Roald Dahl Day & a Lego House...

... Last Wednesday was Roald Dahl Day, so school asked all pupils to dress as a character from one of his books on Friday! Little Miss went as The Fantastic Mr Fox...(not the best of photos, but other children were in all the others)

This weekend was spent mostly cleaning (the oven took FOREVER!!), but this afternoon we ventured out to Denbies Wine Vinyard, where James May has built a house from Lego...It was fantastic! Apparantly he even spent the night in the house last week, but sadly it is being taken down next week...How was your weekend?...

Oh what fun we had...

It's over halfway through September and already we seemed to have crammed alot into the month! This is a busy time of year in our house, the youngest two have birthdays, and so do it seems alot of their friends!! Of course that means lots of parties, celebrating and making presents!!! And of course that also means cake making... Now, here in the mad house we are quite partial to baking, however when the requests are for a light sabre cake and a poodle cake, I have to say I was a little concerned with the challenge!! My Aunt is a fab cake decorator and was due to come and stay, however she had a bad turn and wasn't able to make the journey from Liverpool ,so having made promises to the children based on her help, I was daunted at flying solo!! I had also made the mistake of showing the little munchkin a picture on the very clever April's blog http://cakemakestheworldabetterplace.blogspot.com/ of a light sabre cake she had made, so that is what he had his heart set on!! Thanks for the tips April!! As you can see below, it turned out quite well...
And finally I shall leave you with a picture of the Birthday boy with his Daddy, with a birthday rainbow sent from Heaven with love... A perfect end to his perfect 4th Birthday...

Back to school...

Yippee.............two back, one to go!! Eldest started secondary school and Little Miss started Junior (middle) school today, so a few nerves but secretly I think all were excited ( I know I was!! )
Of course a certain little munchkin had to get in on the action... He is sooooooooo ready for school, but has another year of preschool as he's a September Baby!!


Hope back to school goes/went smoothly for everyone and Good Luck to those starting school (and their mummys! x)...
