It couldn't have been a better theme to celebrate Alice's sixteenth birthday. She and her amazing family put in so much effort decorating, organising and pulling off one of the best parties I've ever been to. The rain came down off and on, but that didn't spoil the fun. Many games were played, much eating, talking, laughing and being hobbits was done. It couldn't have been more splendid.
India and I drove down to New South Wales with some dear friends. The previous night, Eebee, India and I had put our hair up in rags, so it was all curly and hobbity like (mostly) for the party. In the end, I didn't end up as a German hobbit, but that's ok. I was more pleased with actually having my hair curled. We arrived at the party an hour and a half later (because we forgot about daylight savings...!), but that didn't seem to bother Alice and we got right into the fun.
Beautiful birthday lady.
Thank you so much for one of the best birthday parties ever Alice. It was an amazing adventure (!) we hobbits will never, ever forget it!
p.s. A big thank you to Mrs. Somervaille & Mrs. Hogbin for taking a few of the photos when I was too busy enjoying myself to bother! (or when I actually lost my camera in the dark and was searching for it for a couple hours...um, yes.)
