Birthday Preparations

My baby's turning 5 and I've decided to spoil him a little this year. This year is the first time he's inviting his kindy friends over. Since we'll be overrun by lots and lots of children, I thought I would outsource the entertainment, so I hired a balloonist/magician and a face painter. We've also got the toy house outside and the pool to keep them occupied as well. Hopefully (keeping fingers crossed) the entertainers are good and the parents can chit chat for a bit.

I've shopped for most of the food ingredients, so all that's left is preparing it. This year we're having soto ayam, shepherd's pie, cocktail sausages, salsa and chips, pasta olio, fruit salad, carrot cake and eclairs. I think that should be enough since at last count the number of adults totalled 35 and children 40.

I'm pretty excited about it and it'll probably be loads of fun for everyone. For me it's nice to meet up with friends and family. One thing's for sure, I'm going to be dead tired at days end.
