Holly’s 6th Birthday celebrations – 17 November 2012

Turning from 5 to 6 is a major event in a child’s life and Holly had been getting increasingly excited about her impending birthday as the days grew ever closer.

This morning she was awake from around 6am and opening her first presents by 7am.  Her main present from us was a Nintendo DS Lite – the same as Rebekah already has.

Being her birthday, Holly was able to choose her breakfast and opted for egg, bacon, sausage, beans and toast.

Later in the morning we went over to Mum’s where Holly opened presents from her Grandma as well as some from Auntie Heather and Uncle Martin.

Holly’s main celebration was a birthday party at Pizza Hut to which she invited six of her closest friends (all girls).  Rebekah also tagged along in a cross between being a big sister and an occasional helper.

We arrived at around 11.45am in readiness for a 12pm start.  The girls enjoyed putting their own toppings on their pizza bases as well as the infamous Ice Cream Factory.

We found the staff there very helpful and the whole party went off very well.

In the afternoon we visited Sarah’s parents where Holly received a few more presents.

All in all, Holly had a very enjoyable sixth birthday spent with family and friends.

The following day we went round to Heather’s house where Holly shared her Larry the cucumber birthday cake.
