Liam's 8th birthday

Melbourne Cup day was more than just a horse race in our house. It was also Liam's 8th birthday. EIGHT! Wow, I so clearly remember my own 8th birthday and here I am now celebrating my sons.

Each year the preparation starts early. The boys choose the theme of their party themselves, and this year Liam chose Monsters Vs Aliens. We finally found an oline party supply store that had Monsters Vs Aliens goodies in stock and sat together selecting what we needed and placing the order, followed by both Liam and Ethan stalking the letterbox for the next two days until that magic package arrived. We send out the invitations, made up party bags, baked a 'Bob' cake (thankyou soooo much Liam for choosing the easiest character!), made Bob jelly's and cut out a huge Bob figure to play 'pin the eye on Bob', and we decorated the house in blue, orange and green. Oh and there was also a little birthday pressie organising going on too.

And finally the big day arrived.

Poor Ethy didn't stand a chance, he couldn't even reach his donut - hahahaaaaa.but a helping hand from Daddy made all the difference :)
I didn't get a whole lot of photos as I was busy being a mum and didn't want to miss the day because I was behind the camera all the time. Happy 8th my gorgeous boy. You are the best and we all love you dearly. xx
