As you know this year has had it's ups and downs and many challenges with Dan's health.
We decided that Isabella would have a big party this year as we scaled things back last year.
Preparations went ahead for her 7th birthday. It was a huge task considering I work full time and Dan has just begun radiation treatment this past week and it is already affecting his energy levels and other side effects.
Regardless, I was determined to try to make it all go as close to plan as possible.
I am always a little disappointed that I cannot do all that I hope for and that all details are not exactly as I would like. I also realise I am only 1 mummy and not Superwoman. I can live with it...I'm getting better at that as the years pass.
I realised that the kids are happy if they see pretty decorations, have some yummy food and get to laugh, scream, run and get spoilt as much as possible in 3 hours. That I can do! :)
I was so pleased that Isabella was surrounded with her friends, family and her beautiful teacher also came along which all the girls were super excited about!! Thanks Jules! xxx
This year I decided to have a photographer to capture the fun. Linda Davies is just starting out with her business and I know her well from when I taught her beautiful girl a few years back. Linda did a wonderful job, she captured the mood of the party and especially my cheeky monkey, Isabella. Thank You Linda!
So, sit back and enjoy the festivities.
Once again, I am happy to answer any questions about anything to do with the party. So feel free to ask away.
