Hello lovelies... I'm offline.
Apparently, there is an upgrade going on. I haven't had internet for a few days now. Very frustrating! According to Bigpond's technical support team, based in Manila in The Philippines (!), I'll get an SMS when internet is up and running again. Hopefully it won't take too long... *wishful thinking*

Last Sunday, we had Jonah's birthday party. He is finally 6 years old, our gorgeous boy. He invited some friends from school as well as his best friend Sophie and her younger brother. This was the first time we've had many kids at home at a birthday party. The previous year, Jonah only wanted to invite one friend, Sophie. So sweet! This year was different... All up, it would be 10 kids running around having a great time.
I did lots of preparations the day before, but in the late afternoon we went away to Jonah's school's fete. It was like a huge carnival with music, fun rides for the kids, food from all over the world and fantastic fireworks at the end. We came home late and the continuation of the making of the party food and birthday cake continued... Grant had been at work since 3am so he was very tired, but stayed up until 3am decorating the cool hot rod cake we made together. He had been awake for 25hours when he finally went to bed!!
I got up at 04:43am and started baking. I made pizza buns with bacon, fresh basil and feta cheese... home made chicken nuggets... a pie, it's like a quiche with bacon, chicken and cheese. 10 mins before the party started, all food was ready to be served. I had made cupcakes, chocolate crackles with puffed rice and small chocolate balls - a Swedish favourite at kids' parties. Unfortunately, I didn't take one photo of all the yummy treats. I tell you, the table was impressive :)
We were so lucky with the weather too. Such a beautiful sunny day. It was supposed to rain, but no signs of that in our suburb. Yay :)
