I can sing a rainbow....

Mum's birthday cake. Made by me. Decorated by the kids.

"Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow too.

Listen with your eyes
Listen with your ears
And sing all there is to see

You can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow
Sing along with me"

After all the rain and dark clouds I felt like I needed a burst of colour to feast my eyes upon. So here's some rainbow colours that have been bursting into our world lately.

My ric rac stash. Makes me smile every time I look at it.

Pipe cleaner and straws princess jewellery. For Grandma, by Lee and Kate.

And she had the good grace to wear them all at the restaurant where they were given to her. Even when she went out into the street to take a phone call. Good on ya mum :)

Lee has been singing the rainbow song lately. He sings it so beautifully it almost brings a tear to my eye. Kids, gotta love 'em. One day it's poo jokes, the next it is the warbling of angels.

And of course, I wouldn't change it for the world.

What a treasure of a birthday cake! How could you possible have the heart to cut into it? I know your mother would have loved it.

Oh, and the bags are pretty alright too. With my luck, I will probably buy an identical one to Amanda's.

I'm impressed by the gorgeous ric-rac stash. The new style of bags are stunning too.

Oh, and the lovely cake.

Lots of goodness in this post.

Bec, I'm sure that your mum had the best birthday - such a special cake and wonderful jewels - I'm not sure that she would've been able to stop smiling!
It's a good week for rainbow songs, and good to know that Lee's repertoire is not restricted!
