Wow what a great week it has been with all the snow we've had (apart from having to drive in it to work earlier in the week!)

On Monday we got the first lot of snow and this was Flynn's first time in the snow! We went out onto the decking before Ethan went to school and both boys had lots of fun.

Flynn in the snow for the first time, he was quick to copy Ethan and try and make a snowball!

Ethan making snowballs and Flynn enjoying himself.

The boys playing together in the snow.

I finished work a little earlier than usual and went and picked the boys up. We then walked to the Weir field and met friends, the boys (and Mum's) had a great time sledging down the little hills! Flynn enjoyed sledging too and sat with Ethan on the sledge.

Ethan and Flynn sledging - fun!

Then today (Thursday) we woke to a lovely covering of snow and it was still snowing. We also found out that Ethan didn't have school as the teachers couldn't in - this was the best news, it meant we could go out and enjoy the snow. We headed out after breakfast, dropping Flynn off with my sister on the way - Flynn loved being pulled on the sledge on the way. We met some friends again at the Weir field and we built snowmen and went sledging down the little hills. We arrived home cold and wet but had a fab time.

November 2008

November has been a month of getting things sorted for Christmas so I can enjoying December instaed of running around doing things at the last minute. So no big events etc this month.
Bonfire night was at the beginning of the month and for the second year running we had it at home. We had some friends round - Ethan's best friend - so that was really nice for Ethan and Flynn. We had some more fireworks the following night as Ethan's friends brother was ill and was upset he'd missed them.
The boys watching the fireworks, Flynn didn't want to miss out and enjoyed watching and pointing at them too.
Having fun with the sparklers.
We went swimming this month and had lots of fun, Etahn and Flynn particularly had a great time. We went on the slides and Ethan went on, on his own and I took Flynn down on my knee - he loved it.
I took this photo just after a little photo shoot of the boys to try and get a good photo of them both for the Christmas cards. I didn't get a good shot but liked this one of them sat on the sofa together.
