Today was Aimee's little party for her birthday. We decided just to invite the neighbourhood kids that she has been playing with all summer, as with her switching schools she doesn't know her class mates that well yet!

Before everyone arrived I took this photo of her, I love how it has turned out!

Her Auntie Ruth (Altered Geisha), Uncle Mark, cousins Georgia and Ben really spoilt Aimee. The following are the gifts that she received, can you feel me turning green with envy, lol!

Do you remember the statue of Tinkerbell that I got for my garden (click here to see), I have decided that I am giving it to Aimee to go with Rani. I have actually gone and got it and cleaned it up, luckily it's fairly new and has been sheltered so it cleaned up perfect! I don't know if you remember Ruth or not, but guess what's going to happen now ..... I won't be happy until I have the full set, lol!

Ruth made this fantastic mini book for Aimee, I love it!!! It will give us something to do over the half term!

and Aimee also got two fairies and a beautiful charm bracelet with a beautiful book, unfortunately Aimee fell asleep before I could read it for her, bless ... so much excitement this week!

I will take this opportunity to thank my mum, dad and my aunt for sending Aimee some beautiful clothes for her birthday!

And this is her cake .......

and this is how overwhelmed she was! I had asked Aimee to stay outside with Ruth, while I brought all the other kids into the lounge, closed the door and lit the candles and then Aimee came in as they were singing Happy Birthday to her, it is actually the first time that I have seen her speechless!

Ben also was at the party, so that made 8 kids altogether, which is quite small for me as I am used to dealing with over 20 kids at parties, I think the biggest Chloe had was in Ireland when we invited all her class and the whole lot turned up at our house which had smaller rooms than we have here, can't fully remember but it was somewhere between 23 and 25 girls, and boy was it fun!

Party Itinerary

1:00 pm everyone arrive
1:20 - 3:00 pm playing in the garden, Aimee opening presents, eating - Hot dogs, Rice Crispy Cakes, Fairy Cakes, and Crisps. Back out playing, back in for the cake, back out again, giving out of party bags
3:10 - Peace and Quiet!!!!

I had got some party games in case the weather was awful, but the day was so nice I decided not to do them and keep them for another time! In any case the children amuse themselves without any adult intervention!

Aimee got a nail art kit from her Uncle Graham, Auntie Ruth (different girl) and cousins Cameron and Alex! Georgia stayed on for a little while, Aimee asked if I would do their nails with the kit, so I did and then added the tattoos that were included. When I asked them to look hard for the photo this is what I got .......

I think I prefer this one!

Again if you have made it this far, thank you so much, I know that my posts are loooong and overloaded with photos!
