Happenings and moments from the last couple of weeks...
Tilly in her Easter Dress. This girl just loves anything pick and sparkly!
Getting the highest scores "so far" for presentation, taste and difficulty with this yummy carrot cake at Tani's work's first ever office "bake off."
Finding, Identifying and drawing lots of Spring animals. birds, bugs and flowers on our afternoon walkabouts.
I printed off some identifier sheets for the girls from the woodland trust nature detectives. There is a prize for the first one who ticks off all their boxes :)
A new home for "Arrietty" made by Boo and Matilda :)
Colouring in Matilda's birthday mandalas.
Looking through old photo albums and watching old home movies on rainy afternoons.
Play dolls house. Matilda loves to rearrange the furniture in her dolls house. Her dolls are particularly house proud :)
I love the endless stories the girls come up with for their little animals and dollies.
Sometimes they will follow the story line of a favourite film or book, other times the stories will be far more mundane and include everyday details an family anecdotes, often their stories will escape completely into the realms of fantasy and fairytale.
An early morning sunlit capture of my fairy princess Tilly.
And this sweet babe. Of course I couldn't not include at least one picture of her...
