Add a tonne of sweets, an afternoon of spooky cookie icing and face painting and we have some very happy children.
I’m itching to brush their teeth though….
You can’t escape Halloween in our house. Today my lot had a dress rehearsal for the big spooky day tomorrow.
It hasn’t gone well, Gruff doesn’t want to be Batman/ a Cyberman / Spiderman, all very good Halloween options you might think but no, these are all no good.
And what, you may ask, does he want to be?
Gruff wants to be a ….
Yes a pumpkin. I have spent all day trying to convince my stubborn two year old that the above options are way cooler but the orange round vegetable option wins out each time.
Ah well, I have orange paint…
…dancing to some music on the radio.
They didn’t need a reason, they just felt like it.
The future is glowing! Bonnie has a new glow in the dark ball.
Nothing like the sight if a glowing ball happily making it’s way back to its owner in the pitch black!
I’ve had a day of defiance.
From a nine year old who was getting Pokemon withdrawal symptoms because her television had been turned off…(yes, apparently it’s her television), to a dog who decided lattes were more preferable than returning back to her screeching owner.
Is Monday over yet?
It’s bedtime and we’re missing someone, someone very important.
He may be scruffy, a little worn around the ears but he really can’t get to sleep without him.
Have you seen him?
…do not include a real life, ring-tailed lemur, (although if I may say so, they are very, very fluffy and very, very cute).
I don’t think it would stand still enough for me to wrap it and my wrapping is pretty lousy at the best of times.
A trip to the animal park can be arranged, however, complete with a replica T-rex and cake.
Endangered species excluded, have a lovely fifth birthday my little dinosauraholic.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your well wishes and comments!
I had no idea how many of you would respond with so many comments and stories of your own to share too, it has really meant so much.
Millie is ok, I shall be posting again about it on Friday and I will tell you what I have done to resolve the situation for her and us as a family.
Hugs from all of us, Angie x
Did you realise that a cardboard box, foil and glue makes the best astronaut’s suit?
Draw on a few buttons and you’re ready for your first space walk.
Just watch out for that sleeping astro-dog…
Bonnie is fast, stupidly fast. She’s obviously a crossbreed, a large gangly, bony crossbreed that runs fast and eats loads.
A pig-dog perhaps?
Meet our new girls, names may change around as no one can agree on who has which name at present!
She’s still hoping Rebecca Adlington is going to take over from me with her swimming lessons.
Dream on little fish.
