Happy Birthday, Brianna!

Sixteen years ago, Angus & I welcomed our second daughter, Brianna, into the world. Our family was complete. A sunny natured child, she has grown into a beautiful young lady - a bright spark in our lives.
Happy Birthday, baby!
She passed her Learners driving test and drove us home from Mt.G - I will probably develop a few grey hairs in the coming months! Aaargh!
(She did really well for her first time on the open road)

We had a birthday tea for her in Mt.G and she had about 16 friends (mostly boys!) join her.
Dessert - Chocolate sponge layered with fresh cream and jam. Very nice.
We had told Brianna that Kirby could not make it home for her birthday because there are only a few weeks left on Uni and she had 3 assignments to complete. But Kirby didn't want to miss Bri's 16th so she drove 400kms to surprise her - and surprise her she did! I got Brianna away from the house for a while and Kirby parked in our garage and then when we came home, I lifted the door and there was Kirby's car! The look on Brianna's face was priceless! Kirby had bought helium balloons and some cute PJ's for her so she was over the moon!
(Thanks for coming home, Kirbz (and for all your washing too!)
The smile that lights up our lives! Love ya, Breeza!
Tired and happy, Joolz


  1. Happy birthday Brianna!What a gorgeous smile :0)
    Yep,done the learners thing...not fun !

  2. Such a beautiful daughter! I can tell she is a joy and that cake looks yummy! Did you bake it? V.

  3. Happy Birthday Brianna and you have a lovely smile. Congratulations on your learners permit.
    Our son turned 16 in June and also has his learners permit. Both our cars are manuals which makes it a little more tricky. He is doing really well and other drivers have been great so far. That book takes a while to complete each time but it has to be done. The more hours we can give them now the better.
