Creating family traditions
to meet up with old friends that we don't see often enough. This proved to be the winning formula - no wasted food when people dropped out at the last minute, no stress over hiring a venue of decorating a house, and a brilliant day out into the bargain. I'm glad we did this last year since no less than 20 people cancelled the day before, mainly with an outbreak of Norovirus. This is also a good budget option since anyone who wants to come sorts out transport and food for themselves. We also put out the message that no gifts are necessary, since the effort of getting there and spending the day with them is the best gift anyone could give to the boys.
This year since I'm blogging perhaps this is the start of a new tradition - I little look back through past birthdays :)

First birthday - an early party at home with a Halloween theme and the cutest pumpkin ever (I may be biased of course)
The boys a couple of weeks ago getting ready to go to our friend's Halloween party. After he dived headlong into a puddle today I'm not sure if the outfit will be ready to see another outing tomorrow :)
