More Birthday Photos

Henrietta had a brilliant time at Build A Bear - I highly recommend it if you have one nearby.  The shop was really busy but we were allocated 'Sophie' who looked after all the kids - she was wonderful.  At the end of the party she got all the shop to sing Happy Birthday to Henrietta - how sweet was that.

Afterwards it was back home for a spot of something to eat.  Everything had to be 'bear' related - here are a few photos:

Would like to say I baked it myself, but I just cant lie.  Yummy chocolate cake from Tesco's, iced bear from a wonderful lady on Ebay, ribbon from ebay too - Henrietta was thrilled with the end result

Henrietta's bear invites, which took ages to cut out - but well worth it in the end
I have covered up my contact details

All kids rec'd a party box with some goodies inside - I am loving the bakers twine

Henrietta blows out her candles

Just finished off the Thank You notes - which are attached to a Thornton's Chocolate Bear, yum yum

Well, thats it for another year, well maybe not.  Charlie is already planning his Super Mario 6th Birthday Party - which will be happening in May!

Happy 8th Birthday Henrietta

World War 2 Day

Henrietta's class project for this term is World War 2 (how exciting).  Today they visited Ryedale Folk Museum, Hutton Le Hole, North Yorkshire for a World War 2 experience.

All the kids and teachers had to dress up in 1940's dress.  Heres Henrietta this morning dressed in her fair isle tank top, pleated skirt and grey knee socks.

Happy Belated Halloween

Halloween really should last for a full week instead of just the one day.  We still have our pumpkin (or Punkin as Charlie calls it) on the doorstep, but sadly all the other stuff is back in the loft until next year.

Kids really wanted to get dressed up this year, Henrietta as a cat and Charlie as a bat, but as we were away at Mums last week and I was really under the weather, I just didnt have the time or the strength to muster up anything - next year kids, I promise.
