|Another leaf fight|
Smallest's first football game of the indoor season was today. Small stayed at home by himself with one job to do, empty the dishwasher, which he failed. However, he did play on the Wii and was dressed when we got home to take him out for dinner. Huffle and I took Smallest to his game, in which he forgot to take his water. I wanted to get some stuff from the pharmacy but ran off to get him some water on the way.
I got my stuff but had to leave so I could take some ibuprofen gel for Smallest's back as he was already complaining just ten minutes into the game. As well as his back, he also had a nosebleed when he was elbowed and had to come off for some mummy X 3 medical help. All the Mum's rushed to help him, plus some of the Grandads. We sorted him out and he went straight back on but not before the other team scored a goal. Smallest's team ended up winning 3-1. It was a very entertaining game.
We picked up some wine on the way back and got Small and then all went for dinner where we played Sorry Revenge whilst waiting. After dinner we popped to the Thrifty Store and picked up a couple of books and a golf ball collector.
At home, we put Smallest in the bath with Epsom salts to ease his back, while he watched Little House on the Prairie (he is learning all about the early settlers and is finding it all fascinating). Small carved out his pumpkin and we put it on the front porch (apparently a squirrel was found later eating the insides of the pumpkin) and then put our gummy worms in the jelly brain. Yuk.
After we all sorted out our costumes for the evenings trick or treating, we sat and watched the other half of the Hobbit film. We had a visit from MrsRoyal whose idea of trick or treating is to visit each house that she wishes to 'treat' and deposit her wares once she has seen the costumes and then her and MrRoyal go out for the evening somewhere.
We had a quick tea and Smallest started to feel sick and have tummy ache (after I painted his face green). As we all descended outside ready to take a walk to Garfunkels house as she had requested we pop down before our walk around the Hamlet. Smallest never made it off the drive as he had awful trapped wind (which we found out later as he burped and trumped his way from house to house). Small and I visited Grafunkel, had a drink of blue juice, a Rice Krispie square, a bag of goodies for later and a chat and then made our way back home. Smallest was feeling better so we took the car to the main part of the village and walked from there.
There were so many really well decorated houses (no alcohol this year) with plenty of people behind the doors dressed up too and some fabulously carved pumpkins. We moved the car a few times but also did plenty of walking. We collected far too much 'candy' but the kids really enjoyed it (the collecting, they didn't eat any of it ...........YET).
