Smalls and mess

Cakes all done. I thought it would be a good idea to get the kids to help decorate them seeing as they were for their various parties, school etc.

Here they are getting stuck in.....



Definitely 'Not' eating any of the decorations........

Still decorating, well there are a lot of them ............






Small looking longingly at his cakes for school sale



Smallest checking out his cakes for his playgroup party.


Then they ran away and played while I cleared up all the mess - and boy was there a mess!!

Ummmm - I ate a few of the cakes too.  Yum.

 

Chook Delivery



All chickens are now safely in their new homes.  I hope they are happy there.    Just in case you haven't seen enough of the chickens in their various poses (Chooks) - here are some more.


4 little chickens sitting in a tree ................



Tell it like it is - stop sitting on the fence



Is this a good nesting place?

That's it - I promise no more chickens for a while.  Got three minions to knit.  Still not finished Mum's cardigan.  Friends cake and Cinderella Cake to make.  Felt Cup Cakes to make, knitted cup cakes to knit - looking for a good pattern if anyone has got one they can share.

Thanks for all your comments - its so much fun reading them.

I have happy memories of doing the same with my 3. Thanks for sharing. Check out Ravelry for knitted cup cake patterns. There are several free patterns on there.

I don't think I have visited you before. I try to get round as many desks as I can each week, but there are always some that get missed.
I'm loving the chooks and the cupcake making with the smalls:)Little Cotton Rabbits has a very sweet cupcake pattern, it's not free, but available in her Etsy shop.
