A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013
Evie: we made a 'houseboat' cubby with the lounges and sheets, then spent some 'girl time' just chatting - she's delightful
Dexter:this curious boy doesn't sit still for long (all rugged up for a visit to Mount Lofty this morning)
Evie turned five during the school holidays (crazy town, when did I become the mother of a five year old!). I'm sure you've gathered by now that Evie is quite a character, and her choice of party theme did not disappoint - a Christmas party!!
We held the party in a local park, with fine sunny weather, it was quite glorious. We kept the guest list simple with immediate families and a handful five year old friends.
Here's Evie in her Christmassy outfit, waiting for the guests to arrive, looking forlorn with her scooter (we replaced this scooter with a 'grown up' one for her birthday a couple of days later)
Here's our set-up - we got lots of decorations and tableware from friends and family, and borrowed the tree from little adelaide kate (thanks!). Under the tree are the party bags for Evie's friends - we painted the wrapping paper together and had fun filling them with treats (balloon, colouring sheet, bubbles, chocolate, stickers).
ha this photo cracks me up! Roger bought a Santa suit for the occasion and totally surprised Evie, it was awesome.
