Read With Me #51

Hello. Now I know you're all probably busy wrapping presents and doing some last minute Christmas shopping but I don't feel my week is complete without a Read With Me post.

read with me
I will keep this weeks post short but sweet.

I'm not sure if there will be a Read With Me post up next week so I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who joined in this year.

It has been wonderful reading so many lovely reviews and recommendations.

Seeing activities which extend stories and ideas on how to get children excited about reading.

Every single comment, share and link up has been very much appreciated.

Here's hoping you'll continue to link up in the new year.

Ten On The Sled Book Review

I have a lot of traditions that I follow at Christmas, one of them being that I like to purchase the girls atleast one new Christmas themed book.

This year I was lucky enough to be sent one to review. Ten On The Sled by Kim Norman is a beautifully festive book, perfect for children and families.

There were 10 on the sledand the caribou said, 
"Slip over! Slide over!"
 … and a grand, snowy adventure was launched. 
Climb aboard - there's always room for 1 more.

It is a board book with 22 pages, filled with rhymes, counting and most importantly, fun.The story counts down as different animals falls out of the sled that they are riding in.

Project 365 Days 348 - 354

So we've been in our  new home for a week now, it's been chaotic getting everything unpacked and in place but I've never been so glad to sit on my own sofa and sleep in my own bed. Oh and of course put up my Christmas tree. I was without internet and was trying to struggle with 3G (first world problems) but we finally got WiFi back today.

It was the girls last week of school and we've had church services, parties and lots of present and card giving, I think they are getting really excited for Santa now. Mix in a sickness bug and throat infection, lets say it has been a tad hectic!!

Onto the photos….

Day 348

Today included snotty toddlers, sick bugs oh and eating lunch in the shed?

More Elf Antics

Another week closer to Christmas, less than a week to go, are you ready?? Whilst we get used to our new house, Buddy has been making himself at home…

Buddy wanted to leave a message for the girls, he just happened to make a mess of the bathroom whilst doing it.

Making Your Own Christmas Tree

I don't know about you but I like to have more than one Christmas tree in my house. The husband however isn't so keen, so I've been making smaller cardboard versions to pop around the house instead. They are so simple to make and of course you can paint them whatever colour you like and decorate them as you please.

You will need :

2 Pieces Of Cardboard (the bigger the cardboard, the bigger the tree)
Scissors
Paint
Christmas Decorations

1. On the first piece of cardboard draw a Christmas tree with four branches on either side, making sure to leave the end of each branch pointing upwards so that the decorations won't fall off when hung on them.

2. Cut the first tree out.

Warm Chicken Salad Recipe

I love food and it is true that some organic food manages to taste better than normal foods. Did you know that Aldi actually stock a few organic and special foods? I actually didn't but I was recently sent vouchers so that I could try out their range and come up with a yummy dish in the process. Below is my recipe for a warm chicken salad.
