    Ru adored opening up all these cute babies. 
    Every baby brought a big smile to his face, he's very into babies at the moment and was over the moon when the delivery of BABY Secrets arrived!
    After we had unboxed all of them I told them if we placed them in their baths we would find out wether they were a boy or girl.

    Colour changing toys are a massive thing in this house and any chance Ru has to play with water he's all over it.

    I filled up the baths and let him dip the babies in.
    It was great fun seeing what colour their diapers went.


    He has played with them non stop since opening them up, its very sweet to hear him making them talk to each other and him bathing them nicely and surprisingly not making too much of a mess!
    They haven't received any names yet, but when Ru has finally decided I have their birth certificates ready to fill in.


    1. BABY Secrets is available from The Entertainer, Smyths, Argos and Toymaster.

.... Tidying Up With Dusty ....

Real Workin’ Buddies Mr. Dusty is a fun way for kids to learn to clean up their toys! 
Dusty can eat it up, sweep it up, and dump it out! 
Dusty has a motorised mouth to eat up bigger toys, plus lights and sounds too! 
Dusty the Super Duper Garbage Truck has a fun personality with over 50 phrases and works on both carpet and hardwood floors!


Features

  • 3 ways to play! Sweep It Up! Eat It Up! Dump It Out!
  • More than 50 phrases
  • Works on carpet and hardwood floors!
  • Fun sound effects!
  • Makes cleaning fun
  • Motorised mouth!
  • Working Light!
  • Batteries Required: 4 x AA (Included)


When I heard about a toy that tidied up I was more than excited about trying it out.
The boys love playing but are a little resistant when I suggest tidying up after themselves, so I was rather keen to seen if Dusty would be my secret weapon to combating this!


The boys were all very impressed with Dusty and were keen to play with him, when I threw down a pile of Lego they looked at me like I was going crazy.
When I told them to drive over the Lego bricks they really thought I had lost it.
After staring at me for a while and trying to decide if I needed to be taken away by the men in the white coats they decided to do as I said and drove Dusty with cheeky smiles over all the bricks...

Their faces were priceless,
They couldn't believe he actually ate it all up!

All the boys liked Dusty but Rupert was the one who really took to him and claimed him as his own.

Rupert can spend ages making a mess and then cleaning it back up again.
He loves munching up the bricks and then dumping them out again and he finds it hilarious when Dusty burps.








































Dusty would be a super present to find under the Christmas Tree!
Available from Smyths Toy Store 
RRP £34.99

... Hunstanton Lighthouse ...

On Sunday we decided to pop into Hunstanton for a family Costa Coffee trip, something that doesn't happen often as usually its only me and Jon who going into Costa but seeing as we had nothing planned it sounded like a good way to spend the morning.


The boys were brilliant and they all enjoyed a chocolate baby chino and were very nicely given a flake and a marshmallow!
Which I think made their day.
Jon and I enjoyed our normal coffees and it was nice to be out spending some time with the boys away from the house.


As it was such a beautiful day we decided we would go and see the lighthouse.
We've only ever driven past it before so it was nice to get out and stretch out legs and let the boys run riot which I got some snaps!


The boys all played chase and whilst running after Ru we met a lovely couple with some gorgeous dogs that we all made friends with.


After a while the boys all started to complain their hands were cold so we headed back to the van and drove home to warm up and watch Cars 3.


It was actually one of the best Sunday's we've had in a long while and it didn't cost more than £10.
The boys all had fun, and it was nice to just get out and about rather than spending another Sunday moaning about being bored and not having anything fun to do.

Both Jon and I decided we needed to make a thing of Sundays and just getting out in the morning to somewhere local like our beach or to Hunstanton is something we really need to start doing as we all benefit from it and then Sunday afternoons are really easy going!

... 3D Mini Scenes with eZee Beads ...

My 3rd instalment for the John Adams Craft Club and this time its for 3D Mini Scenes with eZee Beads.

The eZee Beads 3D Mini Scenes set lets you create charming 3D scenes using just beads and water!


Whats inside the box;
Over 1200 beads,
Bead storage,
Bead tray,
Plastic pegs,
Water sprayer,
4 Design cards.
Designs include owl, duck & ducklings, frog on a lily pad, snail & cute rabbit.

Makes 5 free standing mini scenes
Recommended age 5+



I decided to sit down with Ru after nursery whilst all the other boys were still at school and design our first ever 3d mini scene.
I let Ru pick which design we would do and he chose the cute little bunny.
The thought of making a pink bunny made him very happy and he sat there clapping whilst I sorted out all the beads into the bead storage pot.




Once the beads were all in a separate section we started on our design, Ru would get the right coloured bead and hand it to me.

Occasionally he did place the bead but he seemed to enjoy picking out the beads and watching me do the hard part.
We started with the green base and worked up, making sure all the beads were down before we sprayed them with water.

Once Ru had made sure every bead was covered in water we made our flower stalk using the bead pegs provided.

After spraying the beads with water it is recommended you leave them to dry for at least 30 minutes.
We left ours for around an hour and by that time it was really easy to peel the design away from the bead board.


Once the design was dry and peeled off the board Ru watched me turn it from a flat design into a 3D mini scene and he was more than impressed.
He was beaming from ear to ear and couldn't wait to hold his little pink bunny.

Both Ru and I were very pleased with the outcome and we can't wait to make more!

RRP £14.99.

...Wedding Photos...


We just received our professional photos!
Over 700 of them, I'm not sharing them all but he a just a handful of my favourites.
Jon and I both hate our photograph being taken so we were extra judgemental over all the ones of ourselves but the more I look at them, the more I start to like them.


Matthew from Mdknightphotography really was great and managed to capture everyone having a great time.

The day was amazing and it couldn't have gone any better. 
My mum did a fab job at being my wedding planner and without her it wouldn't have been what it was.

It wasn't a big do it was very small and low key, but that is just how Jon and I wanted it to be.
I'm not going to say too much as I could ramble on for years. 
I'll probably write a proper post when I find the right words on how to describe it.
