A week of the dreaded lurgy

Well the lurgy has been doing the rounds here for a couple of weeks, so mostly it's been time wrapped up under duvets doing bits and bobs at home.

We found a big pack of paper plates so we made some monster jaws...



...*lots* of funny mouths on sticks...



...and Squidge made some ears too.


Sprout had been asking how things balance, so among other things I picked up this balancing bird, that balances equally well on fingers... 


...as it does on noses :)


They both had a ride round on the chalk track their Grandpa drew out in their currently-empty kitchen...


Pumpkin faces were drawn out and carved for Hallowe'en...


...Morphsuits were donned...


...and Hallowe'en parties were attended by all!


Moppet and I had a little shopping trip without the boys to pick up some Christmas things, and she devoured this croissant in Starbucks...


And I completely failed to organise this pile of Lego. It's still there. I will do it. One day.



Squidge has been finding lots of things online that he enjoys, like making snowflakesdecorating plates (he did this one for hours and made some lovely designs!), puzzle games like Moonster SafeNinja-Pi-Ro and all the Monkey Go Happys, and Lego Marvel Superheroes, which in turn has led him to rewatch the Green Lantern film a few times. He learned to type his name this week too which was very exciting! He's also really brilliantly helped me sort out all the money and forms and boxes for the Link Romania family shoeboxes we've collected from people - we have over 100 this year so extremely grateful to everyone!
Sprout on the other hand has been playing The Dropper map for Minecraft, building Terraria maps with the Buildaria mod, and designing his own Minecraft skins It's also been interesting me a lot the different things that do and don't scare him as he's happily started playing Left 4 Dead 2! He also held the dog's lead on her walk for the first time this week.
In other firsts, Moppet pulled herself to standing for the first time ever!

We're all on the mend now so have a busier couple of weeks on the horizon :)
