Owl Baby Shower

Last week, in between this...

Why, yes she did cut her own lovely hair.


And this...


Why, yes he did cut his head open at Motat and require 4 hours at Starship

I spent some lovely quality time with Alison and Ashley helping out Ashley make goodies for her and Cinzah's baby shower (which was yesterday). We had so much fun combining our talents and creating lots of yummy food while the kids fought and watched tv in the lounge (thanks weather).

Ashley and Cinz are on a strictly gluten free diet so although the ginger cookies and cake were glutinous the cupcakes and cookies in the jar weren't and Ash did an amazing job getting these all out and looking mouthwateringly delicious. And she's the one who should have her feet up resting before her little boy arrives next month!

Here's some pics from our week.
 







Ashley whipped up a batch of peacan & chocolate and cranberry and white chocolate cookies. They were deeelicious! Of course, they needed test tasting....




And then we made a chocolate cake for the table centre. Which was topped with this wee guy here. I'm a little proud of him. Its the first cake topper I've made. I know he's a little on the chubby side but I love him anyway. He's kinda cute.



Here's the cake and the rest of the set up at the party.








And Ash made all the owl bunting as well. See? So clever!

Now...we just need to wait for baby to arrive!
