We have been busy, but a secret, can't show you because they are Christmas presents type of busy! We have been doing some work too, Ebi-kun is reading everything in can lay his hands on and yesterday started making up a story with these magnets. That was, until he ran out of words to make proper sentences with!
We have also been working on our continent swap goodies, I have tried to include Ebi-kun as much as possible in the process, he took some of the photos we are using and helped make the 'festival' poster. It was a bit of a production line kind of job since we have 6 sets to make. He has also helped with picking a recipe and picking which photos to use for other parts of the swap.
I didn't have time to write this morning since we left early for a coffee/lunch/shopping date. I don't know why I thought it would be a nice relaxing day out with 3 kids in tow, I am sure Mel was as shattered as I was by the time she got home. I had made a treasure hunt card for the two older kids to do together, they had a list of things to 'spot' whilst we were shopping, didn't work so well with the two of them, they spent most of the time racing around the shop. Once Ebi-kun was on his own and had no one to chase, he got right into it, so much so, that he refused to leave the mall until we had found everything on the list!
Right, bath time for a certain little one, who is going through a spate of nose bleeds at the moment, so he is off to bed early, I don't think we have made it through the night for about a week and i maybe following him, after I have got through this massive pile of cutting out first....
