Oooh what a busy Halloween we have had this year ... Esther and I are currently curled up on the sofa, watching a spooky film. We are yawning like banshees but tooo tired to climb the stairs up to bed ..hahaha All our excitement today has left my poor little Angel a little bit agitated and twitchy with her epilepsy, so we are just snuggling downstairs until she feels happy enough to go to bed (Esther's epilepsy and seizure activity is often at its worst as she's falling asleep and thru' the night and also as she wakes up in a morning, if she is particularly anxious sometimes its just best to snuggle on the sofa ...for as long as it takes for her to be calmed ...which can be all night :( but we have lots of snuggle quilts to keep us warm so its OK) So whilst I'm waiting for my Angel to settle I'll share our busy busy day :)
Baking ...lots and lots of Baking ...
A close -up of those yummy Pumpkin-Patch-Muffins, with Chocolate (soil) frosting and baby Marshmallow Pumpkins growing on top. We baked 4 dozen of these ...glad I kept a few back as they all disappeared too :)
We carved our Pumpkins too...the little one had a bit of an 'incident' with Angel Mim and needed staples to maintain that toothy grin ..hehehe
The Angel's painted paper mache Pumpkins turned out well .... I sooooooo wanted to 'tidy' them up and paint over the sparse patches ...but I couldn't :) my Angels are sooo proud of their Pumpkins...
This is why we did soooo much baking ...
Back home, and before poor Esther's jitters started she was modelling her Pumpkin Guard uniform :)
My favourite picture of our day ...
Sadly whilst I've been updating and writing away, little Esther has had a nasty seizure (a Grand
Mal/Tonic Clonic seizure) :( Obviously I did stop writing to comfort her .... I thought she was 'brewing' for one ...you can just see the agitation and jitteriness building in her little body ...the best way I can describe it is, that its like a build up of electrical energy ...like how a light bulb can glow extra bright just before it pops. Thats kind of how it is with Esther's seizures :( Now that she's had the seizure she'll hopefully settle and sleep well tonight, partly because she's exhausted (someone once told me that the effects of a seizure on your body leaves you as exhausted as if you'd run a marathon) she's certainly very tired and now that all that pent up 'electrical' energy has dispersed she should be happy to settle into bed and hopefully sleep :) Poor little chicken, sometimes life just doesn't seem fair does it ? But she'll be good now hopefully for a little while ...till we start 'brewing' again ...hey ho... lets hope its just all down to the Pumpkin excitement we've had today ... :)
And today being the 31st October makes it the last day of 'Pumpkintober' ...and I have to be honest and say its been hard work at times writing and posting each day ...I'm glad I met my own kooky, odd-ball challenge ..hahaha But I'll be happy not to be posting each day ...and I would love to think that maybe Elder Kirby in Lanzarote, Spain, might one day get to see some of the Pumpkiness he missed this year ... only one more October to go and then he'll be home ...seems such a long, long way away!
Time to try and take my Angel upstairs ... if not we'll have to watch another spooky film .... :)
Beware the ghosties and ghoulies hiding under you beds ..hehehe
