Hannah's 8th Birthday

On Saturday Hannah turned 8 years old!!!

When we asked her what she'd like to do she asked if she could have her riding lesson in the morning, and then go to Manor Farm for the afternoon. This is what she has asked to do for at least the last 4 birthdays, she loves to spend her birthdays out in the countryside surrounded by animals!

So after presents in the morning, which included a dolls pram from Grammy, lots of money, and a My American Girl Doll (caramel hair and blue eyes just like Hannah) and accessories from us, she was really excited to catch the postman before we left the house! He brought her a parcel from her lovely friend Sydney in America who's mum had made Hannah and her new doll matching hats and a purse, as well as sending her new clothes :-)

Then we left to go to Hannah's riding lesson where she got to ride her favourite pony Freddy and had her favourite helper Amy!

Next we went out for a quick lunch and it was on to Manor Farm!

Hannah and Grammy did the small animal handling session together - this is the duckling!

We visited the Piglets

There is always a chicken picture - they are my favourites!
 Then Auntie Anita took Hannah in to the milking session while my mum and I had a walk around the farmhouse.

When we caught up with them Hannah was just going to bottle feed the Calves and Lambs so luckily I was able to get some pictures of that as well.

 After all that we went back to Grammy's house for more presents - some surprises from Grammy including two new additions to Hannah's Blue Nose Friends collection, and a beautiful garden bird table from Auntie Anita and Uncle Andi, with lots of food and accessories and some more new clothes - Hannah is SO lucky!!

Finally Hannah went to her Nanny and Grandad's house where she had a lovely visit with them, was delighted to get a cool new Barbie puppy play pool and some more birthday money!

She really did have the best birthday, and was so happy to see so many family members on her special day. She is having a birthday picnic with her friends next weekend.

Just to finish off this marathon post, here are a few pictures of Hannah's new bird table after she set it all up yesterday!

Hannah would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for making her day so perfect :-)
