Today it is Linneas birthday, our little girl is turning 2 years old! (Even though she herself insists she is turning three...)
It has been a very good day so far. The day started already at 05.20 when the birthday-girl woke up and refused to go back to sleep, so we had the singing and present-opening in bed then. She had quite a few presents to open, that had been turning up from here and there:
Lucas was very helpful too!
A pair of cool sunglasses from our family in Oz, with the Wiggles, of course!
She got new bedding for her dolls-bed, a Schleich reindeer family and a soft rabbit from Mormor & Morfar in Sweden; and a "Bamse og Kylling"-DVD from her godmother Kamilla in DK.
A Dora-outfit, the sunglasses, a cute little doll in a bag and a UV-suit from the cousins in Australia; some LittlePeople figures from Grandma and Grandad in NZ and a dancing doll from our amah.
We had got her some Schleich animals as well, and a hen house in wood to add to the farm.
Then she came downstairs, and there were even more presents! She got a sink (in wood, to match her Mikki-stove), and a microwave (again, in wood) and there was also a trike waiting for her! (In this picture is ALL the presents though!)
She immediatly took Pooh-bear for a spin!
At 10.00 we had arranged a birthday party at the Yacht Club, with our friends. Kids of all ages had fun, swam and played and had yummy lunch.
The grown-ups had coffees and gin&tonic, and later we all tucked into the yummy chocolate fudge Dora-cake!
We spent about six hours there today (not all our guests stayed that long), and it was absolutely gorgeous! It's a bit weird though, to have a autumn-birthday in over +30 degrees heat!
Linnea recieved some lovely wooden sorting toys from the Sparrows, some wooden biscuits for her kitchen from the Scotts, a LittleTikes fishing rod from the Cummings and a book about fairies with some fairy wings from the Turners.
Here is a little slideshow from the party:
