Well, Lisa had finally had her 5th birthday. We’ve been hearing about this since her 4th party ended, and no doubt we’ll be spending the next year listening to how soon her 6th birthday party will be coming along.
The kids both had a great day today. Lisa had to wait until about 1130 or so to open her gifts because we wanted to have the webcam on so Nana Shirley, Nana Carol and Grandpa Bob in Canada could watch the opening of the gifts. The web cast went ok but next year I really must try something better, a proper Vlog sort of thing.
Some pics of the main gift opening from this morning
At around 5pm our friends all came around with their kids (Yang with Oliver and Olivia, followed by Stuart (her partner), plus Sam and Liz with their kids Tabbie, Ted and the as yet unborn baby to be 🙂 ). Yang and Stuart gave both Lisa and Emma a “Red Pack” a typical Chinese gift, a red pack with £10 for each of them. Liz and Sam brought over a pair of Groovy Girls dolls. We put Emma’s away until her birthday though.
Here are some pics from the party in the afternoon

Thanks to everyone that sent gifts for the kids. Lisa really enjoyed them all and I’m sure Emma will when she gets to open hers too! Watch this space for Emma’s birthday party results 🙂
