be an expert driver on icy roads too!

    Lots of love from Auntie Cherilyn xxxooo
