Byrons 8th Birthday

Happy birthday to my gorgeous big 8 yr old boy.
I think he has had a good day.
it started with presents, a set of Nagori Drums http://http// from us, this was the compromise for a drum set
a "real" game footy from Ainsley.
a 5 in one activity table(think, table tennis etc) from the grandparents, both sides, which i manged to set up most of before 8am swimming lessons.
Then off to swimming lessons and then hungry jacks for breakfast.
i had planned on taking him to the movies but he decided he wanted to stay at home and play pool with the neighbour.
Dad came home at 12.30 and he got another gift( something dad could give him and be part of the excitement as dad started work at 4) it was a pop up , 3 in one soccer goal, cricket wicket and footy target.
All his gifts were loved.
then we had a quick tidy up and got the play room ready for 8 kids to sleep in, it is matress city down there.
Off to Teeball training via our 1st pick up for the nights party.
home in just enough time to get changed meet our guests and go out to the greyhounds.
All the kids had so much fun--it is great taking kids somewhere they have never been they were all so well behaved.
Home to matress city and the new pj's, which are a hit thank goodness they all fit haha
A bit of playing around and then the start of a movie which lasted about 15 mins till spotlight over shone the movie and they started hiding anywhere they could
once that got a tad rowdy i intervened with Cadoo http://http//

we played teams so i had to play as there was an odd number.
i think this is one of the best games i have played, it suits the WHOLE family even the littlies can play to a certain extend in a team.
and the best part it is so cheap target have it for $12.95 and on sale last week for $6.50 hence me having 2 in my gift cupboard and already gifted 2 haha.
Now they are all tucked into bed watching a movie.
i think it is time i went to bed as it will be an early morning.
but i just had to share a photo of the pj's in action.
Ainlsey was already asleep when we got home so she is not in it but all the others are.
i will also get a few more photo's of the gifts and kids tomorrow as i forgot the camera tonight.
Oh and the cake, well after an all you can eat buffet i didnt think they would need cake so we are going to do that in the morning before they go home.
But not one person went back for 2nd dessert as they were itching to get outside and run along side the track.

The PJs look fantastic - you did a terrific job & I am sure they were infinitely preferred by everyone to a lolly bag!
