EIGHT IS GREAT!
We have an 8 year old in the house! My baby turned 8 on Sunday.
We like to spread out the birthday celebrations so we had a family meal on Sunday. He was allowed to choose where we went and he chose..... yum char at Grand Century in Tory Street. A boy of immaculate taste, I'd say.
This coming Saturday he has an army themed party - Action Indoor Sports run by the lovely Vanessa Chatfield (daughter of the famous cricketer!), and pizza at home for 9friends.
And because I'm not working this week I have time to turn to my domestic goddess side. So this morning I thought outside the square and made these 'ration packs' instead of loot bags. Now for the army cake...
(The cake in the photo is courtesy of Moore Wilson's as I totally forgot about it on his actual birthday because I knew I was making the real birthday cake for his Saturday party.) Ah well - we all need two cakes.
