Since it is so hot today, I thought I would start with a cheery winter scene to cool me down. This is the winter of 2011. We really didn’t get any snow that year so this was the only opportunity the children had to make a snowman and it was melted by the next day!
A purple party hat is a must for anyone’s fifth birthday!
Wee girlie painting as much on her arm as on the paper.
I think she liked that shirt! Rocking out on the drums on Rockband! This was our favourite family activity for a long time.
Watching Finding Nemo, feeling quite under the weather.
I think we were using Story of the World. For more purple pictures and to see what they were up to check out this link. Oh, the memories. Actually, there’s a whole lot more to the story, so I’m sharing another picture as I see it wasn’t mentioned in the post.
They were actually counting the chestnuts they’d gathered when they thought that they were going to be in dire straights for the winter. Thank goodness that mammoth came along! They had a pretty good set up, though, didn’t they? This is back in the day when we were able to have themes to our days (AKA before Ruadhan…….maybe one day soon…..he is nearing the age Morgaine is in this picture).
Flowers, because there must always be flowers!
