One of the many joys of being a grand-parent is finding ways to indulge your grand-daughter on her birthday. We took a small load of things around for Ella last Friday morning - her third birthday. She really liked her Cinderella dress up dress - it was the requisite colour and had just the right amount of spangles.

She already has a beautiful tea-set in a painted pink wooden box but we're hoping she'll eventually agree to keep this spotted china T2 set at our house for those times when she likes to make a cup of tea for me.

Josh and Jody approved of the kite and the (pink) scooter we also brought around but I think they were a bit horrified by the "glass slippers" present Rob found at Spotlight. He correctly guessed that Ella would LOVE them. The idea is she will eventually keep them at our house for short dress up games only. Josh and Jody can't wait for that to happen!

Ella's birthday party is next weekend. Over the next week I have to work out how to make her a Cinderella cake!!!
