On the 27th of December it is Robin’s birthday. Sometimes it can be an unfortunate time of year to have a birthday because everyone is busy with Christmas, but this year we had a lovely day combining Robin’s birthday with meeting up with his family for christmas- we had a lovely day at home opening gifts, eating lots of food and playing games. Here’s some pictures from the festivities! hope everyone is having a nice relax after the business of Christmas and preparing for New Years celebrations!
We started the day giving Joe his Christmas present from us-it has kept us all entertained for hours!
Robin’s birthday cake- I made this from a recipe from the “Cake Days” cook book-its an apple and pecan spice cake
Chocolate butterfly cakes made by granny in cute Rudolph cake holders we brought them for christmas in a hamper last year

Joe finally got the hang of wrapping paper and loved opening his gifts- but also wanted to open everybody else’s too!
