My Sunday Photo 31-12-2017

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


This photo was taken on Christmas morning when the little ones were opening their stockings. Master R was more interested in the things Miss A got in her stocking of course! Each year Miss A understands more about what Christmas is all about and her excitement definitely built up a lot more this year. Master R still had no idea what was going on but was happy to open presents and go with the flow!

Love comparing year on year photos and it's amazing to see just how much these two have changed in a year as this photo from last year shows!

My little elves after they'd completed the Elf Adventure Challenge this afternoon. It was great fun and the perfect activity for Christmas Eve to get us in the mood.

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


Our little angel in her first school nativity play.

So immensely proud of her. She spoke so clearly, knew all the songs and she did all the actions and signing. A fab job done by the staff.

Siblings - December 2017

Saturday, 16 December 2017

Joining up with The Siblings Project with these photos of Miss A and Master R.

I think this is my favourite one from the last month as their faces just make me smile. Little Miss A was invited to a super hero party and Master R tagged along! They had such a fun time.

Then of course there have been lots of Christmas events we've been to and the kids have met Father Christmas on at least 3 different occasions now. Luckily they're not of an age where they ask too many questions. They're just happy to have a chat and accept a small gift from him (usually chocolate!).





Finally a picture taken on the day of Children in Need. Miss A had a silly hat day at school and Master R had fancy dress at nursery so went as the Hungry Caterpillar.


Their relationship is really growing and they seem to really enjoy each other's company a lot of the time. Their favourite time of day seems to be chasing each other around or jumping on each other about half an hour before bedtime. They seem to both get a last second wind and get really giddy. But it's so funny to watch them together and hear their giggles.

I can't believe it's the end of the year and the first full year of these two being in each other's lives. It has been so amazing to record them each month. Master R is no longer a baby but a cheeky toddler and Miss A has become such a beautiful little girl who has matured immensely particularly over the last couple of months since she started school. These pictures show what a close relationship they continue to have. I love it when Miss A says things like 'he's my best friend!'. We're so very proud of them both. I can't wait to see what the next year brings for these two!

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


Deep in conversation with Santa!

Miss A had a lovely chat with him when we saw him yesterday. He was really lovely and took the time to ask her lots of questions. Thankfully there were no surprises when he asked what she wanted for Christmas and she told him a blue camera which is what she's getting!

Stick Man Christmas Fun

Sunday, 3 December 2017

We enjoyed a fun morning of Stick Man activities with Forest Explorers in Delamere Forest!

The session started with a book reading of The Stick Man (we'd also watched the film before setting out to get us in the mood!). The kids all knew the story well.

Then each child was given a stick from which to build their own Stick Man. Each stick had legs so we ventured outside to find a suitable stick for arms and other materials to make hair, clothes etc. Using just pipe cleaners, the Stick Men were assembled. There was such a variety and they were so individual to each child.

The next activity was making a wooden Santa. The children were given a carved wooden block, paint, glue, pompoms and googly eyes. It was so simple and yet it looks fab! Definitely a decoration we'll keep and have out each year.

It was then time to venture outside again. This time deeper in to the woods to make the Stick Men (and women) a home. Miss A worked with another girl to create a house which then had a sofa and TV inside!


The final activity was to roast marshmallows on the campfire. Miss A loves marshmallows so she was really excited to get to do this.

It was nice that the kids had things to take home at the end of the session based on a story that Miss A is really familiar with. We've previously taken part in a Forest Fairies activity morning which was also really good. Forest Explorers host various family events in the school holidays so it's worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page for details.

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


The kids have seen Santa twice this week at various events! This was taken at a local Christmas Fair. Master R isn't sure what to make of the man in red yet but Miss A gets so excited. It's such a magical time for kids.
