Back From Holiday and Happy Halloween!!

We've just come back from a lovely ten days in Turkey. We had a fab time although it was a little stressful with Lillie running around like a loon and wanting to jump in the pool like Maddy. So I'm not very brown but I was glad of the break!

Got a craft fair this weekend though so I'm looking forward to getting started on some Christmas stuff. Feeling very Christmassy now the dark nights are here and the weathers getting colder.

My holiday did mean though, I wasn't able to throw our usual Halloween bash! I was gutted when I realised how late we got back! Not wanting to let my girlies down, I did do a little Halloween tea which we ate whilst watching Monsters vs Aliens:Mutant Pumpkins. Then Daddy came home and took two very cute witches trick or treating. Was Lillies very first time but she soon got the knack if knocking on doors!

I included a few little handmade touches to my decorations this year-my handmade "Boo" bunting, some really yummy cupcakes with bats and orange frosting and some ghosty cups! I also made Maddy and Lillie a nice drink of toad slime (which was really water with green food colouring-I couldn't catch any real toads).

Hope you all had a happy halloween!


  1. Happy Halloween!
    Send some cakes my way - YUM!
    Glad you had a good time in Turkey. Little ones on holiday are sooooooo busy. Keep us posted how the craft fairs go. Emma xx

  2. I agree - those cakes look yum and your two witches look very cute! x
