Firework Fun!

This time last year TC was 2¼, we bought a few small fireworks and wandered out into the garden to let them off.  We thought she would enjoy the sparkles, the colours, but maybe not the noise.  

So from a good distance, daddy let off the first firework, a lovely sparkly fountain, the result, TC was petrified, she ran back into the house, fireworks over!  We tried to cajole her out again to no avail, so daddy let the remaining few off & we watched behind the glass of the living room window.


This year at 3¼, we persuaded her that this is what is supposed to happen when we light the blue touch paper.  I bought some mini fireworks and sparklers and this evening we all had a sparkly good time!





We use to have such great bonfire parties every year to coincide with my birthday, with friends & neighbours at ours, food, drink, hot chocolate for the kids and of course a roaring bonfire and lots of "ooo's and ahhh's as the fireworks commenced. Everyone would chip in with a few fireworks so you can imagine the display!

We haven't had one of those parties for the past 5 years now, it just didn't seem appropriate to celebrate anything at the time after a family loss.  But time has moved forward and for TC, who has such a joy for life and loves a party (so like her mummy) we are going to reinstate the annual party next year and send a firework up into the stars in remembrance and love.

  5. We still have the look of utter fear from Lily. Bless her, she has never enjoyed them. I tried to coax her to the window this year, but she buried herself under daddy's armpit and didn't come out until it was all over!
