Although before starting i feel compelled to add a picture of my John Lennon style Santa 😆
I will have to change his eyes 😆
Do feel i should add extra pictures of the stained glass windows (with guest appearance of one done by visiting Uncle Rich, who insisted on Aussies style red soil instead of grass or snow 🙄 Note all our lovely snow out the back 🙂
Bottom left of above is Amelie’s one with poo streaks – everyone else copied 🙄 She maintains it is in homage to the penguin NattyEm bought Josie, who Josie immediately named Penguin Poo, for reasons i have never worked out 😆 *I* think Amelie is a very bad influence on my other, more easily suppressed, children 😆
It was really lovely to have my brother here – he made an amazing snowman with them all, using up all the snow in garden, which the weather then obligingly replaced. I do hope this lasts till Xmas Day – it is just so Christmassy!!!!
I’ve put up this rather gorgeous light tree tonight. I’d planned it as a grown up thing but in the end decided it would warm the cockles of all our hearts more if it displayed their coloured in decorations 🙂
Max was a little more restrained than last year when buying the tree this year, so we don’t feel like we’ve just walked through the back of the wardrobe into Narnia – much more manageable and lots of fun (once i’d done the lights!) to decorate!
Still got lots of creative things left to do – guess we didn’t do the planned educational topic but plenty of other stuff has happened along the way and we’ve had a lovely couple of weeks 🙂
