Busy Weekend

Had a busy but really good weekend just gone. Friday night we had my brother and sisters and their families over for H's 9th birthday. Went really easy on the catering - takeaway pizza and icecream cake and everyone had a fun relaxing time. The kids had a ball.

Saturday night we had H's friends for a pyjama party. It was so easy, would recommend it to anyone who wants a low fuss party for this age. We started with tea of party pies and sausage rolls, chips and then fruit platters with chocolate dipping sauce. Then they painted their nails while we tidied up and got the cake ready. After cake they had a short session of dancing and happy snaps then we put on a DVD. Hubby and I made ourselves scarce then, he to the bedroom to watch the footy and me to the computer to do some scrapping - I even got a whole layout finished. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we were relaxed too.


Sunday after church we had small group over for lunch. Everyone brought something to eat and it was great to have a bit more time just to relax and talk. The kids disappeared and amused themselves. Unfortunately the boys decided to paint Harry our dog. It was hard trying to keep a straight face while I told them they weren't to do anymore painting. After that they decided to wash him with the toy broom and water from Harry's bucket.


Overall a great weekend although we were a bit slow getting started this morning. I was very tempted to skip my fitness challenge class at the gym but dragged myself along. This week looks pretty busy too but with lots of good things.
