We had a 'birthday tea' on Thursday night for 7 of us:
this was the cake my 18 year old asked for (a replica of the one I made her for her 1st birthday!)
Then on Friday more family arrived and 10 of us squeezed in to my kitchen and more happy birthdays were sung and more bubbly consumed!
Saturday was the big party day. I only have a small house, but we managed to cram a lot of people in to the front room, the kitchen and the conservatory
We managed to squeeze about 40 family and friends in - some of whom had travelled a long way to be here and we hadn't seen for a while. It was soooo much fun
Daniel has grown up so much and is nearly walking
And Emily is growing up so quickly too
I thoroughly enjoyed doing all the 'catering' and feeding the masses - I do it very rarely so did get to enjoy it.
On Sunday morning a lot of family came round for a coffee before heading off on their journeys home. By Sunday afternoon, we were all zombies on the settee - but happy ones with lots of happy memories
