Happy Birthday to ME!!

I turned a very unexciting 35 today!!
Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!!!
When did a birthday become uninteresting?
I have had a lovely day, but I really do miss the build up of a birthday. Remember the feelings that started to bubble a week or two before you actual birthday. The excitement & anticipation of unwrapping your first present. Oh boy I loved it. I loved having a big birthday cake, lots of candles and a chorus singing to me. Today was a quiet affair with Daniel & the kids, mum & dad came by, and I received many calls, texts and facebook messages wishing me a special day.
The highlight of my day, as per usual were my kids. Hudson's joy at taking over the cake and blowing out the candles, repeatedly. More blowing, more blowing, he would repeat.
Today was Charlotte's first look at a candle, the focus in her big blue eyes was priceless. Like a deer looking into headlights.
These little happenings around my cosy kitchen table were my birthday highlights.

Happy Birthday Kylie... I hope you had a great day!
I dont think birthdays are as exciting as we get older.. More exciting to watch the kids take over! :)

Happy Birthday Kylie, it looks like a great celebration. The kitchen table is the hub of the house isn't it?! My 35th isn't too far away, I always joke that it is the last year I can do a Contiki tour!!

Happy birthday again, Sweetie!

Yes, having turned the big four-oh recently, I agree - birthdays feel so different now.

It's the same on Planet Baby - I get so much more pleasure out of watching the pixies' excitement for me.

Let's wait until our littlies can make us things on their own and write in cards without help - fun birthdays lie ahead for us, Kylie! J x
