Karen's Birthday Weekend: Part Two

Part Two of Karen's birthday weekend!
A post about the party just wouldn't be complete without special mention of these gorgeous matching outfits for the girls. Our very talented Nana Alison whipped up these black and white music themed twirly skirts and white layered tops and the girls were so chuffed with their themed outfits.
As you can see, she didn't stop there. Oscar also had a matching bandana! What a stunning trio. Thanks Nana for all your effort, we really appreciated it. :)
One of the highlights of the party was of course, the fireworks. You cannot have a party around Guy Fawkes time without them. :)
Rose was initially terrified but after some coaxing from Nana and Carol, she was soon clapping away with Eden and enjoying all the action outside.
This weekend we were also very fortunate to be able to stay at B's house. It is right by the beach and totally amazing. I was amazed at how bright the stars are out there at night. They really were like diamonds and I don't think I have seen anything like it before.
This was the view from our bedroom. You would be hard pressed to top that anywhere! Taff was able to enjoy this view from the lounge while he relaxed with a book. B, thanks so much for your kindness and generosity in allowing us to stay. It was the icing on the cake of a great weekend and so nice to find someone with the same taste in books! :)
Karen, I hope your birthday was a special one for you, I know it was for us. You are a woman of many talents and you truly are a motivation and inspiraton to me. Your enthusiasm, drive and love of life is an example to all who are blessed to be counted as your friends and family. Happy birthday! :)
