Last week we got a phone call from Make a Wish inviting us to come to a Christmas Party. It was for past wish recipients and their families and was put on at a beautiful old homestead called 'Quamby Estate' at Hagley. They told us that the new owner of Quamby Estate Rob, approached Make a Wish saying that he wanted to put on a party for a charity, and Make a Wish were the lucky recipients.
The boys were so excited to go after their last day at school for the year, and it was the most beautiful warm night for it.
It went for two and half hours and had the most amazing things to do.
We had many horse and carriage rides. There were also pony rides but the boys were crazy and didn't want to have a ride.
It made Aaron's night when Hawka came out!
There were two great jumping castles.
Even Hawka had a turn or five, and had all the kids cracking up as he would roll down the slide each time.
Hawka was into the action all night which the kids loved.
They had a huge gourmet bbq with the yummiest meats, salads and jacket potatoes, and for dessert the BIGGEST frog in a pond you had ever seen, mudcake and pavlova.
The boys spent the majority of the night having turns riding in the MG cars. The owner of Quamby Estate drove one of the cars and was so fun as he would drive really fast around the golf course, dodging trees, going over bumps and racing his dog the whole way. He was the loveliest guy.
Santa even made an appearance and all of the kids were given a present each. The boys were very lucky and very spoilt.
They had live music playing the whole time and the guys were awesome - they played lots of different songs including music for the adults as well as the kids. Kobe just had to get up and dance when they played some Wiggles music.
The clowns and Hawka were cracking us up dancing really funny together.
They gave out balloons to everyone towards the end of the night.
Jay's drama teacher and he was so happy to see her and gave her a huge hug when we left.
We only wish Noah could've been there with us too. I thanked the Make a Wish volunteers for inviting us and they said not to thank them but to thank the owner Rob for putting it on as he was the one who approaced them. I really wanted him to know how much it touched us and went up and told him what a great night the boys and all of us had and that it meant a lot to see them have such a great time and told him about Noah. He was so lovely and said he was sorry to hear it and was glad that he could see the kids with smiles on their faces. There really are some amazing people in the world.
