Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who welcomed a bouncing baby boy on Monday morning. Like most people, i was glued to my news apps for any updates on the royal baby and so it was lovely to hear of the great news. Katherine was admitted to St Mary hospital on Monday morning and by 11 am she welcomed her baby and by the evening she left through that famous door. The new mum looked absolutely lovely as if she had just returned from a relaxing holiday. Katherine was wearing a beautiful red dress with a white collar and even managed to wear a pair high heeled shoes. I accept that the duchess has a lot of help as it comes with her role and status but lets not forget, she is still human. Most new mothers leave the hospital with cosy clothes and comfortable shoes away from the public eye but Katherine has to keep perfoming her duties regardless so well done super Kate!
The new baby is such a cutie pie just like his brother Prince George and sister Princess Charlotte. The baby has not yet been given a name but i am sure whatever name they give him will be befitting. It would have been nice to name him George as he was born on St Georges day but erm..that is already taken by his big brother oh dear.
Sorry i could not post on the day but its been a very busy Easter celebration for us here, I was actually meant to post on the 1st of April but by the time i finished doing everything i was beyond knackered.The whole celebration has been wonderful especially now that my little one have reached an age where they are so inquisitive. My 4 year old keeps telling me that Jesus went to the cross and went up to the sky and asking lots of hows and whys. I love their little funny questions as it allows room for me to explain things in a way that is age appropriate. Days before good Friday we made 2 gorgeous Easter bonnets as the girls school required all children to wear one for their Easter celebrations. I had set my sights on getting non decorated simple bonnets from the poundshop or poundworld but unfortunately they had run out. I was amazed that all the shops had run out of bonnets and some well known shops did not bother to stock any. I did manage to buy some bonnet decorations and some simple straw summer hats which we turned into bonnets. The girls and i had so much fun decorating the bonnets and even daddy helped stitch some baby chicks for us. The girls looked so sweet wearing their bonnets for school before half term and also for church on Easter Sunday.
Asides from Easter bonnets we also had chocolate eggs overload. I really wanted to treat my little ones for doing so well at school so i just went overboard with the chocolates. I organised a cheeky Easter egg hunt in the house as the weather wasn’t too great. Chocolate eggs were hidden in the dolls house, study table, rocking moose and other strange and funny parts of the house. They took their egg hunt seriously and at some point became extra competitive as their marched around the house with their pink and yellow baskets. They had sch a ball and as for me, i found a Cadburys creme egg days later in the bedroom. I did not call the girls to come and see i simply sat down quietly and enjoyed a well deserved treat hmmm it was yum….such a great find.
On Easter Saturday we made some arts and crafts which the girls enjoyed as it involved lots of cutting, sticking, gluing and of course glitter. I planned to make my own hot cross buns but i did not get the time and so i cleared out my nearest supermarket :). Easter Sunday was such a treat as the girls were all pretty in pink with their bonnets. The service was beautiful as our wonderful pastor taught us on the power of Jesus Christ Resurrection. I just soaked in the message like a thirsty tree. The word of God is indeed life and i am so glad i have the privilege to know the true meaning of the season. My children love the bunny,chocolates,baby chicks and so on but they understand that its just a little bit of fun. What makes me happy is that they know about Jesus and how much He loves us.
