Party time!

Bake off party all prepared... decorations and party dress all done.

Baking gets underway...
My mum is on hand to help out with the aftermath. Mums are great aren't they?
Pass the parcel...
Party games in teams of two. Great game for grown ups too.
Time for the girls to ice the cakes and fold cake boxes.
"Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...."
Find your cake for your party bag. Big sis enjoyed decorating these bags last week.
Finally, a piece of cake for me and mum.
I really enjoy the whole party thing at home. It feels like a real party, how parties used to be. Happy 6th Birthday. Jo x
