Book week parade

For their last day of school for the term, the kids were asked to dress up as their favourite book character. Good times I hear you say....well, yes, maybe for some! At our house however there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth in regards to costumes! I was fully prepared to send Charlotte as Grumpy Dwarf!

Natalie went as a mermaid out of one of the fairy books Chari and her are forever bringing home. Very gorgeous! She didn't want to wear the bikini top... Little miss Riding Hood. Poor little thing has been very sick this week, and so everything has been a massive drama!
And Sam went as superspidertough guy! His day care mum took him up to the parade, so he even got to join in the fun!
And the three together. Man alive, trying to get three children looking at the camera without one or all of them pulling funny faces is an impossible feat. Believe it or not, this is the best of a very dodgy bunch! For some reason Natalie pulls that dorky face in MOST photos I take of her at the moment.
Mick has been busy in our yard this weekend. He got a couple of loads of gravel and the kids are helping (!?!?!?!) him spread it out around the yard...a couple of gardens here a path there :-) It will look good when he has finished. I am sure he has a plan, he just hasn't shared it yet!

Well, I am off to do some scrapping! Over at Direct 2 U we have been doing ATC swaps, and are now stealing the hot chocolate tins from the pantry to make tins for our collected treasures. If you are interested in participating in an ATC swap come on over to D2U, the more the merrier!
I shall post some pics of my little ex hot chocolate tin tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your Sunday! Love ya!
