Well! I'm exhausted!!
Brooke's birthday went off without a hitch... started on Friday night with Pizza with Julie & Con and their kids of which Hannah stayed the night with us... the Saturday morning was visit from Niki's friend Rachael and her kids with more presents for Brooke.
I then took Brooke down to my parents where she went on with her Gran for a shopping expedition to Parramatta and she came back with a stack of clothes.... then we all went out for dinner at the local Chinese place and ate waay too much.
Sunday, was up early, Brooke got her new bike she wanted and we were off to her "Build-a-Bear" party at Penrith. That was really good and well run, and for $35 a head, it was good value but I recommend no more than 6 kids all up. Brooke invited her sister Kate and 4 girls from school for the party and after an hour or so at Build-a-Bear, it was back to our place for a teddy bears picnic.
At 2pm we were taking the kids home and by 4pm, Niki's family had arrived and we had a big dinner as well... now, its late, the kids are zonked and I'll be heading to the office tomorrow for a rest!! LOL.
