Last night the boys wanted to take Elfie and Chippie, our Elves on the Shelf to bed with them.
Our naughty elves got the boys shoes out last night and lined them up like a train and then sat in them with some of the boys toys.
Our elves have been up to no good last night and have eaten some of the chocolates out of the wife’s advent calendar!
As mentioned two days ago, Elfie and his new friend Chippie didn’t return to our home after a day of extraordinary bad behaviour from both boys.
Unfortunately today our Elf on the Shelf Elfie hasn’t returned to us and has in fact taken the whole house he had built back to the North Pole with him.
Our Elf on the Shelf is back and he has brought a friend, we will bring you more on the new elf as and when we have it, name etc!
The boys were ecstatic to see him and literally squealed with delight at seeing his house (a post on how to make your own coming soon).
Elf on the Shelf 2018
Our Elves are on their way back to us so they’ve sent the builders ahead to prep for their arrival!
We woke this morning to discover this scene including a crack in the wall.
Its been almost a year since we last published a post on 2 Bottles of Milk, so where have we been?
Last Christmas I was so ill that I spent most of Christmas Day in bed asleep and it got me thinking about how hectic our lives were and how we needed to relax and let something rest for a while and that was unfortunately the blog! With everything that Leo had gone through and a new baby, as well as life in general it was the easiest thing to let go and allow more time for all the other stuff that was going on at that point.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been using #mysundayphoto to revisit some of the highlights of the last year. After a stressful year it’s has been nice to look at the good times we’ve had.
This week we are off to the woods.
Way back in January the boys and I took a trip to a local woods that I have frequented since I was a toddler. It is a lovely woods that has changed a lot over the years but is still a firm favourite of mine and now my family.
The above picture was taken of the boys whilst they were sitting on a carved seat. The woods are a managed woods and trees are periodically cut down and every now and then you come across a stub where it has been deliberately left and carved into a seat. Oliver in particular loved coming across these and climbing on them and pretending he was king of the castle.
Over the last few months we have written regularly about Leo’s Hearing Loss and his Assessment Process for Cochlear Implants at London’s St Thomas Hospital.
To say that this journey has been emotional is an understatement and it has also been stressful for Leo. It is a journey that has taken longer then we expected, however since we last wrote we have had some huge developments and his journey has moved forward significantly which has been a good yet stressful and emotional time.
