Happy Birthday Mini Mouse!!

Its the Baby One's Birthday!

Which means champagne, cake, mountains of presents and.... BABY PHOTOS!

Wasn't she just the sweetest little scamp ever?! 

And twenty seven years on, she's still just as much of a scamp but with more expensive shoes and a penchant for Hendricks, cocktails and Sauvignon Blanc...

Back in the miniature scamp days, Birthdays meant hours with the Argos catalogue compiling Birthday lists, weeks of agonising decisions about the party (theme, guests, party bags, cake, games, outfit...) followed by a month of increasingly overexcited counting down to the BIG DAY...

The cake was always one of the toughest decisions. Mummy Mouse would always make whatever we requested and as we got older our demands got more elaborate - I had a Charlene's Wedding cake for my 6th Birthday and a Macauley Culkin cake for my Home Alone themed 9th Birthday.... 

This weekend we dug out a few snaps of of Mini Mouse's early cakes, particular mention has to go to her 7th Birthday Bagpuss cake...

These days, the cakes are a little more of the Hummingbird variety, but they'll still definitely be sponge, icing and candles in some form or another today....

 Which just leaves the Birthday messages from the other Mice...

And finally, the Middle one and I would LOVE it if all our Blog Buds could join us in saying Happy Birthday to the Baby! Even if you don't usually leave comments, it would be amazing if you made an exception just this once! 

Happy, Happy Birthday Little Mouse Toes - here's to an incredible year...!
