The storm has settled

Until last week there was a storm in our house of b’day preps,guests coming in,we rushing till the last moment and laughter and night outs and of course food and loads of it!

Chirpy in her bestest mood enjoyed every bit of it all and she co operated well,I must say she earns a lot of brownie points for this. On the d-day she was even awake till 11 pm and was as fresh as a lily and played and laughed with all the guests who came in ! We sighed in relief that she wasn’t cranky and the party went pretty well just as we planned,of course all special thanks to Chirpy πŸ™‚

The party started with a slide show of photos of Chirpy with her people and by people I mean all everyone that she has met in this one year. Yes that means you RM, Piyu, Nuttie,Ums…every one out there :). By the time all the guests came in we also conducted a game or two for the kids that had come. Post that there was cake cutting and then dinner of course πŸ™‚

Once things like these were all done and dusted we played a small presentation made by me and husby for Chirpy,with a voice over, called ‘The first year with you Chirpy’ ! and boy the ppt looked and sounded too good and I was so,soΒ emotionalΒ at that moment,I couldn’t believe my little girl is 1 already! The time does fly and very fast at that!

Any way, the ppt was loved by people too and some of them also said that they want me to make a similar ppt for their children’s b’days :). *nice business idea that-of making invites, arranging for ppts and photos slide shows,what say? ;)*

Overall the b’day went well and we returned home happy and delighted with the remaining white forest cake πŸ™‚ Oh the pics? of course of course but first let meΒ receiveΒ them πŸ™‚ The studio wallah said the photos will be ready by tomorrow. So once they are with me I’ll share some pictures here!

The last one month was like a storm in our lives-making invites, arranging for b’day dress for Chirpy and her matching sandals, going to people’s places to invite them, making the ppt, arranging the photos for slide show, creating an e-invite, arranging for guests coming over and what not! And now when the d-day is over things seem like so dull ! There is absolutely nothing to do and I feel bored ! There is no rush of any sorts, nothing to finish by the deadline, nothing to look after and no guests to cater! sigh!

The storm has settled and so are we in the scorching hot weather ! How is the weather at your end? I hear that in some parts of the country it is raining and making people merry,sigh send some rains here too,please ?

okay so one of the friends clicked this photo on her mobile and right now this is the only pic I’ve from the party. Sharing it here…
