Jo's BIG day ..... she's in double figures!!

Our Jo turned 10.  Yes ...... our LITTLE Jo ..... TEN!!!!!!!!!  Oh my ...... Mum's still in shock.  She was there when she was born and it only seems like yesterday to her..  Dear little Jo .... she's such a sweetheart.  She's my favourite of all the Grandkids.  She really loves me and hangs with me more than the others do. I love 'em all but Jo's special.  Mum and Jen made her cake. Now that she's in double figures they aren't doing number cakes anymore so they put their hands to their first ROUND cake. Jo wanted a unicorn cake so Mum and Jen went to work and came up with this little number.
Cute, aye??
Look at all those pressies!!
Jo loved it.  Mum and Jen weren't so happy. It was difficult for them.  They tried a technique they hadn't tried before and they had a lot of trouble but it turned out ok in the end.  The pictures looked better than it really was.  They'll try again but Mum's going to practise a bit before attempting another one.  They are getting a lot more adventurous in their cake decorating and are making their own fondant decorations and Mum's been really practising her piping and getting quite good at it again.  She's really been enjoying it.  Jo went to the movies with a few of her friends and they then came back to our house for the present giving and cake cutting etc.  It was a lovely afternoon but VERY hectic. Mum took 3 days to recover.  Not me .....  I had a great time and yes ...... I did get to try the cake and I also got ICECREAM!!  It wouldn't be a birthday without ice-cream, aye???
Uh Oh ..... Herbie the photo bomber!!!!

Pinyata time!!  
She did ask for a rainbow unicorn cake.  Success on both counts, aye?
Awwwwww ... beautiful girl.  
Crikey ..... ten years make a BIG difference, aye??
Oh and I wanted to thank you all for popping over to check out Bianca's blog. You blokes are the best. Bianca's family have lots of animals and when she finishes this trip I'm going to try and talk her into continuing her blog and maybe she'll join us here in Blogville.  That would be good, aye??

Wanna run .... Love, Charlie.

  14. Crikey that's a spiffing cake. We have a motto that no cake should take longer to decorate than for it to be eaten! TEN, sheesh, she'll be off to high school too soon, and become busy. Hope she still has lots of times for cuddles. Happy Birthday, Jo!
