because raising a large family isn’t for the faint-hearted

#OreoCookieQuest Joyful Family Moments

This post is an entry for BritMums #OreoCookieQuest, sponsored by Oreo.

Oreo is celebrating The Great Oreo Cookie Quest promotion on-packs now, which means anyone can pick up a pack and have a chance to win awesome prizes, including a once-in-a-lifetime trip to California and the Googleplex!

To celebrate this, we are taking part in our very own cookie quest to support The Great Oreo Cookie Quest as we love spending time together as a family.

In fact, last year I turned the big 4-0 and hubby tried to organise a surprise party but when I found out I asked that they didn’t throw me a party as I wanted to do something as a family instead and go somewhere we had never been before.

So my 40th was spent visiting Legoland Windsor with my parents, hubby and all five children! Reese was thrilled to meet Batgirl but was upset that Supergirl wasn’t around.

Becky spent ages walking around all the Legoland models which represented several different countries moaning that she couldn’t find Wales. When she finally did she was thrilled, although she couldn’t help but laugh at everyone who pronounced Caerphilly as car-fully!

Whilst we were down in Kent visiting family after Legoland, Becky made an interesting announcement regarding Welsh and English sheep. Namely that English sheep say BAAH and Welsh sheep say MEEH

To celebrate The Great Cookie Quest, the girls came up with a little challenge for all my followers and decided to have a little competition as well. They’ve hidden some Oreo Cookies in some pictures of their favourite things and they want you to count how many you think you can see and then comment on the post below. Don’t forget to use Gleam for your entry to count which you can find below.
