Jakey's birthday

So where has the last week gone, it seemed to take a while to get here but its over in a flash, 
Christmas that is!
but just before we had jakey's birthday, i cant believe our little man is 3 already, 
where has that time gone?
jakey had a dino cake, i was going to get a lovely one made and they are gorgeous but then i thought why make such a great cake and then 5 minutes later cut it up and have nothing left of it so instead i got some toy Dinos and decorated a cake with them, best of both worlds, a cake and some toys to keep, he loves his dinos so i am happy with that,lots more candles that he should have had for his 3 years but he wanted more!
and of course as with all presents the box is the best bit, he was playing at being a robot with it lol

 and then we were quickly into christmas, i did manage a couple of pics of mia before the big day, but jake was a wirlwind of excitement so only managed a few blurred images lol
so a quiet boxing day for us, well we have the littlies here but jake is having a quiet hour upstairs in my bed watching a dvd and mia is snoozing on the sofa....so quiet for a few minutes anyway 

hope you have all had a lovely christmas and that things are good for the new year x x

a few things to show........

Well it was the Scout Hut Crafters christmas party on sunday, we had such a good day as we always do, we decided to provide lunch for ourselves with everyone bringing in a dish of something, boy did we have a fantastic spread, we were eating all day but managed to clear most of it lol

i did take a few pics but with not my usual camera and not knowing how it works i didnt get too many good ones, (phew i hear you mutter) not to worry i did get a few, here is a rare one of jo and myself, and both smiling lol
we had our usual secret santa which was fab, look at all the exchanged goodies.....
this is what i received from lucy, absolutley spot on, i love it all thanks you lucy x
and this is what i gave to Sandra

 a close up of the tin i stitched the top and mounted it, and lined the tin with a padded base and inside the lid, rather wanted to keep it for myself lol
