Halloween out the way…bring on Christmas!

I took the children round to friend’s last night for a Halloween party. They had a great time (despite Emily being on the brink of illness, she is in bed with a fever today). Here they are all dressed up and ready to go.



Isaac was a the witch’s cat by the way – he didn’t like having the hood up!) I realised all was not well with Emily when she burst into tears over marshallow toasting (!) but she refused to go home until the end, by which time she was feeling quite poorly, poor thing.

Our Pumpkin

We had lots of trick-or-treaters and I had to put a sign on the door in the end as we ran out of treats!

So yes, with both the children’s birthdays in the week before Christmas things are usually a tad busy round here. Not this year though, oh no. I will remain cool, calm and organised this year and not still be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve. I have my battle plan (tweaked from SimpleMom) and so far have stuck to it.  We have ordered our cards and have the address labels ready to print, bought (and wrapped) some presents and I have started making some gifts too so I am feeling pretty good. Need to start on the baking this week and stock up the freezer!

  1. Hi…….Thanks so much for commenting on my blog about the Reggio Emilia lesson that I wrote about. That whole philosophy makes so much sense to me. I’ve got a lot to learn about it though, and Lori’s blog has been really helpful to me.

    I love your pumpkin artistry, by the way. I never mastered that one. jan

  2. I love their outfits for Halloween, they look fabulous!

  3. WooHoo!

    I’ve found you at last! loving the new look blog.

    I tried using wordpress for a while, but I got so frustrated with it.

    I always like the look of wordpress, the themes are so clean and clear cut.

    Not sure if you’ve popped over to resources4home-education, but I’ve lost all my data 😦

    I have some saved in favourites, but I’m planning on doing a new resource list, I’m having a practice on freewebs at the moment, and it seems to be working OK. Keep an eye out for the new website.

    Now, lots of posts to catch up on 🙂
