Abigail turned SIX and her birthday party theme was giraffes. I am surprised we made it to six without doing this theme before, as giraffes have always been her favourite thing. Nanna bought her a wind-up musical giraffe about two months before she was born "in case I'm not here for her birth". And "Fwaffe" has been by her side ever since (as a side note, Bryony has also had a Fwaffe since the day she was born). Abigail probably has a collection of thirty different stuffed animal giraffes, plastic giraffes, giraffe books, giraffe t-shirts, you name it.

On my birthday, I opened the front door expecting to greet my parents for their usual Spring stay. And in walks my SISTER! Holding my NEPHEW! Who I had not yet met! It was a wonderul surprise and the best birthday present :) Check him out, how cute is he?!
We spent a solid three weeks with him and he stole the girl's hearts as much as mine. I was really surprised by how interested in a baby they were actually. Bryony is still talking about "baby Naffan". "Baby Naffan wanna have one, Baby Naffan gonna have one"...

So, no, obviously we did not get to go to this :(
But we did Skype in and dad carried the laptop around the party so that we could say hello to everybody!
