The celebration of Joshua's Birthday was a very drawn out affair. It started on the 18th of August with his party. We held it this early so the my parents could be here for it. Due to all the uncertainty & upheaval with Hannah, I only managed to get the invitations out a week before his party, so many already had other plans. So it was a very small party, with only 2 of his friends & our parents, but this was fine.
The theme was a soccer party. So the invitation was a soccer ball & all the food was round. There was meatballs, cheese ball chips, melon balls, soccer ball biscuits. The cake was a soccer field complete with plastic players & soccer ball candles.
He is still VERY much into trains & playing with his train set & had been going round for months asking for various pieces, so he received a couple of them. While in Skejby he had learnt how to ride a løbecycle & had LOVED racing up & down the corridor & round the tracks in the play area of the Family House. So Tom's family all put together & bought him one.
On his actual birthday, we went to McDonalds for morning tea (received vouchers for 2 free Happy Meals & coffees). Then the ladies at my International Ladies Group threw him a party at the library where we meet each Monday. Then it was home for some quality family time & dinner, followed by all Tom's family coming over for coffee & cake.
