What have the Elves been getting up to?

So it's the 11th of December and Rhul and Elfis have been here for just over a week! I thought it was about time to show you what they have been getting up to!


1st December
Since mummy and James had been away for the night with Beavers, The elves decided to hide in James bedroom so when he got home and went upstairs to get changed he found them! Also it meant Freddie would not find them till mummy and James got home!

2nd December
Naughty Elfis decided he was going to lock Rhul in the crate for James Crate Creature!
Poor Rhul was not looking too impressed as he tried to escape through the hole the creature puts its tongue out of!

3rd December
The naughty elves decided they were going to take a toilet roll for a trip down the stairs! Poor Rhul though he got pushed down the stairs in the middle of the tube by naughty Elfis

4th December
Uh oh the elves decided to try and swing from the light fitting! This pair are getting naughtier by the day! I swear it!

5th December
The elves decided to try and make James some breakfast!

6th December
Uh oh they tried to escape!

7th December
The elves went to sit in the fridge as they were missing the cold!

8th December
They tried to use the exercise bike!

9th December
They wanted to watch some TV!

10th December
Rhul and Elfis had some fun with James lego!

Living Arrows 2019 49/52

Welcome to Living Arrows post 2019! If you haven't heard of the linky before, This was set up by Donna at What the Redhead Said and the name comes from the poem by Kahlil Gibran "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth" Each week I post one photo of James and one photo of Freddie and share what they have been up to that week!

This week started pretty quiet as daddy was back to work after being on holiday for a week. Then it went crazy as when we got home from picking up James, poor Freddie was sick all over our door mat so it was two days off school for him! He was perfectly fine after he was sick so we think it might have been allergy related rather than sickness bug as if he is sick from his allergies he normally is fine within five minutes!

James had a smart scoot at school on the Tuesday so he had to take his scooter and helmet in with him! He then decided he wanted to scoot to school the next day as well! James also went carol singing at our local Asda with with our Beaver colony! He had such a good time! I cannot believe he has been at the Beavers for one year and one term almost! He has definitely gained a lot of confidence since he started! And come September he will be in Cubs as he will be eight!!

Freddie finally went back into nursery on Thursday, just in time for the school fair on the Friday afternoon! Mummy had to rearrange most of her week due to Freddie being off nursery for two days! Not a lot got done work wise!

Freddie has had a great week at nursery and they he got to spend the weekend with daddy while we were away! We also started the week with Freddie turning 4! He had such a great day even thought he was at nursery for three hours!

Freddie you are Four!

Freddie Bear today you are four years old! And you are actually in nursery for three hours as well! I hope you are having a great day with all your little friends!

Its so crazy that you are four years old already! You started the primary school nursery at the start of September and you have settled in so well. We already have your school reception place application in for next year and we know you will love the school as much as your big brother does!

You get so excited to go into nursery every day and you are already leaving me at the classroom door to go in to play with all your new friends. That is something James never did at all when he was in nursery! Your two best friends at Nursery are actually the little brothers of two of James classmates. You three are as thick as thieves and get so excited when you see each other on a morning! You do not like coming home from nursery and someday's you get quiet upset about coming home. I wonder if you will still think the same next year when you are in reception!!

This last year has gone so fast, you are now fully potty trained in the day time and are dry quite often overnight as well! Once you were reaction clear with your allergies potty training was easy. You will use both the toilet and the potty and when we are out you will confidently stand up to wee at a big toilet!

We will be starting to think about reintroducing milk into your diet soon and mummy is pretty on edge about it, but this time its going to hopefully be more closely monitored. Taking wheat out of your diet at the beginning of this year really helped your stomach. 

You are so stubborn and will always answer us back and argue with James! If you do not get your own way boy do you let us know. You absolutely adore your big brother and you get so excited when the alarm goes off on mummy's phone when its time to go and collect him although there have been a few times when you have wanted to leave him at school!

Happy Birthday our gorgeous little man, we love you so much
Love
Mummy, Daddy and James

James started the week by going on a school trip to Beamish with his year three class and also the year five class from his school. They had a brilliant day! Later in the week they had a exhibition of photographs from their recent school residential trip and to end the week they had a Pyjama day to raise money for Children in Need. James also had aa trip to the Discovery Museum with Beavers to take part in a badge day. He tried lots of fun things that can be used towards badges! 

Poor Freddie started the week with a trip to the doctors after he developed a high temperature and a nasty cough. Mummy and James had come home from the Remembrance Day parade to find him curled up on the sofa feeling sorry for himself. Luckily he was well enough to be back at school come Wednesday!

Siblings November


Welcome to the November edition of The Siblings Project!
I know I say it every month but really its November and the year is almost over! We have one more Siblings post of 2019!

This month's photographs were taken over half term when Mummy and the boys were visiting Nana and Gaga. Mummy, Nana and the boys went across to Amble and took the boys for a walk. On our way back to the car the boys found some huge puddles!

When we got back to the car we actually had to strip them out of their trousers and boots and in Freddie's case his socks as well!
