I promised KayCee and Ella we’d make some of KayCee’s bead pals that she got for Christmas. Unfortunately, all the decorating, being ill then having to get the house back in order after the upheaval of decorating left me little time.
Tonight when I fetched the box, Ella saw it and started jumping up and down while asking, ‘is all the cleaning done…are you all better….can we make some now?!’.
It’s lovely to see her so excited 🙂
KayCee really enjoyed making her ladybird keyring and she picked it up very easily. I thought it might be too difficult for them when I started reading the instructions but my intelligent daughter made the observation that once you’d done a couple of rows of beads, it gets much easier! She can now follow the pattern by herself 🙂
After dinner we started the bedtime routine and decided that for a change we’d play Moshi Monsters Top Trumps instead of having a story.
Out of all the expensive presents they had for Christmas, their favourite at the moment is Top Trumps!
KayCee had Smurfs Top Trumps and Aiden had Bin Weavils Top Trumps.
The girls are always wanting to play! I have to play with Ella because she can’t read properly yet. They never seem to get bored and were very disappointed that after a game of Moshi and Smurf Top Trumps, it was bedtime.
It’s been a really lovely evening. Everyone was in a good mood because Daddy comes home tomorrow; we’ve all missed him so much and really can’t wait to see him 😀
