Sunday morning pancakes and Autumn crafting

Sunday morning pancakes have become a bit of a tradition. Lee does his long Sunday morning runs with the club and we have a lazy morning in our pjs. The kids like to make the pancakes themselves now and I just cook them. I'm not quite ready to trust Amy with the hot stove just yet!

After pancakes I set up some craft stuff for them. Tom wanted to do the hedgehog with the leaves, but Amy said it looked silly to her, so she just drew on the hedgehog spikes and coloured them in.

Autumn/Halloween shelf all done :) Leaf rubbings, leaf hedgehogs, toilet roll monsters and pumpkins and autumnal trees :)

'ten minute pudding'

Amy asked for pudding after she'd finished her dinner this evening. I told her we had jelly in the fridge but she asked so nicely if we could make 'grannies special pudding'. They both pulled up a stool and put the ingredients together and took turns mixing it up. 

What a messy kitchen! A drying up rack full of dishes and a recycling bucket full and overflowing! But they look like happy children!

Woodburn bike ride

A sunny Autumn Sunday afternoon bike ride and walk in the woods :)
It was the first time we've taken Amy out on her bike since she learned to ride without stabilizers and she did brilliantly, even over the uneven surfaces.

Colour Run at the Valley

Louise, Aaron, Amy and I did the 3k colour run at the Valley park. It was fun and I think we enjoyed it as much as the children :)
It was really cold and rainy, but when we started to run the sun came out for a while. And by the time we were finished, the wind picked up and it started to rain again, so I didn't get the photos I was hoping for!

This morning Amy wanted to listen to George Ezra, Shotgun on my phone. The two of them sang along and it was probably the cutest thing ever.
