Halloween 2009

We’ve had a lovely Halloween 🙂

We’ve spent the day doing Halloween activities. We did pumpkin carving and made spookily shaped cookies. We also made marshmallow ghosts, chocolate covered apples and green jelly with spiders.

Aiden’s gone to his cubs Halloween party tonight and the girls have been in charge of handing out the cookies to the trick or treaters.
Ant joined in with the dressing up and scared some of the younger trick or treaters! He did look quite scary and I think he may have made a few of the parents jump as well!!

Halloween Pumpkins 2009

 

The girls look forward to it for most of the year and have been excited all day! Ella, especially, loves the dressing up costumes. She wears them all year round!

 

New blog

So, here it is, my new blog 🙂

I’ve never been very good at keeping a diary so I’m not sure how good I’ll be at remembering to write this blog!
I thought it would be nice for my children to read when they’re older, though, so I’m going to give it my best shot.

Here’s a bit of background info…..My name’s Michelle, but everyone calls me Shell. I’m married to Anthony and we’ve been married just over 4 years. We met on the internet in an MSN group.
I have Aiden (9) from a previous relationship and together we have KayCee (4) and Ella (2).

Anthony has 6 children from his first marriage…. Jonathan, Jourdain, Kellyann, Jason, Jervais and Jerome. He also has 2 grandchildren; Jason has 2 sons, Jamie and Damien. We’re all getting ready for Halloween here. Kellyann bought KayCee and Ella a lovely witch costume each. They tried them on and didn’t want to take them off 🙂
They look very pretty in them and I’ll add photos here after Halloween.

Aiden hasn’t got his costume yet. We’ll get him one next week. He’s going to his cub’s Halloween party and is really looking forward to it.

Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I was a child. We went trick or treating but didn’t really dress up and people gave us money rather than chocolate and sweets!
I enjoy Halloween with the kids. We make Halloween themed food and have a little Halloween tea party just for us.
Anthony does face painting and is excellent at it.
A couple of years ago, he painted his own face and some of the children that came to our door actually cried when he opened it.
We’ll try not to let that happen again!

First ever blog post
