The Party!

A little late, I have been very ill over the last week and previous to that my Macbook broke!!
It is however now fixed, so I can get on with taking account our life and times a little better :)

Molly's Birthday Party was wonderful.
I didn't get many snaps as I was so busy! And worst of all I didn't get a picture of Molly and her daddy!! OOPS.
My excuse is that he spent most of it in the kitchen hiding.
In fact I didn't get many family photo's at all so please forgive the collection. 
I've thrown in a couple from the decorating process and the invitations 
(most of which didn't get sent out!)
On another note my rainbow cake and Red Velvet cupcakes went down a treat- 
I can bake! Who knew!?
Molly coped so well, turns out she's quite the little party baby at one.
If the first party sets precedent for the rest, then we're in for a busy few years, next time I'm downsizing the guest list, or buying a bigger house!!

These last ones of my Nain are my favourite. I spied them in the background. Stupidly I didn't get a picture of her and Molly (She's Molly's Great Grandmother or Hén Nain) but I love how natural she is in these which is better than any posed picture. She tends not to smile in photographs, I don't know why because she is so beautiful. I don't know anyone who knows more about Literature and life than she. Molly, Jamie and I are lucky to have the family we do :)

A big thankyou to everyone who came and spoiled Molly, she had a great time.
Cheers to the next year!
