Hip Hooray, it's my birthday.

I've had a wonderful day with my family today...yep I'm terribly old but still young at heart ;) Here's the five of us together, not the best pic but hey at least we are all in it!

Woke up to pancakes cooked by my sweet Harrison, then we all went out to lunch which was really lovely. Here we are together in a rare photo...always hard to get him to pose!!

Me with my three gorgeous babies.

With my beautiful sister Nicole at lunch.

Harry with his girlfriend Emilie....he still looks like he has eyeliner on from his stage performance last night.....too funny!

After lunch I decided to do some sewing for me!!! Cut out a child's pattern from Ottobre 6/2008, no 37 - Nana knit course I made a few a 'bit' extra in the hip/chest areas ;) Hopefully will get a chance to actually sew it up this week.

I also managed to get to Office Works to buy some magazine holders for all my sewing magazines using the money my mother and father in-law sent to me for my birthday, really happy with the display now. So easy to find the magazine and pattern I need.

So all in all a lovely day, family, food, wine, shopping and sewing...what else is there!!


  1. Happy birthday to you Karen - sounds like the perfect day to me!
    The little girl outfit you made in your last post is gorgeous - I must try a decorative stitch like that - it looks great.

  2. hey Karen, I hope you had a great birthday! What a lovely family you have, lovely pictures and everyone looks so happy.

    I have not got over to CM in the past few days as my sister just arrived so big hugs from me here(((((0)))))))

    hope you had a great day - we will catch up soon and toast your big day.

  4. Glad that you had a wonderful day. Gorgeous photos. At least your teenager is willing to be in a photo with his mum! Awwwwww!

  5. Sounds like you had a wonderful day! I can't believe you have a son that age, you look so young!

  6. Haha LM...I'm seriously old enough to have a 16 year old...I'm really old...just use soft focus lens with all my pics ;)

  7. Levin...I didn't want to tell you because it was your special night, not mine. Plus my birthday wasn't until Sunday so there was nothing to tell ;)

  8. I love your family pics. I dropped a parcel off for you this morning, I left a message at CMs. Enjoy!
