I promised some pictures from Rose's birthday, then realised that I can't post most of them as they show other people's children! She chose to go to Build-a-Bear with five school friends (the minimum number for their parties), then come home for a teddy bears' picnic - though in fact none of them chose bears and it was a monkey / dog / rabbit picnic!
Contemplating her options in Claires (she had a voucher to spend)
"I promise to look after my bear (or monkey) ..."
Monkey boxed and ready to go
Birthday cake - baked by me, decorated by Marie
