A Surprise Party!

Last night Mitchell headed off to Dale's for 
what he thought was a movie night. 
A Macca's run was done and they were 
dropped here where Mitchell's friends were all waiting!
As it was a movie night, Mitchell decided to wear his new Collingwood pyjama pants! Such a lovely outfit for a party! 
 We had all been able to keep this a secret because as far 
as Mitchell was concerned, he was having a party in a couple of weeks during the school holidays.
 
Noel and Nelson
 
Serrin, Mitchell and Zoe
 
Amber, Nelson, Mitchell, Renee and Matt 
Liam, Dale, Renee and Zoe
 
Zoe, Carly, Chelsea and Steph
 
Nelson and Austin
 
Another cake!
 
There were a few more words this time at his speech.
Renee did a great job organising his friends.
 
James and Nelson (he kept popping up everywhere!)
 
Carly, Austin, Colleen, Jack, Seana and Glenn
 
Kendra, James and Claire

The funny thing is, I have been baking in front of Mitchell over the last couple of weeks and stocking up on things in the freezer. I told him I might as well make things now and then I won't have to rush when it's time for his party. I'd also say "these were on special this week, so I bought them". 

It was quite funny. Hopefully, I haven't bored you too much!
