Play time cupcakes

This baking time was almost forced upon me, not in an ugly way, but anyway, Glen decided it would be nice for the girls to bake these sometime and so popped them into the shopping trolley on Monday. Of course it was expected that I make them with the girls, and before I sound like a really bad mother, I was actually really happy that he bought it, the baking mom thing really doesn't come naturally, but I must say that when I am into it I do enjoy it - even if it is the easy baking route from a box.

We decided this morning to take a little holiday as we have finished 8 weeks of school and the whole family is down with the flu, and so I thought it better to just take a break and rather have a longer term next today was the first day of our holiday, much to the girl's delight. What better way to celebrate than with party cupcakes, and of course the fun of making them.

In my opionion the cupcakes were toooo sweet, but at least they looked nice, and the girls enjoyed eating them and sharing them out with the YFL'ers and others. Maybe next time we'll make some from scratch!

Flour Power

I have really really been slacking on my blog lately, and again, there is no real excuse, I guess that's just how it goes sometimes. I did manage to take some pics last week Friday night at our Sunday School games evening.

We had a really good turn out at this event, which was a real joy to us, so we had two large groups of kids (and adults) enjoying the simple kiddy games together. We did the usual egg and spoon race, the catch the apple with your teeth while it's floating in a bucket of water and then stick your face in flour game, a three legged race, tug of war, a crazy eating game, a treasure hunt...the works - it was great fun!

It really is great as a church family to just play together! We did have a devotional time, where Jacques M shared the gospel with the kids, and Glen did some easy kiddies songs for the singing time, and all of this happened under the African starry sky - praise the Lord!
