Now I am 2

Kelvin had a quiet celebration of his second birthday today!

It all started with present opening in bed, a relaxed breakfast (his usual, weetbix with a sprinkling of rice bubbles plus toast and anything else he can scrounge of other people's plates), then helping in the garden with Dad.

After lunch and his sleep it was time for more presents and cake. By the time he opened his last present he had really got the hang of ripping that paper!!

And he enjoyed playing with all his new toys!

And I made the lion cake out of the classic Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book (the 1980's version - the original and the best). Kelvin kept calling it a yellow tiger and told everyone that entered the house about his cake!
He enjoyed being the centre of attention and had a good old go at blowing out the candles!
Happy Birthday little man. Hard to believe it's been two whole years since your early morning arrival on Black Friday (when the stock market crash, signalling the arrival of the GFC in Australia).
From this...
To this!
