Paddington Bear's 50th birthday teddy bear picnic

Today Paddington Bear turned 50!!!

Great Coates Foundation Stage held a birthday Picnic for him!!!! Paddington Bear is also helping a charity to raise funds for premature baby units! So at the school there was a £1 entrance fee for teddies, name cards, guess the weight of the cake, raffles, etc!!! We are hoping to raise £150 for the charity!! All the money hasn't been counted up yet!!!

Aimee won a chocolate Teddy Lolly Pop from Thornton's, mmh love their chocolate!!!!(Sorry Sue you didn't win anything, but thanks for the donation)

Unfortunately I can't post any pics of the children (Data Protection Laws), but I have posted some of Aimee and the cake!!!!! (this is why there is no photos of Lazy Town, due to me taking photos at the event and editing them to bring in tomorrow!

The children loved the day and had a great time, even though it rained while we were playing a game, but we quickly moved it into the school hall!!!!!

We had Jam Sandwiches, Teddy Bear Shaped Crisps (Pom Bears), Teddy Bear shaped cookies, hot dogs, tomatoes (a lot of the children love tomatoes), sweets, juices, and Teddy bear buns that the children decorated themselves!!!!!

I would like to say thanks to the Foundation Staff, the volunteers who helped make this a fantastic day for the children!


Lazy Town

I took Aimee to see Lazy Town today!!! She loved it, I thought it was a good show too, very much audience participation!!! Everyone up and dancing!!!!

I got Aimee a Stephanie baseball hat and the brochure!!!!

Me been me, managed to get the cast to sign her poster from the brochure, needless to say she is made up!!!! I will post some photos another time!!!

Here's the deal - I like competition, especially FRIENDLY competition :)

As many of you may be aware, Jill (our founder) and I, like to go back and forth to see who is more "popular"... all in good fun of course! LOL!

So, it's that time again - I've LET Jill get WAAAAAAAAY too far ahead of me in the "friends" count, so I'd like to recruit more friends. I know you're out there!

The BRIBE is this:

I need 1,000 more friends before the end of June!

I will award TEN AMAZINGLY-STUFFED PRIZE PACKAGES (to include some heidi swapp, basicgrey, american crafts, and daisy d's product - among other spectacular things) to TEN random people that are on my friends list as of June 30th!

If you are already my friend - you're automatically included in the random drawing.

If you're not already my friend, PLEASE view my profile page and click "add to friends" under my bio. Do it before June 30th and you'll be entered into my random drawing :)

I love meeting new people, so c'mon! ADD ME!
