a gruffalo party


after some hard work making some super spectacular birthday party invites...


and opening some super special birthday presents - mainly the most coveted of all - Lego...


We had ourselves a Gruffalo party for my biggest boy's 5th birthday.




He came equipped with purple prickles all over his back!




how delicious is my Montyzooma? I mean, come on!


After a Gruffalo reading, lots of Gruffalo food ie: Roasted Fox, Scrambled Snake Crackles, Gruffalo Punch, and Strawberry Mice, playing pin the wart on the Gruffalo, yummy Gruffalo cake, bubbles and playing.... we had the Gruffalo screening with Organic Lolypops.



..Other than that, March has been business as usual. We got a dehydrator and have done a LARGE batch of bananas before the prices went thru the roof, and ooodles and oooodles of apples.  I have preserved apples today and there is a rather large and scrumptious smelling apple and blackberry crumble in the over for after dinner.  Feeling a bit flat - what with the horrendous natural disasters around the globe, gloomy cool weather, and that whacky ol' moon. I hope this funky flat time passes soon. Are you feeling it too?

You never cease to amaze me Amy, I want dried apples and bananas! Seriously lacking in the fruit nutrition since prices went sky high, they are my favourite snack :( That Mont of yours cracks. me. up! What a funny little man he looks like. Oh and organic lollipops? Get me some of them!
