Stella's Special Day

The week before Easter, our little girl (really our big girl) turned 4!! Four!! I just can't believe it. The years have flown by and they have truely been the best 4 years of my life!!
I must admit, when we had Stella, never in my wildest dreams, did I think that we would have 4 children before she even turned 4!
But we do. And we are the luckiest people in the world!
To say that our princess has changed our lives is an understatement. I never knew true, unconditional love until she came into the world.
Every day (well maybe not everyday, but most days) I feel like the luckiest person on earth to be her mother. She is kind, caring, smart, affectionate and soooooo far beyond her years its frightening.

We love you Stella, you have made us a family and continue to put a smile on our faces everyday. You are the best big sister and your little siblings adore you and we just know you are going to have a VERY bright future! xo

Gee, I am getting a bit deep lately , aren't I?!
You know what? I think its important to stop and think that way sometimes.
Some days are hard, they are long, tedious and testing.
But being a Mum, is a blessing, a privaledge, some people don't get the chance to experience.
And...... I may just be going solo this week, and need to stay positive, or this ship will sink!

And now , for the day that was Stella's

We made her a dolls house out of an IKEA Expedit, DH just put a backing board on it to which I used Spray Adhesive and some pretty wrapping paper.
The furniture is either second hand off Ebay or from Crazy Clarkes and spray painted white.
And you know what? For $59 , its a cheap dolls house , it fits her 12inch Blythe dolls and SHE LOVES IT!!

And it seems , so does Max!! He snuck in a play while she opened the rest of her pressies!

And Lacey tried on her new 'Click Clack' shoes, thats what little brothers and sisters are for aren't they?

And this little beauty, (with his floppy ears , hehe ) just watched and too it in.

                                               Happy little possum on her big 4th day!!

And off to school she went, with Mummy!! I think it was the highlight of her day, that I did parent help!! We also took in cupcakes for all the kids and they all put on the birthday hat, and blow out candles! So cute!

Instagram pic, totally addicted!

And she asked for a Barbie princess cake, and thats what she got!! Can you tell I got my new Tuppaware piping thingo and went a little OTT with zushing?!

And we had a last minute, very casual , party at the park, and everyone had a ball!

                                                       She loves her Dad, alot!

                And there is no better birthday activity than playing with your little friends!
                            I love this pic, she is pushing her good little friend, so cute!

And to top it off, dinner with the family, and a Green frog cake, tradition of course!

Now , would someone invent a time machine, and slow this baby down?!


  1. Happy birthday to your little girl. You guys are so bloody clever, love that doll house.

  2. Gorgeous doll house Liz! Great idea! We love click clack shoes around here too! Saves Mum's heels from ending up all over the house!

  3. I love family traditions :)

    I would love to have a little girl one day & make a Barbie cake, oh & by the way there can NEVER be enough zushing! :) I go mad with those things :)

    Happy 4 birthday little one! :)
