Christmas Tree Hunt (A)

The night Tom took the older two to see 'The Railway Children' (performed at Waterloo station with a real steam train!) Reuben (possibly sensing he was missing out) asked to 'go out into the dark' and go 'some place'. It was 6pm and they were fed and I was preparing for bed (usually 7pm for them) but I decided to brave the cold and dark and do something......we ended up on a local Cmas tree hunt!

It was wonderful.

of some of our recent activites...

...beautiful St Mary's church

Here Eddie is Christmas shopping on his own (Tom hovered about), using his own money to buy gifts for us. I can't wait to see what I got! In anticipation for this shopping trip he told Tom he was so excited he could cry.

Yes I am (A)

Anyone else remember this book? I vividly remember the pictures and story from my own childhood.

Stella took a happy interest in it too.....

Careful reading.

Not so happy now. Is the subject matter disturbing her? This book asks some big questions.

Not happy. Not happy at all.

Bravely holding back the tears. The book now closed.
