Remember Miss G???

Ok ..... so Mum still wants to tell you about her trip away and I will let her ..... one day ..... but right now I reckon you'd rather see Miss G's latest birthday pics.  You remember Miss G, aye??  She's the one that wouldn't wear clothes.  Couldn't keep 'em on her no matter how hard we tried.  Kidd'n' that hasn't changed.  Now she won't let anyone see her naked.  Not even ME!!! Would you believe she's turned 5??  Crikey ..... the baby of the family is 5?  Where did those years go??
You should have seen the cake decorating effort. What a disaster!!  Mum's 20, plus year mix master packed it in during the making of the all important icing and improvisation was needed in a hurry.  It was really hard to beat and couldn't be done by hand so Dad came to the rescue. I'll let the pictures tell the story.  I don't know if you remember but when Mum and Jen decorate the kids cakes they always give everyone a job to do. Well this time Dad sure had his work cut out but his actions saved the day.  Mind you .... my job is always to supervise and I reckon I did a pretty good job too.  The cake wasn't our best effort ever but Miss G loved it and that's the most important thing, aye??
We had the celebrations the day before I was put in the slammer and Mum and Dad took off to the bush so it was just a small family affair but we sure had a good day.  Wanna see the pics ..... of course you do ...

How good's Dad, aye??  It wasn't perfect but it did the trick and guess what?  Mum's got a brand new mixer for the next cake.  
All ready for Miss Jo's unicorn cake next week!!  She's 10 ..... oh my .... double figures!!
Looking' good so far!!

I'm the best supervisor!!
Pretty, aye??
How good is that mermaid tail?  Jen made that one.  The little girls made one each too but we couldn't put them on the cake. They didn't pass my quality control.  They did go on some cupcakes though.   
Wow ..... look at all that loot!!
I think she liked that pressy!!
She sure liked that mermaid doll.  
Time to blow the candles out.  Crikey Izzi ..... shut your mouth, mate.  A fly could fly in there.  
Well done Miss G!!
Crikey ...... she sure looked dangerous with that knife.  
REALLY???????  I waited for the ice-cream to go with mine.  
Wanna run .... Love, Charlie.

    Well I think you dad gets four paws up for his creative mixerising, same for you for snoopervising Charlie mate... and best wishes to mum for adapting the new machine to cake making; it's a fair bet that it won't last the same twenty years the old one did. It's that kinda world! Anyway, you all did a fabby job on that cake and all you forgot was to organise tastavision &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  12. We love seeing your dad mix the cake with a drill. BOL! That was very clever. Happy Belated Birthday to little Miss G.

  13. Happy birthday Miss G! Wow! You always make such creative cakes. I'm sure my Dad would have used his power drill to make the icing too. He uses his shop-vac to clean the house!
