Happy 15th Birthday Cali!

This is Isabella, busy at work on her big sister’s birthday present.  A lot of hard work later, we finally had a finished product …









Three of Cali’s friends came for  a sleepover the day before her birthday . Here are the four of them plus Isabella having dinner:

It was a quieter night than we’d expected – the teenagers spent the evening watching films and eating popcorn. Since they didn’t go to bed until the early hours, it was almost lunchtime before they appeared next day. Isabella was almost exploding with anticipation about piles of interesting parcels….

Later in  the afternoon, Cali accompanied her friends on the first part of their train journey home. We met her at her best friend’s house and the 5 of us went over to Pizza Hut for dinner. No record of our booking and lots of things were unavailable on the menu (plus a hiccup with the bill total!) but fun was had by all. Cali’s face was a  picture when the cake was brought out under dimmed lights as the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday..

Then back to Fleur’s house to collect the castle cake she had made – lots of lovely cake this weekend, no wonder I can’t lose any weight….And finally home to recover…. 🙂

    Sounds like everyone had a wonderful time. Love the present Isabella made. She looks very comfortable at the sewing machine. The older girls must have enjoyed their sleepover with film and popcorn (my 13 yr old granddaughter did the same party theme), and isn’t it just fun when in the restaurant everyone sings happy birthday. Always makes me want to cry when that happens. Happy birthday Cali!
