Party Tea

This week is the last week of the summer holidays and so we thought we'd have a party tea to say goodbye to the holidays and get our heads round the fact that on Thursday we are back to school again. Another year over, they seem to be flying past and next September Sam goes to senior school. It's almost incomprehensible that he could be next to go up to seniors...
So, here's some pictures from our day...

This is the table layed with our party tea before it was demolished by four ravenous children, we had crisps and fairy cakes, sausages on sticks and ham sandwiches, egg sandwiches and orange juice. It was very lovely and it has all gone now, not even a doggy bag to take to bed for a midnight feast...


No one looks very happy here but I think it's because I stopped them from eating to take this picture. Yes nice sausage Charlotte....

Charlotte made this lovely clown face for our "pin the nose on the clown"
game. We tried to come up with a different version of the pin the tail on the donkey and as you can imagine they came out with all sorts of "pin the ??? on the..????" most of them you couldn't repeat here...

Still, Sam enjoyed his crisps...



And then there were the games, here they are playing pass the parcel, as most mums would testify, it must be rigged to make it fair, so all you have to do is remember who's prize it should be inside, how many layers of paper there are and that everyone gets to unwrap at least one layer....Easy....oh yes and make it land on the right person...

We also played musical chairs where Charlotte and Jim made a jump for the same chair and she caught her finger between the chairs, and then they played musical statues where in the end Charlotte and Jim both pretended to be Chuck Norris and karate chop each other, that was fun when the music stopped!!!

We also played charades but by using actions and not TV or films and so on, so we did "shovelling snow" "having a bath" "chasing a chicken" (Jim was good at that one!) Charlotte had "sweeping up feathers" and the guesses that were shouted were "your a fish" "a flying fish" "A fish with a broom" Where they got fish from I don't know.

I can safely say that never has so much noise, been made for so long, by so few....

And finally Katie got her hair cut...



I love her hair when it is long and thick, but having her hair in a little bob is so sweet and I love that little old neck..
