Today's post for Donnas Living Arrows linky is all about this weekend's party to celebrate my parents-in-law both turning 60! It was a lovely night and we all had a great time. 


Squidgy loves dressing Up, so partied the night away in her gorgeous Monsoon glittery, sequin, purple dress that my mum bought a few months ago. She was the life of the party, stealing hearts and making lots of friends.

Of course the best thing was seeing her interact with her cousin. Unfortunately they don't see each other often but when they do they are (mostly) the best of friends. Playing on the dance floor with balloons or dancing around like mad was how they spent most of the night, which was a fantastic way to wear them both out!


Little L

On the walk up to the venue, Little L fell asleep in her pushchair but of course it wasn't long before she woke up and was showing off to everyone. She ate so much food; had hugs with anyone and everyone who wanted one; showed off her walking skills; and charmed all the guests and made loads of new friends, just like her elder sister!


It was so nice to be able to celebrate with my in-laws and everyone, including our girls, had a wonderful night. It was good for me too... everyone wanted to have cuddles and help look after Squidgy and Little L which gave me a much needed break. Strange to think the next 'big' birthday celebration will be Little L's first birthday. I can't believe how quickly that is coming around!
