4 years has gone so fast. My little boy is off to pre-school next year and only one more year to big school. On those days that three little people give me a hard time I'm glad that I will have one less child for a couple of days a week next year, on the days when they are adorable I get a bit sad.
We had a lovely birthday party with our very special friends and some family. This year I decided to have the party at a local park and it was a great idea. The only downside was having to plan ahead and pack/unpack the car, but it was worth having the extra space and a playground. For the party food I made pinwheels, two varieties - pizza & vegemite (this was an alternative to chips which are loaded with so much artificial stuff, even though I grew up eating them I just can't fathom them anymore). I also made a zucchini slice which was cut into small pieces and some cut up watermelon. We threw some snags on the barbie with onions and a coleslaw and some fresh mini bullet rolls from our local Vietnamese bakery. The party cake was from Homebush Cakes - a chocolate gateau slab. For birthday at home on the day we had a Chocolate Icecream and Oreos cake from Gelatomassi (pictured above). I'll try to post the recipes for you later in the week.

One of my favourite time-wasters is fabric window-(online)-shopping. I think Little Betty is doing a great job already but I couldn't resist putting together some fabric combinations I think would make great bonnets (the design possibilities are endless, I only had time to look at a few collections and some of the below combos are interchangeable with each other). The first one and the last two are my favourites. I also think Little Betty should consider making these bonnets for little girls not just babies/toddlers.
