Aaron stayed up late the night before Tabitha’s birthday to help me decorate the front room. He then woke up early the next morning to blow up the balloons, and was thrilled to be in charge of the helium tank!
Tabitha requested a lemon drizzle cake, which was almost a disaster when it got stuck in the tin but fortunately tasted delicious.
We had visitors in and out all day. DDS and Grandpa came first in the morning as they were leaving for their holiday. Esther took her first step while they were here, but I was in the kitchen! After lunch, Auntie Hannah and Auntie Jennifer arrived, along with the three smallest cousins. Later in the afternoon we had a visit from Granny (sadly Grandad wasn’t feeling well), and then Nanny joined us in the evening for a Chinese takeaway.
Tabitha declared it “the best birthday ever”! I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking.
