Last week, my little Abbey turned two. We held her party on the weekend - here's how it went...
The theme was spring!
The day began with a list a kilometre long, so Steve and I got to work early. I soon discovered that decorating the cupcakes was a little difficult for me, so Steve did them! Then the guests arrived and it all kicked off with the kids running around, soon heading out into the backyard and showing that my decision not to organise party games was a good one - they were all very taken with a game called 'chase the chooks around the yard'.
They ran and ran all day - until cake time (the cupcakes, plus a lemon meringue cake for the adults, that went so quickly I didn't have a chance to take a photo of it until it was almost gone!). And then they played some more.
And then it was present time! Our friends were so generous with their gifts for Abbey, and she loves them all.
And the day ended as all good days should - with a couple of glasses (or, um, bottles) of champagne shared with a gorgeous friend.
I was so relieved that it all went so well.
