Wondalli Carnival

I have been meaning to write about Macie's Third Carnival Birthday Party but this past few months have just run away from me. 

We always said that we would always do a party for my darling babies every two years.....she had such a wonderful time - even with the heat and flies (I'm talking thousands of flies).....and lots of memories were made.

Here is a little visual of the day...


Each and every child went home with a lolly box filled with toys and goodies.  There was also popcorn for the kids and the lolly jars were there for the big adults kids to take for the roadtrip home. 
Macie is so very lucky to have so many amazing people in her life. Her Godfather and his wife dressed as clowns for the day and Macie's eyes nearly popped out of her head when she saw them. They even went above and beyond as they learnt to make balloon animals for every single child. It was magical.

We also organised Macie's very devoted Pa (and clever photographer) to take photos of everyone in a Photo Booth!  The photos are classic!

I had huge plans of having the desserts table, food table, etc like all the parties on the gorgeous blogs....but the reality of living on a farm in the heat with the flies and all the other elements made this not happen!  I always stress about entertaining.  I wonder what people will think of our humble little cottage (which should be treated like any human..."Its who lives on the inside that counts!") and it makes me all stressy!

But for some reason, all the stress disappeared and I just took a step back to appreciate everything around us.  People travelled so far and wide just for the afternoon.  Our backyard was filled with people who love us, support us and most importantly, adore our little girl who has the biggest heart and personality.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped us on this special day for Macie.  Heaths parents were so fantastic and managed to capture all of these photos for us.  We had friends and family travel out early to help with putting up the marquee, jumping castle and all the final finishes. 

It was a massive day filled with many laughs, flies and overflowing champagne! 

Hopefully it was a day that Macie will remember as she grows into a beautiful young lady.

Love you to the moon & back Moo.
