This year, as a result of hosting 2 back-to-back dinner parties, we ended up sitting out our family dinner which took place on the 25th (the kids got the presents anyway, which was all that mattered!) and got really knackered as we ended our 2nd round on the 26th. While hosting dinner parties for such wonderful company was a pleasure, it certainly proved to be no easy feat.
I got to know Luke’s pals other-halves better through the mingling sessions, which was real nice… there was also quite a lot of hinting going around about considerations to start a family in 2009. Hah!
All in all, both parties were great successes and we couldn’t be more grateful to both mums for helping out despite their busy schedules.
Also, with the new entertainment room done up (and the kids totally enjoyed themselves, leaving their parents free for a good 2-3 hours) and the new trellis for Al fresco seating done; we’re definitely looking forward to organizing more parties!
