Spencer enjoys the ride, yet is happier to take in the scenery and have a bit of a chat.

While these are only progress pictures (I hope to get movie stills!) you can see the pants, there is a singlet top, shrug style thing, and a two part jacket, so that the top part with sleeves and hood come off and the waist piece with the belt stay on. Best of all we managed to finish not only this but also another similar jacket. WOW Intense to say the least , but complete.

The reason I like this one in particular is the story behind it. The families daughter was just married and was involved in a serious car accident either on her honeymoon or shortly after. The accident took the life of her new husband and left her in a very serious condition in the Alfred Hospital. She was there for a significant length of time.
She survived the crash and has recovered (i believe to a point) and as an act of gratitude decorate their house taking donations for the hospital that saved their daughters life. We visited the house four years ago and now it has quadrupled in lights. I would hate to see their electricity bills, but there were so many people there and they all get into the spirit of christmas. It is amazing that lights can make you really value your family. *My pictures really do not show how amazing this place is.

I made yellow tracksuit pants out of fabric I had in my stash. It is yellow track and field that I used for the lion costume. I picked up the end of the bolt for only $5 with no intention of using it - and now it had done three costumes!
Mum made the jackets, again from fabric she had. It is suiting that has been lying around for years. The buttons were some I got at another sale years ago, where I was charged by the bagfull, and were just perfect for this. Even better there are no button holes - just velro under the top flap.Finally to top off the ensemble, Mr P gave them the hats - complete with visors from the ELC at the Glen. Rare to find hats which aren't red flat ones. And the absolute hit of the evening was the torches - which not only have lights at the front, but flash different colours at the back - like a siren. All in all very successful fireman sams, two very happy little boys and a real team effort.

Now I know most people go over a little bit, but even still this was really hard. I have met Daniel and he is a really nice boy and has really looked out and after Alexander in the playground, so I wanted something a bit fun - but I didn't really know what he was into.
I bought this flashing cup from one of those 'promotional product stalls in a shopping centre. I was exactly $5. Check. I didn't count the money to decorate it.Alexander was given a cup like this as a gift and loves it - the lights flash all different colours and we used fabric puff paint to decorate it. AS it has batteries in it, it cant go in the dishwasher so the writing should last. And it was really well appreciated.
