Was lovely, from start to finish. And i just want to say it, for the day in the future when the girls read this, that i’m really proud of them. They spent the day being delighted with everything, delightfdul to each other, pacing themselves, not demanding more andm ore and more and, especially in Fran’s case, being extremely grown up about the inbalances of parcel numbers. I was very proud of Fran for this because she had less to open due to having asked for considerably more expensive things, like the Geomags. She carried herself like a real grown up through that.
Of course, that didn’t stop her from arriving in my6 room at 2am asking if it was time to get up! But we managed to hold off till about 8.30 in the end and opened pressies gradually through the day. Because we hadn’t gone mad on “stuff” they really played with and enjoyed everything. Anyone who loves Geomags, but doesn’t yet have “panels”, you need them!
Cinders… you SHALL go to the ball!
Magical, magical… best £5 ever spent!
I’ve got a gorgeous memory of Maddy in black catsuit, black and red cape and cowboy hat with her wand but sadly the photo is impossibly blurry. MUST get camera fixed.
Amelie method acting.
Cinderella, before you Do go to the ball, could you just do the sprouts?
Sisters playing, a re-establishment of relations i think.
This was a lovely game. Amelie got Dora lego and played with it all day almost to the exclusion of opening anything else. However she and Maddy spent ages on a game with Dora and Erica the Pauper Barbies, or “Barbie Prawprer” as Amelie calls her. Ams got her first Barbie (sigh) a pink Fairytopia one… its going to be pink here for years isn’t it?!?!?!
More sisters… aaaaaah.
Josie is snuffly and coldy, poor girl. In fact, it sounds like a doctors surgery around here!
So, the costumes, the Geomags, the lego, the magic set. All a big success. And currently they are making necklaces from Letterland stocking fillers and doing fuzzy felt – scaling down has been a big success. Not honestly, that we spent much less than other years, but we chose more carefully. They went to sleep listening to Alice last night so those have been a big hit.
I can’t decide if i’m amused or horrified by the pastel coloured Geomags – a shameless marketing ploy to produce a “girlified” version of something construction. However, i succumbed to the marketing ploy regardless. They are pretty….
