Yesterday saw Betsy getting VERY busy as she not only had a lovely morning session at Grangewood School in Pinner followed by a fun circus themed play session at the "My Mum's Away" nursery at the Cavendish in Eascote. As you can see the children all had a lot of fun "clowning around" by dressing Betsy up in splendid style.

It's been a fantastic 2014 for Little Shakers, Vanessa and Betsy can't wait to start classes up again in 2015. Throughout the year many of our parents often remarked how much the children love the Little Shakers music and asked how they could get hold of some of our exclusive tracks to play at home. With this in mind, this coming term we shall be running another collectors card scheme. Little Shakers who collect eight stamps before the Easter break will earn an exclusive (age appropriate) Little Shakers C.D.

Betsy Meets Santa

After a day out meeting "One Direction" in Central London, Betsy & Vanessa had lots of fun today watching the real Union J & none other than Take That switching on the magnificent Christmas lights in Regent Street. She even popped into her favourite toy shop Hamley's to give her list to Father Christmas. Santa said if she's a very good little girl, he may just drop by & surprise all the Little Shakers at their end of term Christmas parties this year.... now she really is excited!

Another a super Email in our inbox yesterday, along with a lovely photo of one of our former Ealing Little Shakers Marisa with Vanessa at her 6th Birthday party. Marisa may have outgrown a Little Shakers party, but on the plus side, instead she was able to get Vanessa to come along and do one of her fantastic "Dance Divas" themed parties for her. To quote Marisa's mum Neha... "All the kids had such fun and looking through the photos they are all so happy and enjoying themselves..."

We just received a lovely heart warming Email from Nicola who brought her little boy along to our RUISLIP class this morning & I quote...

"Hi Vanessa, I just wanted to let you know that both Tiernan and myself enjoyed your class this morning and we will be back next Monday. Thank you so much, the class is really enjoyable and there is a lovely atmosphere. Nicola"

Thank YOU so much for coming Nicola & for such kind words it really made our day!

Betsy & Vanessa wearing their poppies with pride for the Remembrance Day parade in Ruislip High St. today. Betsy especially loved the R.A.F. band and the fantastic drummers, perhaps it's because she's used to all the drumming and noise that our favourite Beaver, Vanessa's son Joel makes every day on his own drum kit?

Did you spot the Betsy-Bus at Legoland Windsor today? It was one very excited Betsy's first visit there, so especially exciting for her to get to wear her new Halloween fancy dress costume for the annual "Brick Or Treat" festivities & fireworks. She loved how the bright orange pumkin suit matched her red hair a "treat" too.

Well after such a lovely Summer, the rain was bound to come tumbling down eventually... Not that it bothered Betsy one bit, it gave her the perfect excuse to show off her brand new raincoat & matching wellies to all her Little Shakers at Ruislip this morning..... Let's hope she won't have to wear it again on Thursday at Ealing.
