Not about the farm or the garden

Yesterday was Grace's 15th birthday so it is all about her. She is easy to please and was really taken with her birthday cake this year. I have to say it was one of the easiest I have had to make. I saw the idea on Pinterest and it really requires no instructions, what you see is what you get, a chocolate cakes iced and surrounded in Kit Kat wafers and topped with Snarties. I chose the smallest cake tin I have because I knew it was going to be a big ask for the four of us to get through that much decoration. As it happen, only three of us have tried, I really do not like cake overly unless it is a cheesecake so I passed (so far).
Kit Kat and Smarties cake

 The fifteen years since she was born have flown by which I am sure is what any mother would say about their children. This is the girl who at three thought that headstones in a cemetery were to tell you the name of the flowers there and that because of photos she had seen, that I was alive when the world didn't have any colour.

 This is my very favourite picture of her. Five years old and truly a sweetie.

15 years
And now almost grown up but still there is quite a bit of the little girl in her personality. She loves her family, her violin and piano and just about any creature you can name.  And I love her.

That is so sweet that she thought head stones were for the names of flowers and a black and white world.

She reminds me our our daughter 'Little G' who is not so little either...she had her 14th birthday this weekend!
Lovely cake ....G insisted on just as many lollies and we are just not used to so much sugar!

Interesting comment about the colour, when my son Jack was younger he's 10 now,and we were watching an old Giligan's Island on TV and it was in black & white, Jack said to Kev and I when you were little wasn't there any colour in the world, meaning the same as your daughter that everything in our life was black and white. I love the way children think...They grow so quickly don't they !
