December catch up, part one
Hmm, I’ve discovered I’ve quite a few photos to catch you up with my blogging gap, so I’ll post them over a few days rather than one big lump! This post includes the December up until Christmas.
At the beginning of December we had quite a lot of snow, like a lot of people in the UK I think! My daughter loved it, especially throwing snowballs:
and making a snowman with granny (yes Sian, he is wearing the hat you knitted, it suits him I think!):
And on the 12th of December Father Christmas came to our town. There’s a Christmas parade every year and the man himself goes down the chimney of a hotel/pub in the town centre, and greets kids in the grotto at the bottom. We didn’t queue to see him in the grotto but the parade was good:
We also visited Winchester Christmas markets and bought a few pressies:
On the 19th we went to our friend’s wedding in Bedford, I was quite impressed we made it there as the weather was terrible, snow everywhere. I don’t really have any pics from the wedding that I can share, but here’s the card I made for the happy couple:
And the final photo for today, the Christmas cake I made. The recipe is Mulled Wine Christmas cake, and I really like the flavour. I make it with Rosie and then we split the cake in half as it makes quite a big cake. Then we decorate our own halves. She clued me in on painting the icing with a paintbrush dipped in food colouring, which made it quite fun:
