Becky's Birthday Party

So it was Becky’s birthday party on Saturday. Last year we had a joint party with her friend at a gymnastics centre, followed by food & cake in the adjacent party-room. This year, however, I wanted to do something different for Becky, so we decided on a Fairies & Pirates party (not so much in honour of this blog, though it is obviously fitting, ha!, but more to appease Becky’s obsession with fairies and to create a male equivalent for her little boy friends).

I hired our local village hall, and after much deliberation about the entertainment, I decided to go with a kid’s dance and party instructor, as quite frankly, the thought of entertaining 15 little ones myself made me shudder. Thankfully it was worth the extra expense, as the lady was brilliant.
For just over an hour she got the kids to dance, sing and use up some energy, as well as played a whole host of popular party games, which all the girls and boys loved. She even got the more shy kiddies involved – no mean feat!

Here’s my little birthday fairy. Meanwhile, Alex kept sneaking off and eating his way through all the sandwiches, crisps and cupcakes when he thought no one was watching, the little tinker!

Here’s Becky blowing out her 5 candles – good job Becky!

All in all, she had a brilliant party and still keeps talking about it. I’m so pleased that she had a day to remember.

This is Becky the next (very early) morning, on her actual birthday, unwrapping her presents. Lucky girl!
