Happy Halloween.:D
We dont really celebrate Halloween, its just a bit of fun.
This year I decided that we would make some Jac-o-lanterns. I went along to my local supermarket and was astounded at just how much 2 pumpkins cost!!! OMG we wont be doing this again next year!
Anyway the boys had so much fun with their dad scooping out the pumpkin flesh and making the spooky faces.
We lit them up tonight and put them in our windows.
They looked great as you can see. Surprise, surprise, we had about 5 knocks from Trick or Treaters :D
It was alot of fun. Hope you guys had fun too.

Kids workshop

Forgot to post these photos of what the kids made at my workshop.
They had a great time painting the body and head of the parrot. It was a pirate theme so we made these cute pirates that moved their arms and legs.

Its always so much fun and we all share lunch afterwards, while the kids play. I LOVE doing my workshops, hope the kids and mums enjoy it as much as I do :D

EB card swap

This is the card I have created for our monthly card swap.
We had a sketch to go by and it had to be spring colours.
I hope I have accomplished both :S
It was only a very small group this month, which is a bit sad.
Next month is our last for the year and of course its Xmas cards. I love making Xmas cards, so am hoping to get going with that really soon. :D

My cuddly one :D

My youngest one, Owen has always been a very cuddly one. He has a special bear that he actually made. My bestie in the UK sent it for his 4th birthday and he fell in love with Ben as soon as he made him.
We had to stuff him and dress him.
Of course I just HAD to scrap him, being an important friend in his life. LOL

When I had completed this page and Owen had seen it, he immediately asked me to do a page of all of his friends.
This was quite a feat because he has so many, and of course they all have names. When he goes to sleep at night he has to set them all up in the right position so they can guard him at night time and scare the nightamares away.
It must be working as we havent had any bad dreams for over a year now :D
Owen is such a lovely little fella and I just love the way he clings onto some of his young ways, hope it lasts :D

We all went to Scienceworks today to visit the Dinosaur exhibition. It was a glorious day. The boys were very interested to see the animatronic dinosaurs and found the whole experience really amazing.
We then went to see the Planetarium, where you lye back in your seats and watch the night sky. It is pretty incredible.
Owen in particular was very curious about the whole thing, and we had lots of questions afterwards.
Outside they had some schools participating in a solar car/boat competition which was really good to watch.

A really good family day had by all. I love these sorts of days. There are some great memories formed on days like these :D

Heres the link if youd like to visit :D

Aww Brothers

Was just thinking today as I finished the `mates` layout above, how lucky I am to have 2 such beautiful boys :D
There is 2 and 3 months difference between them, exactly. They were both born on the 1st of the month.
They have always got on so well together, and when they do disagree, its only for a few minutes, then they are back to being best of mates.
They play together for hours, making up imaginary games with Lego, or play acting a scene from a movie etc.
Its so nice to see that they really enjoy each others company so much. Owen really doesnt know what to do with himself when Liam just wants to read. He usually comes and bugs his Mum!!LOL
I am so proud of them and how they are growing into wonderful young men.
I really hope they continue to stay such good mates in their adult lives.
Love you so much my beauties XXXXX

Yes we had to endure this!! I went with 3 kids to watch this. The kids thought it was just great, especially with their scratch and sniff cards!!
Im sorry but I just found it plain boring. It was just about bearable :S
Aw well as long as the munchkins are happy thats the main thing right?

Awww so cute

Aww look- how cute!
This is what happens most mornings in our house. Our gorgeous dog Marley always lies outside the boys door waiting to do his duty and wake them up.
Poor old thing, who is now 12 years old, is finding it slightly difficult reaching the bedside now, but he still wakes them.
Its soooo cute to watch as he tries to lick them to wake them.
Hes been doing this since they have slept in bed. When they are sleeping over somewhere else, he gets very confused LOL.
Just had to scrap this as its such a memory, that one day wont happen :(
