The gruesome birthday!

I bet you're all feeling Halloween was soooo last week!

Well yes, it was, but seeing as I promised to
show you some of the very few photos
of a very FAB birthday party,
I had best get on with it eh?

The cake!


It was going to be a
RED VELVET CAKE
but ended up being a Sainsburys chocolate one!

But we did spruce it up a bit,
as you can see.



Basil just HAD to get in on the act!
He came trick or treating with us all,
and wriggled through to the front everytime we
knocked on someones door...
funny how he learnt VERY QUICKLY
that kids drop things,
especially sweets and hot dogs etc!



Not many photos of children as they didn't stand still long enough!

Somehow I got roped into playing the
silly party games!
(yes, the kitchen is in a state, but so would anyones
in the midst of a wild and mad fun party like ours)



We all loved the lanterns
and made wishes.


Some of which I found out later were
for scramble dirt bikes???!!!?????



We had enjoyed decorating the house with lots of
spooky decorations...

...some written in BLOOD you know!


Afterwards, a very worn out pair of boys and puppy!

One of which just couldn't stay awake a moment longer.


So there you have it!

Is it Christmas now????

NO?

You mean we have to do

BONFIRE NIGHT

before we can officially
start thinking about Christmas?

Well then,
that brings me neatly round to
wishing you all a
fun packed evening tomorrow.

Keep safe everyone.


love Claire. x

Good morning Claire,
Just love that cake and as for Basil? well what words could add to the pictures? he does look knackered in that last photo. Looks like fun was had all around.
Oh and please don't mention Christmas, I've managed to deny its existence so far this year!
Oh and Lucy says hi to basil.
Best regards,
