Happy Birthday Hannah - 9 Years Old!!

It was Hannah's ninth birthday on Sunday! She wanted to have a camping sleep over with two of her best friends and a campfire with sausages cooked over it! I was a little bit worried as she has never had a sleep over before and is often quite nervous at night, so we decided the best thing to do would be to put the tent up in the lounge room where the girls would be safe, and have an afternoon cook out with her friends and their families. It worked out really well!

We had a fire in our fire basket, the children had fun with a bubble machine and water balloons, they toasted marshmallows and played. Hannah had some lovely birthday presents, a Moshi monsters Cake and lots of yummy food. She was really excited to have her loose tooth come out on her birthday and wrote a letter to The Tooth Fairy before she went to sleep. She left it in her room so that the tooth fairy wouldn't have to venture into the tent.

Lunch!! 

Alex volunteered to be fire keeper and chef - Thanks Alex :-)

Dancing in the bubbles!

Moshi Cake with a flower candle that my mum bought.


The candle played Happy Birthday


'Make A Wish'

Ready for bed - it took another 4 hours to actually go to sleep though !!

Toothy Gap!!
Thankfully the weekend weather was hot and sunny and Monday was a Bank Holiday so the girls who slept over stayed with us for most of the day and played in Hannah's new paddling pool which we bought her for her birthday.

It took over 3 hours to fill this pool, and it was freezing!! They still had fun though, and luckily it came with a solar cover so should warm up pretty quickly!

It's deep enough to float on a boogie board in it and has plenty of room for three little girls to chill out in the sun!

Guess where Hannah is going to spend the summer?
Thank you to everyone who made her day special, she had lots of presents and cards and messages and a really happy day!

What a fab day! AS always Susie, you manage to pull out all the stops in making her birthdays so special and as always Hannah wears that lovely smile!!

So I'm hoping that you get plenty of sunshine for backyard pool fun, either that or Hannah will need to wear a wet suit and hot chocolate will be needed in liberal amounts to keep her warm!!

hugs to you both

Thank you so much San :-) After the weather today i think we may be going down the wet suit and hot chocolate route - the rain hasn't stopped her wanting to play in the pool though!!

Happy Birthday wishes to Hannah...looks like a great birthday celebration:) I've never seen anything like that flower candle!
We just got a tent, and my girls are ready to set it up:)
The pool is awesome! We are planning on getting one next year. I know the girls would spend all summer in it for sure.
Blessings!
