The Twins are Four! April 12, 2012

Charlie and Flora were so excited about their birthday.  They both woke up saying, “It’s my birthday today!”.

Daddy made them delicious pancakes for breakfast.

We decorated the house with balloons and bunting.  (The gorgeous Pooh and Piglet balloons were made by Kiri.  Thanks, Kiri!)

Emily and Kiri made some ham, cheese, and ham & cheese sandwiches.  We put out some veggie sticks w/houmous, grapes, and potato crisps for a nice birthday lunch.

Then we welcomed our guests.  In addition to Emily and Kiri, we saw Emilie and Tim from Canterbury and Anisa and Nuri who had just moved back to Whitstable!

We went outside to play pin-the-tail-on-eyeore.  Nuri won.

Flora and Charlie weren’t so sure about the whole blindfolding thing…

Emilie was a good sport, but hit the wrong end of the donkey.

Emily also did well, but definitely not as well as Nuri.

Tim was a very good sport, but silly Tim, he missed the donkey altogether!
