Talk about Deja vu!!! Im sure I said last year that I would start my christmas cards earlier this year, oh well, I will try again next year. So I made all of these in a bit of hurry (can you tell?) not very pleased with them, as always have good intentions of spending more time and care putting them together, but there we go. I still have a few christmas present projects to finish too, but I like to think I work better under pressure, although I feel that I am pushing it a bit. Had quite a busy few days what with Christmas plays for both Poppi and Riley, a secret trip to toys r us, which was so much fun. I get all excited when I get the toys for the little ones, imagining their faces on Christmas morning. Spent over an hour waiting in the doctors today with Poppi, she has an infection and hasnt been herself for the past few days, so hopefully she will be on the mend by tomorrow and back on track for the big day. I cannot wait for Friday when they finish school. I love getting them home and spending the next few days getting them all excited, wrapping prezzies etc... Dentist, for me tomorrow, cant wait - I do love a bit of route canal treatment (not!!)
Well thats it for now. Must dash and get to making the prezzies.

And this was our snowman this afternoon. I thought there was going to be tears. Sad, we were, but my little girl who always looks on the bright side, said "it ok mummy,we build a bigger one when the snow comes again" - how refreshing....

Moving onto spookier stuff, we have had a great half term, walks in the woods,pub lunch, bowling, Riley even wanted to go to Tescos, which I was really impressed with, until he said "Ive got my pocket money, once Ive picked a toy, we can go home" and then on Friday we met Hannah (aka hans crafty creations) and we had a great time. Hannah organised balloons,party games, halloween lunch and spooky goody bags. William (hannahs son) was so sweet and patient with Riley. He was showing him how to play bowling on the Wii and showed him over and over again until he grasped it.Thank you Hannah it was fab to meet you, you are very kind and made us feel so welcome.
Then yesterday, we went to my mums for a halloween tea. Poppi and Riley loved it, they had a halloween chocolate treasure hunt in the pitch black, with just a torch each and Apple bobbing, which was hilarious - every time Riley went under the water he shook himself like a dog, splashing water everywhere and the bowl was a bit deep for Poppi, so every time she dunked her under she was near enough doing a headstand trying to reach the apples, anyway we had a really fab evening - thanks mum for decorating the house and making so much fun for the little ones (and me)
And finally, well its just so simple, yet genius isnt it???
