37birthdaycake

D: Go out of the kitchen, mum – I’m going to decorate your birthday cake all on my own – you’re NOT ALLOWED to see!
Me: OK.

[Quite a while later]
D: This is not good, mum – you’re not going to like it; I tipped the silver balls into the pot with the gold balls in it. Then I tipped them all into the empty pot, then back into the other pot, then back, then back, then back. Then some of the balls fell out – not all of them – and they went onto the floor and now I can’t find them.
Me: Have you decorated the cake yet?
D: No.

[Quite a while later]
D: There. That’s a piece of white string, with a chocolate chip balloon on top [left of centre], that’s a silver balloon with some gold string [centre, top], and they’re gold and silver presents [bottom].

Balloons and presents all around!

Daniel’s 5th birthday, pre-party – Oct 2012

D: I haven’t used purple because Daniel hates purple – he said.
That’s Daniel [bottom right, sideways on] – he’s got some candy in one hand and a cupcake in the other hand.
He’s got a red hat with a ‘5’ on it.
There’s lots of people and there’s 2 tables with lots of food on them [top, centre and left].
There’s some ‘X’ marks the spots and a balloon man’s been blowing up balloons.

Prior to Leo’s 6th birthday party – Sept 2012

D: That’s Leo; he’s got a costume on, and that’s orange and brown face paint – he’s a lion [top right].
That’s someone who’s come dressed as a pirate, and they’re bowling [top left]. They’re the skittles [in red and blue, top, centre].
That’s a table with some food on it [beneath the pirate] – there’s some cheesy puffs [in yellow] and there’s two peppers [in red].
That’s someone who didn’t come as anything because they forgot [in blue, left of centre].
That’s two people who came dressed as Spiderman, and there’s a spider [bottom left].
That’s Leo, sat at the table, eating his food and there’s lots of food and drinks all around the table [just below centre].
