I love halloween!

Lets face it, I love an excuse to dress my kids (and me) up!

So here's my kids, Jack as a skeleton and Tom as a bat, just before setting off for a party at Stefs (Adam & Conner's dad). I wasn't sure if grown-ups were dressing up or not, so I opted for a black outfit with hat and cape figuring I could lose the accessories if I was the only one. I wasn't though! Yay!!!

We had a nice time at the party. Jack got on well with the other kids (made good friends with a little devil) and Tom was ok so long as I holding him (mummys boy, ahhhh) I have a few snaps on flickr of the other kids in their costumes too. We missed the trick-or-treating though coz Mark wanted us home for tea (he was doing the roast) but to be fair I think Jack might still be a bit young and as Tom is already growing out of his 6-9 month bat-suit I'd have worried about him getting cold where the legs gapped. Next year I'll make sure they get to go!

Jack LOVES our pumpkin! I must make sure I do a better one next year, or maybe get 2 or 3 (1 big, 2 small) and experiment a bit with them! Get Jack to help as he'll be older then too. He keeps turning the light out and running up to it saying "Wow! Pimpim!" which is his word for pumpkin :oD tried to get a video of it.... but failed :0(

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
