Sebastian’s Star Wars inspired 5th Birthday Party with Dr Balloonman

I still cannot believe that the baby of the family, Sebastian, turned 5 last week. He had a fabulous day last Wednesday, despite having to go to school on his birthday, but his whole class sang Happy Birthday and then he chose to have McDonalds for his birthday dinner treat, but he had to wait until Saturday for his party. Last year’s dinosaur party was a roaring success, but this year he wanted something different. For the last three years we have enjoyed a Sail with Santa Cruise with City Cruises Poole in December and the host of the show …

It is no problem if my husband or teen are at home as they …

With, admittedly, pretty poor planning on my part, our birthday season starts in January with Eliza turning 6 and of course at her age, having a party is a must! For the last two years she has had Princess Parties and this year I don’t think we are going to deviaite too far from that theme as she wants another one, only with Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Tiana in attendance.

Doc McStuffins

Doc McStuffins Twitter Party

We are huge fans of Doc McStuffins in this house so when we were invited to take part in a twitter party yesterday to celebrate the new episodes of Doc in action, being shown on Disney Junior every weekday at 4.55pm we jumped at the chance. The party started at 1pm and ran for two hours and I have to admit we had a great time sharing our knowledge of all the Doc McStuffins toys and taking part in some fun activities – some which went better than others but I am very proud to have been part of the …
