Well not so much introducing her as changing her name. The child formerly known as H9 has had a birthday and is now enjoying being 10.
As is traditional in our house, I spent an eleventy bazillion hours on Friday producing the artwork requested:
Then yesterday, we celebrated with a party at the pub with 10 of her nearest and dearest. To keep the girls occupied, I had them decorating their own party bags boxes with glitter pens…
There was a treasure hunt in the garden followed by the traditional Pass the Parcel game. The High School Musical CD was produced and a dancing competition got them up and moving…
Surprisingly, when the food arrived, they all sat down and ate like real people – they even used cutlery (for the most part). They continued to drink large amounts of red fizzy (11 kids = 10 litres of drink??) and be entertained by The Jonas Brothers on the TV. There was even polite dinner conversation and nobody threw anything….
For dessert, we at Mars Bars as they should be eaten – with a knife and fork. First to finish was declared the winner:
They had a bit of a run around and played with the balloons while making room for the cake…
Soon it was time for the cake and candles….
The combined effect of the red fizzy and the blue jelly and the chocolate was beginning to take its toll. Fortunately, home time was just around the corner. More silliness then it was just time to clean up and head for home.
Happy Birthday H10!
