Happy birthday Keren!

The birthday girl finally gets her pressie

Granny has been clearing out boxes and cupboards, and Grace got a dress which Keren wore when she was a little girl

Marble painting

Slick up a marble with some paint and roll it around over a piece of paper – lots of messy fun for a four year old. I’m pretty sure the first thing Eli would do if he got hold of it would be to put it in his mouth….hold onto that marble sis!

While big sis paints, flour and water for some squishy, mushy, messy fun.

Boys like to bash

Eli has discovered that it is fun to bash things on the table…

He also took a cruise down the entire passage using his “walker”

A few snippets and the first sign

The “Kiss me” bop

The blanket drag

The boat drag (wait for the punch)

Oh, and Eli signed “more” clearly for the first time today.

Knights & Princesses

Caleb turned 6 and had a knights and princesses themed party. Boy parties are just….well….entirely different to girl parties. When we arrived (late due to Eli’s sleep), the children were defending the treasure from being stolen by John the Terrified…
