Birthday Party *WARNING* lots of Pix

Yesterday was the girls' combined birthday party.

We celebrated Meg's 9th birthday and Kaylin's 6th birthday. However, Kaylin's birthday is only next month, but we thought we'd haved a combined party and have everyone over on the same day.

Invitations went out, water slide was ordered, house was tidied, cakes were baked and snacks were homemade. Here's some of the photos from the fun day we had.

Since we were having the entire party outside and the kids activities were all water-related, we were praying for the rain to stay away. Luckily, our prayers were answered and it only rained that evening but not only did it rain, but we had an electrical storm which took out another fucking modem! 

Grrrrr, I'm on the 3G card at the mo so that I can get this post out and schedule something for tomorrow.

Thanx for being so patient this week with all my lazy-arsed posts.  It really was the week from hell with us all getting gastro, school term starting, back to work and organising this party...

Megan got over R800 in cash!  We went shopping today so she could buy two new XBOX games.  She's dead chuffed.  An all-round brilliant birthday bash with family and friends.

Thanx to everyone for coming and thank you to everyone for the girls' wonderful and generous gifts.  We had so much fun sharing the day with everyone.

A wonderful day I will never forget.

A joint birthday party sounds like a great idea to me, it looks like you guys definitely had a lot of fun to back up my opinion of that too. The Mr Bean cake is awesome too, I wish I had one like that!

Also, that 360 cake is rad.
