almost one….


on January 13, 2004

The highlight of this weekend was Max’s first birthday party! smile


All I can say is madness! We had 24 adults and seven children in our wee house and it was absolute bedlam smile Luckily after two weeks of crappy weather the day was stunning with no cloud and just a gentle breeze. Max was, of course, spoilt rotten and between getting drinks and cooking up a storm on the BBQ I probably said a dozen words to him or Vic all day 🙁 People were gone by about 8:30pm and Vic and I collapsed into bed about an hour later – lol!

Just a great day and many thanks must go to my darling wife for all the preparation and hard work, my Mum for the great cake, Auntie Lala for being herself in the kitchen on the day, Max for being an angel all day and not getting stroppy even though he had no afternoon nap and everyone for the presents and coming along and making it the fantastic day it was.

    I can’t believe he’s going to be one soon. It’s just too soon!!  He was just a wee baby. Goodness!

    Sounds like the party was a success. And I remember both my kids 1st birthday parties well.. the husband and I rarely saw each other during them. They were just so chaotic, but fun! smile
