I'm Exhausted!!!

I am so glad that I've got the kid's birthday parties out of the way until next year! It's so full on getting everything organised and ready for the day. And I had it easy this year for Emma, because she wanted to have her party at a play centre, but I was still rushing around all morning, making the cake, decorating biscuits, wrapping pass the parcel, and trying not to forget anything. Em was beside herself with excitement all morning. Here she is before the party, all neat and clean...


She didnt stay that way for long though, but she had SO MUCH FUN!


I hardly got any nice photos of her. Every time I tracked her down and tried to get a picture, I usually got a photo of the back of her because she was racing off so quickly, playing tiggy or something.

I managed to get a couple of group shots...

but I couldnt convince all the kids to come and sit for a photo. These are the ones who couldnt resist the bribe of a lolly :)

On the way home she said it was her best party ever, and now Jack can't wait to have one here too. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I still kinda like the good old home parties the best.


We had to bring all our own party food, which I thought was good, so I could make a few fun things...but the kids hardly ate a thing!!! Some of them did at least have some birthday cake. I made a pink poodle cake, and it actually turned out quite well! (surprise, surprise!)



She got tonnes of pressies, but her favourite one was the pink DSI that her daddy got her. As I'm sitting here she is playing with it, screeching into it actually, and then distorting her voice. Fun times...hope she still likes the pink camera that I've got to give her on her actual birthday next week!
