Christmas Lantern Parade and Light Switch on.

This evening was the Town's Christmas late night shopping, light switch on and lantern parade. All the children from school were given the following resources below..

Instructions were given on how to assemble and all in all we managed to make some fabulous lanterns..

Switching on the Christmas lights this year was Top Gear presenter James May. He pulled up alongside the children so we could all have some photos taken.

Such a fantastic evening and a great way to get you on the Christmas spirit aswel as sneaking in a bit of late night shopping.

Until next time.. 

Elf on the Shelf Day 4

So this morning the girls raced around the house crazily looking for the missing Elves who had disappeared again. After looking everywhere but the Kitchen they went in to breakfast to find these two happily say toasting marshmallows..

So pleased the Elves took 'Elf and safety' to great measures and used a battery operated tea light so they didn't burn those little hands..😂

It's the most wonderful time of the year..

Yes that's what it is.. And what a busy month it is already and we have only just started.

It's December 3rd and the tree is up. We spent last weekend decorating it whilst drinking hot chocolate topped with marshmallows.. 

It was great fun and much easier this year as we managed to pack away in an organised way. Each branch on this tree is colour coded so putting an elastic band around each group of colours gave us a super head start this year!

Tuesday December 1st we sorted out the Christmas movies and put them in the cupboard downstairs so they are easy to reach and are ready to be enjoyed.

Our top two family favourites are most definitely The Grinch and the Muppets Christmas Carol.

We also purchased a couple of new Christmas decorations.. Both the deer and the stocking decorations were from Tesco and the 'Tis the season' hanging decoration was from Home Bargains although I cannot remember the prices of any sadly.

Upcoming events

There are lots of Christmas events coming up, Meals, Parties, Pantomimes, concerts. Tomorrow night is our local towns Christmas light switch on and late night shopping. The girls have been chosen to join the lantern parade along with the other local Children from other Schools nearby.

Much left to do?

We are very much more organised than last year but still have a few gifts left to buy and all the good..Not forgetting the turkey!!!

Until next time..

Elf on the Shelf Day 3..

Those naughty Elves, look what they have done to the fruit bowl!!!!

They are both sat there looking quite happy with themselves.. I wonder if the girls will be happy when they find this after school..

See you tomorrow..

Letter from Santa..

We had a letter arrive.. It was from SANTA!!!!!

The girls are over the moon and super excited about their old Elf arriving and their new female sidekick Elf..

I wonder what they have in store for us this year..

Keep watching..
