Well, busy busy week (or so)!
We decided to have a Fairies Party - from the TV show - and it was amazing!! The kids all had a blast (contrary to the photos, soon as I whipped the camera out, smiles ran away!! LOL ) The only complaint I had about the whole day was that A's got given a broken Crown, but seriously, that's it!! They had Fairy dancing, and games and coloring in and snacks and more dancing!!
A's was wearing an outfit crafted by my very own hands (Up till 4AM making it - terrible horrible fabric for a beginner to sew with, hated it with a freaken passion by the time I was done, which is why A is wearing a croptop looking shirt!) But the finished product looks fabulous!! So good in fact, I'm tempted to sew with it again for something for me! But GOODNESS, its nasty to sew!
Even P got into the act - My gorgeous little Glow Bug!!
We had the usual Kindy runs and Rummage Sale - now that the re-sellers have found the Rummage Sale, its horrible - pushing, shoving, running, its insane!!! Probably not going back. Which is sad, but hey.
Now A had been given a air dry clay set for her birthday which was FAB because as previously posted, we were on the lookout for some clay to create with. So out it came, with a bowl of water and off to imagination land we went! A made a Birds Nest, I made a floppy-eared rabbit and DH made a very strange looking duck. Unfortunately, we don't have photos of the finished products as DH, in his infinite wisdom, placed them somewhere 'safe' to dry LOL, but the creative process is the best bit IMO anyway.
Now, the bane of my existence has been colored balls.You know the ones, you see them at the playcentres. Well, when A was still a baby, we (strangely) thought it would be a great idea. Well, that notion was soon demolished beneath an almost constant struggle to keep them contained! 5 years later and P has discovered them too!!
Heard giggling and my climbing toddler is IN the ball box, cacking himself!!
Help from his Big Sister to get out (remember a few posts back about needing Photographic Proof the Playroom was clean??? )
Then, for the next three hours, they played Trains!!
We also volunteered at The Birth Place Twice in the last fortnight, such fun.
