Even in my teens and early 20s I never really enjoyed going on nights out to the pubs and clubs. I’ve always been something of a homebody and I’m happy to continue this way now I’m in my 40s! I much prefer spending a cosy […]
Ella’s just left for her first day at secondary school. She was a bit nervous but very excited. Ant’s taking her in the car today with 2 of her friends seeing as it’s her first day but tomorrow she’s going to be walking.
It’s Ella’s 11th birthday today 🙂
Ella’s 11th birthday Pool Party & BBQ
Today she had some friends round for a pool party and BBQ. They all had a great time and were phoning their parents when it was getting towards the end of the party, to see if they could stay longer!
They also had a hair and beauty station. Ella’s friend, Amelia did different hairstyles for everyone and covered their hair in hair mascara and glitter! The whole place was covered in glitter and unicorns.
KayCee made Ella’ cake for her. She did a magnificent job, everyone thought it was wonderful 🙂
They had fun taking selfies!
Happy birthday beautiful girl; glad you enjoyed your party. Love you xx
Happy 13th Birthday to our beautiful daughter, KayCee.
Her 13th birthday celebrations have been planned since the start of the year! It’s gone through a few (!) changes but the final plan is to start off at home having a pool party followed by a BBQ followed by a roller disco at a local Fun Farm.
The party is planned for tomorrow because it’s the only night they do the roller disco at Fun Farm.
13th Birthday Celebrations – 3rd August
Her party plan has changed at the last minute due to the Fun Farm cancelling the roller disco because the DJ is on holiday, despite Kellyann (KayCee’s older sister) phoning on August 1st to see if they had to book or if they could just turn up.
She was told they could just turn up and it had been quiet lately so they might have the place to themselves.
Suffice to say, Kellyann was not at all happy to be told on the day of the celebrations that they now couldn’t go.
Change Of Plans
They were all a bit disappointed but they enjoyed going bowling instead.
After bowling, they came back here just before 8 pm to sing happy birthday and have birthday cake. They then decided to go back into the pool! Parents came to collect them at 9 pm and I’m happy to say that KayCee really enjoyed the day 🙂
I’m not putting a photo on of her friends because I don’t have their/their parent’s permission to post any
As it was Ella’s last day at junior school yesterday I thought it would be nice for her to see the four back to school photos we took at the start of each year.
And here she is at the end of her junior school journey. It really amazes me how grown up she’s looking now compared to those first photos!
I started asking Kaycee and Ella some questions at the end of the school year in 2012. I love being able to look back at the changes
These are KayCee’s answers at the end of year 8.
KayCee’s still doing brilliantly at school. She always puts in the extra effort and her hard work pays off.
In September she has her little sister joining her at big school!
As always, we’re very proud of her. 🙂
