The boys had a Hallowe’en party with 6 of their friends (each) with party games, trick or treating and lots of fun.
As can be seen the conservatory was the main party area, but the kids ended up simply running around the house with lots of screaming and laughter 🙂
April and Helen (two of the mums from Year 1) did LOADS to help Vicky get the party setup and rolling including the following (from Helen) tub of gunge for the kids to dip into for prizes 🙂
The kids each took a turn in sticking a paw in and rummaging for gold 🙂 But when one of the parents offered a crisp £10 note for anyone who would put their face in – clearly Simon was straight in…
Finally, we popped the rest of the slime bucket on the front doorstep for the teenage trick or treaters that came round after 8pm – strangely enough they were less than keen to go in search of their treat 🙂 Perhaps this will be an annual plan to keep the pesky older ones from taking all the goodies leaving the youngsters with nada… 😀
As he got off the train on Thursday evening and asked the taxi driver to take him home to Ossett, daddy quickly realised that his voice had been left on the train….
As the weekend has progressed, the voice has not come back yet, although a painful sore throat has become more and more obvious 🙁 it gets significantly worse overnight as swallowing becomes a challenge that he does not wish to participate in and it seemingly take a few hours once awake to become less painful 🙁
Hoping to be OK again tomorrow morning as daddy is not looking forward to heading down to London with this pain 🙁
The boys finished school for the two week half term break on Friday evening and so far, thankfully, never of them have demonstrated that they have any symptoms of the throat / voice issues 🙂
A very busy party weekend with three parties – two on Saturday and one today. On top of this Mummy had a Saturday afternoon and evening out in Leeds with the girls AND had 40 cupcakes to make for Sunday’s party.
The boys have actually NOT had time for the XBOX at all this weekend 🙂
We have at least one party next weekend as well 🙂
Hopefully we can get some family time in the bag next weekend.
