The Girl turned 9 last week. When I turned 9 I got a cassette player. She got an ipod touch.
We had a party with 10 of her Moshi Monster-crazy friends. I wanted to make it all look pretty and so she humoured me - The Girl is good like that.
The cake pre Moshi take over
And after the Moshi invasion
Whipped cream and as many lollies as one could fit on a cupcake.
Pretty cups and straws from Etsy
More prettiness. I made these following Martha's instructions. The Girl said they looked like Iggy.
We played this game, which kept everyone busy. I like busy, busy is good at a kids party.
The Boy got the mummy treatment on the boy's team. They picked him as he was smaller to wrap...
Do you remember playing this game as a child? We called it the Oddie Donut Munch.
The cake inside. Hard to take good shots with 10 kids elbowing behind you. You get the idea. I like ombre, the girl was ambivalent, but humoured me anyway.
Charlie and Lola our cavoodles. Out in the cold...
What luck to find a shop made pinata that looked a bit like Angel!
Happy Birthday, Sunshine Girl. You make us so very happy. We love how you told everyone who asked that the best thing you got for your birthday was the knowledge that your family loves you more than anything xxx
