We also started making a display, as we learnt about Guy Fawkes and made rockets and coloured pictures to go on our kitchen wall
Friday night we had our own bonfire with some family, sharing mushy peas, hot dogs, bonfire toffee, parkin, cupcakes, cheesecake and hot chocolate - a fair feast for all!
Building the bonfire
Staying warm with the little ones inside
Some of the yummy food on offer
Children playing then time for sparklers
Abigails first sparkler :-)
It was a fun night, and I used mostly disposable items so that there wasn't much clearing up to be done at the end of the day. The fire burned well and hubby ended up staying up until 2am checking on it - the next morning it was still hot and had some flames!!
Saturday night we were off to some good friends of ours for fireworks, fun and fellowship. It was so lovely to meet up with them all and the children had so much fun seeing each other - I am so grateful for the godly families God has brought into our lives over the last few years that my children have chance to have likeminded friends and peers to grow up with. I did get some pics but haven't managed to download them yet!
The only downside to the whole weekend was me dropping my blackberry down the toilet!!! So although I have a new one coming tomorrow I have lost all contacts, calendar information etc so will have to start again.
