10 ON 10 :: NOVEMBER

Another month whizzed by…

My 10 on 10 for this month was earlier this week, as Ky celebrated his 11th birthday…

*Morning treats 

*Present excitement!

*Happy Birthday sung by his cousins.

*The white diabolo sticks he’s been longing for…

*New diabolo to add to his collection.

*The collection.

*Off to school.

* Tradition means at 5.07pm we light a firework as that was the moment he was born.

*And then he makes a wish and we all sing. Happy Birthday my love.

Now head on over to Jill to see her 10 on 10… see you next month….
