A round up of our Autumn, with photos!


Autumn leaves @ ups and downs, smiles and frowns

We have had a fantastic Autumn. We achieved quite a few things on our bucket list and still have a few to go (which we're going to do over the next couple of weeks).
At the start of Autumn, Ellie turned seven years old. I still find it hard to believe that she is seven years old already! She had a lovely birthday and got lots of really great gifts.

We really enjoyed lots of things about Autumn. Harry's favourite thing about Autumn is onsie weather! Of all things, lol!
We enjoyed a lovely Autumn walk, where we spotted some squirrels running around in the trees. They're so cute.

Harry went on a school trip to London and learned a lot about 'The Clink' and the river Thames, I wish he could have taken photos but camera's were not allowed!
We all enjoyed the mild weather that came along with Autumn, which was nice and we really made the most of it.

We had some family time and watched some movies, the kids really enjoyed 'The Lego Movie'. 

In October, Harry turned eleven years old. My first born child is now eleven years old, whoa! Where has time gone?! He also had a brilliant Birthday! He got some fabulous gifts and had a friend 'round for dinner!

 We also baked some really lovely Halloween cupcakes, (with a few random ones thrown in, haha) which the kids really enjoyed.

Penguins at Colchester zoo

We enjoyed a trip to the zoo, which was awesome! We haven't ever been to the zoo in the Autumn time before. The zoo looked SO beautiful in the Autumn time and we had a blast! It's hard to choose my favourite animal but I know Ellie enjoyed the penguins!

Easy Halloween cupcakes

Speaking of Halloween, the kids had a fab time Trick Or Treating. We didn't stay out for too long though. They got some yummy Halloween treats! And we also watched some Halloween movies, we enjoyed 'The Haunted Mansion' which is one movie I had never seen before.

 We still have a few Autumnal things to look forward to. Such as Guy Fawkes night. We'll probably have some fireworks and some (What I call) bonfire food on guy Fawkes night and enjoy spending time together as a family. 

Our cat Lotti isn't liking the cooler weather - she sleeps instead!
