So Allyra's birthday party went pretty well. The weather was horrible though and so everybody was inside for the party. We sent out all these invites to family and friends and then when people started arriving I started thinking 'oh my god there is heaps of people here!'and 'man, our house is small!' I started stressing on how there was hardly any chairs but as the party went on I realized it was ok and everyone seemed fine about it. She got some amazing presents and enough clothes to fill her wardrobe. I was so worried that she would be scared with all the people because she can be pretty shy but she was actually really good and I was really proud of her. Deakyn was having a ball playing with all the other kids and when Dean and I put him to bed later that night I thought a bomb had exploded in his room. Dean made this beautiful chocolate ripple cake which eveybody went mad for and poor Dean didn't even get to have some. I got to see my friend Brooke who I haven't seen for ages and who is six months pregnant. Her belly was still small and I told her that she was a bitch for looking so good and still being able to wear normal pants. She just laughed at me and said that these wear the only pants that still fitted because she could have her belly sitting over the top. Most of the people who came over hadn't seen our house before because we have only been in it for about five months and they were all commenting on how nice it was. That made us feel good and they were saying that they were happy we were finally living somewhere nice (the other house we lived in was falling apart). The party started at 2 and by the time everyone left it was 7 o'clock and we were buggered. Allyra who hadn't spoken much that day started getting all chatty and started roaming around chasing balloons we had on the floor. Deakyn was all hypo prrobably from all the party food he'd been eating and Dean and I were just happy watching them and relaxing. We had to go out and buy tea and then by th etime we had eaten and cleaned up the poor kids didn't go down to bed until 9 o'clock. We ended up sitting on the couch together and then falling asleep, so at 1 o'clock we finally went to bed.
What a crazy day, next year maybe a smaller party. The main thing is though everyone had a good time and my beautiful girl had turned one.
