Ruben is still made up with a bad cold so he has had a bit of a PC day playing Animal Jam and Minecraft. Hubby played Dungeons and Dragons with Bailey, Ruben and Cordelia which was nice as they haven't played it in a while. Piper and I meanwhile were busy looking for lego pieces to finish another of the Hobbit/LOTR sets. Piper had finished Weathertop earlier so she is really making progress. Still amazed when I look at the amount of lego we have in this house.
The girls were excited to find a lego figure today in their advent tree-Legolas' father Thranduil and the boys got a cloud city car today.
We watched an interesting programme on Channel 4 last night about Video Games and how they've changed the world, it was recommended by a friend and was really good. We let Bailey and Piper watch it too but it was quite shocking in places and the use of bad language seemed a bit unnecessary tbh. The bit about Minecraft was interesting though and it came across in a really good light especially in comparison to a lot of the other games. Very thought provoking and made for some interesting conversations with the children today.
We have had a few visitors today and the children had a great play with their friend R, they all played under the Christmas tree with the horses and when I asked why under the tree? They said it was because it looked like stars twinkling :) very sweet. Ruben had another birthday present from R which was two TMNT figures, he LOVES them and has been flinging pizzas and swords all evening. I was also given a late birthday bag full of goodies including this fantastic knitting book, I can't wait to get started on Big Ben!
Cordelia has done lots of horse pictures today, Bailey has finished this weeks maths assignment and I have ordered the Christmas turkey and Christmas dessert-yum, can't wait!!
