As a quick recap, we took part in Liskeard's Lights Up where we made lanterns which we took through the town before the lights went on. I always laugh when the tree goes on as the lights only ever start halfway up.
Genies and a bit of Aladdins palace (I think)
A lovely boat.
There were loads of others including a fantastic Genies head with a moving jaw -you can see more on Flickr.
A few craft fairs and lots of cooking.
We like to think of Christmas as the winter festival, we love Carols and visit local churches searching for a meaning to all the madness! I'm not religious, but I love the memories of childhood christmas's and the story of the nativity. We are doing some work on the house which has meant -there is stuff and dust everywhere!
So sadly for the kids we don't have many decorations up.
A house full of dust.
So we have made some bits instead!
Homemade crackers.(very homemade!)
And a paper star.
I have content myself by looking at last years decorations instead.
What do I get for my decorations instead?
Old boots, no one will have a tea at ours again!
