Yesterday was Nathan's very belated Jedi Birthday Party. We had a great time. At the start of the party we gave all the children a Jedi costume - just light brown fabric cut into a tunic and dark brown fabric to be the belt and shoulder sash. No sewing involved and they looked great! Real little Jedis!
We made light sabers for the kids with balloons which they used to attack the incoming missiles - which were round balloons we threw into the air.
Nathan had a light saber birthday cake - which was just a large Jam Sponge Roll for the handle and small ones for the saber part.
The kids all had a great time, the weather was perfect, the children all well behaved.
Afterwards, Kerin, Rick and the girls, Mark's parents and Andrew and Clare and their kids stayed back for a BBQ. By the time we went to bed we were exhausted and not looking forward to one hour less sleep (thanks to the start of Daylight Savings!) But we did have a great time, and Nathan loved it so it was certainly worth all of the effort!
