Happy Birthday!

Today we celebrated Ally's 5th birthday!


He's been counting down the days for a few weeks now and was so excited that the day was finally here!


All birthday boys get to choose what's for dinner on their special day and Ally chose his favourite - mince and mashed tatties. Only he had one request, 'please could we have it without the veg mixed in?' I usually add peas and carrots to our mince! But if you can't request to skip your veg on your birthday then when can you? (I cooked the vegetables separately for those of us who wanted them!)


His birthday presents were, of course, dominated by super heroes.




James (14) continues to take pride in decorating birthday cakes and did himself proud with this one.







And Calum (11) continues to love baking cakes. He too did a wonderful job. Look how perfect that sponge is, and it's gluten and dairy free too!


All the heroes had to come to the table for cake too.





I've not tried posting a video using this app before, so if it works, here is the birthday boy receiving his cake and introducing his new toys to us!




Happy birthday sweet boy!
