Ellen's 21st Birthday Party!

Time to share some pics from Ellen's 21st birthday party - yay! It was a dress-up party and the theme was fairy-tales. We held it in a little country hall ...


We strung up lanterns and decked out the tables with homemade bunting ...


 and added mushroom forests and woodland critters as centrepieces ...



 We cleaned up all our favourite cups for afternoon tea ...


And made sure everything was ready for a fantastic party for a fantastic girl ...







 The guests all got into the spirit of things ...



 There were lots of fun games played ...


 Some were fiercley contested ...



We shared memories and reflected on just how lucky we are to have such an amazing family and truly wonderful friends ...


Of course there was cake ...


And most of all there was a celebration of a child who is now a fantastic young woman. Here she is with her lovely young man ...


I think he may have been the best present of all since he has come all the way from England to be with her ...


Cogratulations to Ellen and congratulations to all of us who raised her!
