Austin’s birthday in pictures: Our Time of Gifts week 19

birthday cake

Austin (shown above on his last night as a three-year-old) celebrated his birthday on Friday. Gifts galore.

He left for pre-school as usual, clutching his contribution to Children In Need and a rocky road tray bake, to share with classmates, to help them get into the party spirit.

We embellished it with chopped-up wine gums, to maximise tooth decay. What else are birthday treats for?

Back home at lunchtime for carrot cake with Mum, Dad and a rather poorly Gwen.

Octonauts is the current favourite. So, from Gwen Austin had a Gup-E.

Mum and Dad gave an Octopods playset.

The celebrations will continue, in a couple of weeks, at a soft-play centre when Austin has his joint party with another little person.

No doubt we’ll update you on that.

And tune in at the end of this week, for a rather more typical Our Time of Gifts.

Bye for now!

Disclosure: all toys featured in this post were paid for by us.
