Its a miracle!!!!!!!

Today we have been to the farm open day at my work.  I’m not 100% sure what goes on at the farm on my works grounds and bearing in mind where I work its probably best not to spend a long time thinking about that aspect!!   Anyway every year staff are allowed to bring their kids on site for a visit so we did along with Nicola (who I work with) and Sophie (her 4yr old)…..

Normally Caitlin is scared to death of animals and this first picture is one of her being brave and getting close to them!!!  At first she wouldn’t even walk down the path between the stalls….

Noah on the other hand loves animals and is quite happy to stick his hands right into their mouths….

As we walked round Caitlin seemed to be getting braver, not sure if this was because of the influence of Noah and Sophie….

When we got to the part where they could hold the lambs I thought Caitlin would run a mile…. But no she actually held the lamb…..

Then when Noah had a hold, she was obviously enjoying seing the lambs so much she went and stroked Sophie’s lamb……

So there you have it…in one hour she went from not even wanting to walk past their stalls to actually holding it! AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eureka we’re rubbish at painting!!

This week we’ve been busy painting (very badly!!) but managed to get time to go to Eureka…

We’ve been before and it was good but we didn’t get to see everything so we went back. We went with a few others including Abigail and Katie (or as Caitlin calls them AbooKatie) This time if you dressed as a dinosaur or an explorer then you got in for free so Caitlin and Noah are both dressed as explorers, although it just makes Caitlin look like a boy!!!

Caitlin enjoyed scanning her shopping in the minature supermarket and Noah was very pleased to have found a ready meal!!!!!

Then we went to the part all about cars and engines where Caitlin practised changing a wheel!!

Then we went to a section for under 5’s where Noah made a friend….

When I tried to sit Caitlin next to the Cyote she screamed the place down and ran a mile!!

Then we went to the body section where Caitlin compared her teeth to the giant ones!!

We had a great day but were all knackered by the time we were done!! Then it was back to painting…we have discovered you can’t cover silk paint with matt paint!!!!!!!! If you do it seems to dry with loads of very fine cracks in it.  Lets just hope people view that wall in the dark!!!  Our neutralising is soooo slow (we are wishing we hadn’t painted every room in the house really wild colours needing 4 coats to cover up!!) lets just hope the house we like doesn’t get sold….

Sunflowers

Nan sent some parcels for Noah’s birthday and as Royal Mail is sooooo bad we only just got them!  Inside was a sunflower kit, so this morning we planted the seeds and decorated the pot.  Caitlin added the water to the soil (and flooded the kitchen in the process!!) and stuck stickers all over her pot.  Then she added her seeds, now we’ll just have to water them everyday and watch to see if they grow…….

Also in the parcel was a tshirt and some matching tights which she’s also wearing…very nice!!!  Noah also liked his rucksack, pj’s, jigsaw and cars.  So Thank You Nan!!!!!!!!!

Snow!!!

It’s snowing again!!!!!!!!  This morning Richard built a snowman, this time a really big one!!  Caitlin found him a hat which is really good….

And his photo is loads better, the right colour and hopefully enough border for Tesco not to chop off anything important like a head or a snowman….

Urbis

Today we went to Urbis with Caitlin’s friend E.  It seems like ages since we’ve seen her – it is ages, we haven’t seen her since I went back to work!!  Roll on my redundancy so we can play out during the week again!!

The exhibitions were giant stationary items and comic book type characters…  The giant stationary was really good, until we got told off for touching the exhibits….. We didn’t touch much….

 Oh yes..there we are touching the masking tape, oh and the tape again, ooop’s and the highlighter!!  Then the woman said we could lie next to the tape measure so here they are…

Then we went dowstairs to see the comic type exhibition where Noah was amazed by the really big people!!
