Merry Christmas

Monday, 24 December 2012

Just a quick post to all of you, my lovely followers.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This year has a dark cloud for us as my Nana is very poorly, it really makes you think about whats important.

So enjoy opening your gifts but remember its all about Family and making memories together.

Much love from us all xx

Who pressed fast forward?

I honestly don't know where the last year has gone.

This time last year we had a tiny little 8 week old baby.



This is a picture I just took of our funny, cheeky, rough, strong willed, hyperactive, loud, Diva Daughter.



And you know what, I would not change one tiny thing.
 
There was a time when we wondered if we would ever have a child. Now we know that you were meant to be ours x

Silver Cross dolls pram review

Liv is obsessed with trying to push her stroller at the minute so we decided to buy her a Dolls pram.
 
This pram comes with its own changing bag, a retractable hood, a basket underneath an adjustable handle and also folds for storage.
 
It is recommended for age 3- 7 but fits her just right on the middle handle setting.


 
 
She loves pushing it up and down but takes the basket off all the time.



 
This is handle at its lowest point.
 
 
This is the handle at its highest point.
 


And collapsed, the basket was removed before collapsing, it is under the pram. The wheels also clip off if you need them to.
 
I would definitely recommend this to family and friends, it would make a lovely Christmas gift.

The worlds saddest Christmas tree part 3

Ok, the baubles have been on 3 days


So far she has been very gentle and touched one now and again with one finger. She has only brought me one bauble so I am quite happy :)
 
I must remember to take an "after" picture to see how it ends up!

Salt Dough hand & footprint decorations

Sunday, 2 December 2012

We decided to have a go at salt dough for our first craft project. I am not very crafty at all and was a bit nervous but it was very easy!
 
 
We just popped a cup of flour and half a cup of salt in a bowl, gradually mixed in half a cup of water and kneaded it for about 5 minutes into a ball.
 
 
(If the dough is a little too sticky add a bit more flour and if it is too dry a little water.)
 
 
I rolled the dough to about 3/4 of a cm thick, cut a rough circle out of the dough, pressed Livs hand in, trimmed the unused dough, made a hole for the string using a straw then left to dry for a couple of days on some greaseproof paper.
 
 
When they were dry I sprayed them with some silver spray paint, fed through some fishing wire, added a few beads I had lying around and hey presto!
 
Easy peasy ;)


 
I love the detail it has, all of the little creases and even part of her prints.
