Our half term is off to a somewhat bad start. Last Monday and Tuesday, poor Jack wasn't a bit well. He had to take a couple of days off school. I wanted to keep him off for a day or two longer, but he was keen to get back, and wasn't for missing his first Hallowe'en fancy dress school disco. He's mostly recovered, bar a chesty little cough. However, his brother and I have caught this nasty bug bad. Poor Noah has been really suffering for days. I'm a day behind him in weird symptoms, so I feel terribly sorry for him when he's feeling so rough, and then I get the symptoms the next day and feel even worse that he has to go through this. And, won't it ever end? It just seems to go on and on, and morph into new horridness. It's not a great start to our half term break. We've already had to cancel two days worth of plans.
As I mentioned, Jack's school had a Disney themed fancy dress disco before the Hallowe'en break began. Jack had a ball! Our Hallowe'en this year seems to have an unintentional pirate theme for us. We didn't have a disney themed costume, so some friends loaned us this one. How awesome does Jack look as Captain hook? Y'ar matey!
Our friends over at Zazzle sent Jack and Noah some awesome pirate themed clothing. Jack wears the Captain Jack Toddler baseball tee, and Noah compliments his big bro in this cute 'I'm with Jack' Toddler pullover hoody.
The weather now is about as miserable as Noah and I feel. Hopefully everything will pick up and we can enjoy our hallowe'en break. Maybe my little pirates will be feeling well enough for some trick or treating. Their appetites have been affected by this nasty bug, but something tells me they'll feel up to digging in to a full bag of yummies.
Thanks again to Zazzle for our lovely goodies. Happy Hallowe'en to you all and I'll leave you with our week that was:
