Bunk bed are up

All three kids wanted to share a room and as Iz is a bit older we decided bunk bed were essential. So a major upheaval has happened in our house hold. Blue single bed is now my anti snoring bed, the cot is heading out, Iz is in the toddler bed in the big room, James is on the top bunk and Penny bottom.
So far James and Penny are loving it. However, Iz hasn't taken to the move. The little rebel won't stay in bed she is either raiding Penny or heading downstairs armed with teddies and her drink. If told itnis bedtime she gives us a firm "no.". She doesn't say many word but no is a large part of her vocab. 10 o clock she finally is settling. I seem to remember the other two being the same when they moved on fro  the cot. Hopefully it will settle down soon,

New car

At last after over 2 week I have a new (to me) car. Not too sure of it yet. I need to have a play with it. It seems huge, it has 7 seats so I can seperate the kids or John is they are playing up.

Where is Daddy?

Izzie favourite thing it say is Where's Daddy gone?  And answering there is. Sometime she mixes it up with James or teddy. If you ask her what for dinner it is normally cheese which she gets out of the fridge for you.

Penny is 4. Yay

After nearly a year of wait she has finally made it to 4.

We organised a party for the afternoon. The excitment got a bit too much for her and 10min before the party she conked out.
But soon got into the swing of things once people arrived. Pressie first, followed by making crowns. Then luckly enough the sun was out so a play in the garden. Followed by pass the parcel, hunt the eggs and musical statues.
It was the most relaxed party I have done there were 4 friend from school, Beth and 2 siblings James ages.
We got her a Sylvanian family boat, hula hoop, Jess outfit and flying fairy. She also recieved horse riding lesson, horse dancing barbie, post office and fuzzy felt, aqua beads and colour bag, glimmies, fairy, dogs and play dough and lego. She was very lucky.


Cowgirl Penny

For Pennys 4th birthday Grandma got her a horse riding lesson. She absolutely loved it and wants to go again. She was able to kick and get the horse to trot, had a go at standing up and down and held the reins correctly.

Think we might have started a very expensive hobby.

Allotment fun

Half term, hurrah.
Term for fun and frolics in the sun. A weeks of no arguing, yelling, no facebooking, just family fun.

Yay right it lasted 2 days. 2 DAYS!!

Then the yelling start (me) and the arguing (the kids). But hay ho. We are makinb the most of the sun and enjoying the allotment.

We all (apart from John) enjoy being there. The kids like the access to the water and mud. I enjoy all kf it, even the digging. Especially this time of year when thing are really starting to grow.

James has learnt to ride hus bike without stabilisers and as promised has upgraded he toddler bike to a big boys one which he can ride but not stop.

I've put a deposit on a new to me car. A 7 seater yay.

Easter eggs

Penny won an Easter colouring competition and received an chocolate egg. Yay.
Penny's masterpiece.

However, she can't have chocolate, so forward planning me got a dairy free one and stashed it away until she picked it her prize. The one she won has a butterfly on it, when I tried to swap it with her, her bottom lip started to wobble. "But I love blutterbies." Then she ask if I could break it and take James' milk out and put her milk in. When I explained we can't she started to get sad again. So hopefully I made a solution. It isn't great but it might work. This is my attempt at a butterfly egg.
Fingers crossed

Screwy up face

Izzy does this screwy up face thing. She closes her eyes realy tight and screws up her face, then you have to do it. Which makes her get the giggles. Repeat. She does it while she eats and when she is in your arms having a bottle. She is a snuggly, giggly little thing.

Easter Celebration

James and Penny had their Easter celebration show today. It was the first time I have seen Penny perform as I was working at the Christmas play. They were both great. James had the vital role of the sound effect of a kiss in the sound effect role of Judas. Penny's class did songs and the story of Little Red Riding Hood. They also sang the Spring Chicken song. Great stuff. They seem to have both settled in beautifully. I'm sp proud of them.
