I get the Christmasy feeling when I get home from the cemetery on Christmas Eve, by 7am Christmas morning it has gone!! This year I have bought them a surprise gift (credit card is in the hospital!!!LOL) which (fingers and toes crossed making typing difficult!!) should keep the fun going at least till bedtime!! Well, I can't wait to play anyway!!!!LOL
This was going to be a quick post, but as usual the fingers have run amok on the keyboard and I am waffling!!! LOL!!!
I haven't had chance to edit all the final cards and bits I have made for Christmas so I will post them next week .I promised not to touch the computer or crafting bits till next Monday!!! I can feel the withdrawal symptoms already!!!LOL But I had to share this photo......
My DH bought my gift a couple of weeks ago and it has been sat calling to me since it arrived over a week ago! So unfair!!! I really could have done with it! Here it is....
...yep sitting on my table there has been a cuttlebug and pack of nesties!!! I am sure there should be a anti-cruelty to crafters society out there somewhere...I will have to google that one...LOL!
Well, all there is left to say now is a promise to visit everyone when I can and wish you all....
Have a wonderful Christmas

There are no photos (thankfully) of mum, sis, and I dressed up but Terry.....
....Scared themselves...lol!!!! Alix refused to put anything on bless him but he did run around with a mask trying to scare us all!!! He loved the trick or treating, he said thank-you every time and only took one sweet when offered. He loved putting them in his little bucket. You may notice there is an extra child in the photo, this is one of Mikael's friends, Rhys. I look after him for my friend when she has to work. His mum joined us later for tea.

...They were given a Pokemon ball training card to collect Pokemon in. These were stickers won during games.
The finished poster....
The next game was Meowth's gold coin hunt! The kids had to find chocolate coins hidden in the room, on some of the coins were character stickers for their training cards.
Followed by the Pikachu Stomp! Hidden inside some balloons were some more character stickers, the kids had to stomp on the balloons to find them, very noisy and quick!!
Yes I did re-arrange the furniture, moved the TV and turned all the glass doors against the walls!!!
I managed to get them to pose for a group photo, shouting smelly feet!!!!
No!!! but they tried very hard!!!! even the babies!!!lol
The Birthday cake! My mum made the cake for me this year, I have made cakes and bought them in the past and this year mum did us proud. Mikael was thrilled!!
Food and a game of sleeping Pokemon...nice quiet game!! and time to go home. Each child went home with a party bag with sweets and cake. They got a certificate to say that they were Pokemon Masters and a punch balloon (or rice balloon) VERY noisy balloons, well I had to share the noise with the parents...lol!!!
When everyone went home it was time to clear up and open the presents...
Mikael did really well with his presents and was really pleased. he got lots of money which he is spending on a Nintendo DS!!! He had a fab time and hasn't stopped telling me that I am the best mum!!! Bless him, I can't believe he is 7. I am very proud of my boy!!

Well I made it over here, I haven't unpacked yet, but that always takes a little time!!!
There's lots to do but so little time!!
It's been good to see lots of friends over here, J-land is like a ghost town, my little alert pop-up hasn't popped-up at all today!! makes me feel kind of lonely!
Just to let you know that I have 2 other blogs here, the first is my crafting one and has been running for a while now you can find the lilac diary HERE
The second is my challenge blog, which is open to digi artists too, if there is enough interest I will set a regular tag style challenge, let me know if you are interested.
you can find Crafts4Eternity HERE
Mikael has passed his level 1 swimming badge!!! Which is a great achievement for him as 2 months ago he wouldn't get in the pool!!!! He also got a "celebration fish" at school for his handwriting. The paper fish goes on a big board for everyone to see! He is doing really well.
Alix is doing well, we are getting more sentences from him and he is communicating his needs much better now, so less frustrated.
Well this was just going to be a quick hello...lol!!!
So to end.........
Welcome to my new blog!!!!!!!
