Happy world book day 2018

worldbook - CopyWorld book day is one of my favourites events of the year. I love to see the excitement in my children’s faces as we scour through their favourite books to find one of their many favourite characters. For the past 2 weeks my youngest has changed her mind about her characters so many times i have lost count. First she wanted to go as a baby kangaroo (kangaroo kangaroo where are you) and then she decided she wanted to go as princess Elsa. I encouraged her to choose something different rather than  Frozen and plus she has worn that costume so many times. As little as she is she went away to play and ponder and then she had a light-bulb moment. She suddenly remembered a book she purchased during the book fair week called fairy magic by Cerrie Burnell. She was so excited she came shouting, ‘mummy i will go as blue summer fairy. I was glad she made her mind up as we were only a day away to world book day.

My big girl already decided weeks in advance she would go as Violet Beauregard from Charlie and the chocolate factory by Roald Dahl. It was super easy buying her costume which was purple with a puffball top plus it came with a golden ticket and some bubblegum. She was so happy with her choice and very much into her character. I also found it rather sweet that she took her time to talk to her little sister about her character. She told her little sister that Violet likes to store her bubble gum in her ears for safe keeping . Her baby sister was not impressed and she replied, ‘well if i had lots of bubblegum i would just chew it all up ok’.

After all the preparation and horrid weather i am so happy the day went so well. It was just so lovely seeing my girls with their friends really owning their characters and having so much fun. I really need to become more organised and hopefully next time  i will be more on the ball however it all depends on the children’s choices and as you all know children change their mind all the time.

Christmas…….not so merry for many Christians around the world :(

Whilst many of us enjoyed Christmas this year many around the world did not get a chance to. A car bomb exploded in Baghdad killing around 38 people and wounding many more. The bomb happened just outside a church as worshippers were leaving the service. For some Christians around the world, celebrating christmas makes then stand out like a sore thumb hence making them more of a target. More needs to be done to ensure the freedom of worship.

Brit Nicole dedicates her gorgeous baby :)

Train up a child the way he should go says the book of Proverbs and award winning gospel singer Brit Nicole started that important step by dedicating her 4 months old baby girl Ella. Cutie Ella wore a soft pink vintage styled dress with flower studded hair band…(Funnily enough it looks just like the hair band my princess wore for her dedication on the 3rd November this year..i got it from H&M)

Anyway not deviate from the story, it is so wonderful to see parents dedicating their babies unto the Lord so congratulations Miss Ella God bless you !!

Recently a friend of mine who is a ‘baby’ Christian asked me if she could still dedicate her 3 yr old son as i recently dedicated my princess at 7 months. My friend feels she may have left it too late but i tried to encourage her by letting her know its never too soon Nor too late to dedicate your child to God. Its amazing how the enemy can try  to fill our minds with doubt so i would encourage any mum out there wanting to dedicate their child to go ahead regardless of their age as its the most beautiful thing one can do for their child and yes one day they will thank you for it.
