    Right now she's parked in front of the telly waiting for her bombers... Something came up about birthdays & I asked what she wanted.... Her reply "to go to the footy" told her footy is finished around her birthday... Guess we have to go the next best thing

    Sounds awesome zf, it seems to be something your dds would absolutely love. So if you've got the money, go for it. Seems like an experience for your whole family not just dd, so therefor you're getting more value for your money.

    I've emailed a couple of people to see if there is ANY way we can get her fave player to sign her top before her birthday... I doubt it will happen but no harm in asking right?

    If you can afford to do it then go for it. If it will stretch the purse a little then I would do something simpler

    In all honesty kids remember birthday parties regardless of how much it costs. My ds2 is still talking about his birthday party a few years ago which I was disappointed about as it rained and away went the jumping castle and cue the local hall.

    This year for my dds 6th. We are having a joint party with 2 of her classmates as they all turn 6 within 3 weeks of each other. Saves on costs.

    Your daughter will enjoy a party regardless of cost or size. It's their special day and they know it

    I think that sounds like a great party (but that's not surprising considering the theme!!). I always spend far more than I expect even if we just have a few family members over for dinner for birthdays.

    re-the guernsey, I wonder if there are any more open training sessions? that's sometimes a good way to get signatures, although tough to get there sometimes

    Yeah we missed the last open session... We live 45 min away too which doesn't help.

    I've e-mailed to book looking at it there are probably going to be 25+ children invited (that includes my 2) and with that I am assuming close to 30 adults - so if we can get away with it for under $600 then it works out at say $10 a head that's not bad and cheaper than a play centre.... I just have to keep reminding myself of that!

    She is going to freak out!
    It will be the birthday of a life time, I am also hoping there is an open training session between now and then, if there is I might ask FIL to go down and get something signed for her and that can be a present from him... he lives closer too so would be easier.

    Very exciting!!!

    TFB- don't let the prices scare you that much. It's a lot but $500 is like spending about 200 pounds.

    ZF FWIW, we just spent $300 on food alone for DD2's party on Sunday. 25 people came and it was at home. Add in grog, lolly buffet, cake, decorations, popcorn machine hire, carnival games and prizes.......

    Well lets just say your party is VERY reasonable!!!!!!!!!

    if we didn't live an hour or so away, I'd offer to try and get the signature.

    if (hopefully) they make finals then they should do an open training session.
