It was a monster mash...

Yesterday at the park Denver suddenly declared that she wanted to throw a monster party. We are the kind of people who throw random parties, so off we headed to the supermarket to grab some snacks, and home to set up. After blowing up loads of black balloons, we got down to costumes. Denver had decided already that she was going to be a ghost. Kyla decided she wanted to be a mummy, Sienna a BAD mermaid, and even Madi wanted to join in, as a vampire.

After the obligatory photoshoot, it was time for snacks. These included slime soda's, blood soda's, dinosaur cupcakes and shrunken brains (popcorn).

Then they watched their favourite Scooby-doo movie, Ghoul School!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
