When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded on the chair,
And mother switches off the light,

Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold,
Tomorrow, I'll be ___ years old.
___ kisses when I wake,
___ candles on my cake.

I also made a personal time-line for Defne. I showed her pictures from her birth,1st,2nd and 3rd years.
At the party the children had great fun,dancing and playing. We also made a craft activity which went very well.We made tie-dye hankies.I had seen it on Pink and Green Mama. We had lovely patterns like this:
