father's day

cupcakes {no bunting}

photo taken AGES ago {will try and find a newer one}

that's better - Kos 2007

in my opinion father's day is just a made up by the card companys BUT i would feel bad if i ignored it and Nate had made cards @ pre-school! So we made some cakes very very chocolate-y and we bought some sweeties and then i accidently bought his favourite episode of Dr.Who {blink} on dvd !!!

when Nate brought up his card{s} and present in the morning it was so sweet how he explained the artwork on the cards it brought a lump to my throught - he really is a sweetheart - anyway enough sentimentality, i don't want to sound all cupcake/bunting !!!

ooohhh look - my fairy name!

Your fairy is called Columbine Elffrost
She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen during the first snow of winter.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.
