Snippets - Another Weekend

Joining in with Snippets over at Making It Up.

[Reading] with Janet and John: John, John, see the aeroplane come down. DD: "Why don't they say land?" I've also noticed a complete linguistic change in my lifetime: Let us - Let's - Lets. Janet and John only say 'let us' of course.

[Celebrating] Family Day at Kindergarten. The children are blessed under the Talit (prayer shawl) canopy.




[Decorating] a cake bought in the supermarket. Friends over for lunch. After the last birthday cake(s) fiasco which looked great but weren't cooked enough inside (my oven not me), I bought a simple cake in a packet from the supermarket and we decorated with (more) pink icing and sugar flowers/butterflies. Forgot to take pictures but it looked good and it did the job.

[Playing] in the park. Love those swings.




[Hanging] our favourite art on the wall as part of an evolving display. Notice how the whole exhibit comes to together with a recurring theme of purple princesses in their gardens.






[Hanging out] with Playmobil.


A girl can never have too many princesses


[Creating] patterns with Geometri shapes.


Here's one I did earlier


No Mummy, it's not finished!


A lot of concentration is required

    1. I thought the same thing. My podgey baby has turned into a lanky little girl.

  2. Love this. Lots of great shots, we love swings too. And a birthday? We used to have some of those geometric shapes, but I gave them away when I didn't think I would have young children again. Regret that now as I can't find wooden ones like I had here.

    1. Belated birthday - the third celebration. We have a group of friends whom we met through IVF and we get together for birthdays loosely connected to the actual birthday date.

    1. Thanks Jax, I wasn't sure if I'd missed it or you hadn't posted a few times. We had hours of fun with the shapes. I had to stop myself getting them out after she'd gone to bed - lol.

  7. It hit me when I saw these photos that she really isn't a baby anymore. Nice to hear from you Miriam. :)
