Let's catch up :)

I feel like I haven't posted for ages! But I don't think it has actually been that long! So just thought I would show you my recent pictures and videos of the kids, so you can see what they have been up to :) 

Jake and his Grandad in the sunshine

Lexi loves a car selfie!

Bath time is the best time!

Lexi loves to feed Jake now!

Jake is becoming so much stronger, holding himself up in his walker really well!

Jakes first taste of a strawberry, he loved it, and the Nuby net made sure it was safe :)

We have been practicing sitting up!

We took a trip to London, I had to get my passport urgently, but I thought what a great opportunity to take the kids to see London! we sat and had lunch, and saw Buckingham palace, which Lexi Loved!!

I think Lexis favorite part was being on the underground! She was so happy and excited to be on there!

It was a long day and Lexi did get fussy, as to be expected, I think I am going to take them to London around Christmas time to see the lights, and stay in a hotel so that we don't have to battle the tube at peak times, that was not fun!

Jake was so good the whole day and enjoyed having the freedom of his buggy, instead of being in his car seat! He was going crazy kicking his legs!

aaaaaaand a cheeky video of the kids! Lexi loves singing and dancing! It's all she ever does and I love watching her! In this video she gears up for the world cup! Jake and Lexi play together so well now, always laughing! Enjoy :)

Turning 22

I recently had a birthday, it was the 1st of June and I turned 22! Exciting! I didn't want to do anything for my birthday, all I wanted to do was sit at home with Craig and the kids and that's exactly what we did! Craig and I have been working so much that we are hardly all together at the same time! So it was lovely! I did however have a night out the night before with my friends, which was fun! 

Just a short post to show you what I got :) 

If you hadn't noticed, I asked for candles! The Yankee candle has to be my favourite it smells delicious! 

My converse :) 

What I wore on my night out, loving the high pony at the minute!

Graces gladiators

I have this friend, known each other since we were young, and last night she made me so proud. She was run of her feet, sweating in places you don't even want to know, and dressed as a clown (which is quite standard for her actually) all for cancer research, and a special little lady! 

My friend is called Kristy... This is us back when we was around 14ish on holiday in Malta. 

So Kristy's family looked after a little girl called Grace, and when ever they were looking after her and I was at their house, she was such a happy bubbly little girl who loved to sing wind the bobbin up! After many many years of Grace fighting through so much, last year she sadly lost her battle to leukemia

Kristy is part of the relay for life that is held at a local primary school every year, the team this year is called Graces Gladiators. Kristy organised a charity night, to raise funds for cancer research, and to remember Grace, and boy did she do well. There was an amazing turn out, lots of people dressed in fancy dress, a live band, food, raffle and various stalls. For most the night she was running around like a headless chicken, but I managed to pull her away to have a dance to the bands version of wind the bobbin up, which was brilliant! Kristy made such a lovely speech, which I know was hard to get through for her, but she managed and just needed a little cuddle afterwards, and there was plenty of people there for her. There was a moment, that nearly had me down in tears, when Kristy and her mum, Cheryl, hugged each other so tight and just cried, it was a sad but beautiful moment seeing them two there for one another. 

Every one involved did an amazing job and the final total of money raised was £1870.50! Which is just unreal! 

So really this is just a special blog post to say well done to my girl, and that a lot of people are proud of her and everyone else that helped towards the night.

I could go on and on, but I won't, because I am sure people reading have kids screaming at them in the back ground, so I will just finish by saying...

Good job.
