Grotto Art

Journalling reads: No-one can deny that Harrods always go a step further than most when it comes to their Christmas Grotto. While the staff dressed in costumes and singing Christmas carols while the kids wait is a great start to the visit, it’s always the decorations that fascinate the kids most. This year the thing that excited them the most was these paintings, “Mum, look it’s that car from our book flying over the shop and a soldier like Windsor”.

Journalling reads: We thought it might be fun to make a place for Candy Cane to live while he was visiting. Logan had a great time decorating the “igloo” with stickers, stamps, felt tips, pieces of cut up paper, washi tape and my wooden shapes.

The Snow Factory

Journalling reads: Sometimes the best family activities are the spur of the moment ones. We had seen all of the posters around that were advertising the Snow Factory, but none of us were really sure exactly what it would involve. Since we were in the city centre shopping anyway, around one of the evening performances, we thought we may as well check it out. We got there early and found a seat on the bench, there was Christmas music playing and we were able to enjoy hot sausage rolls and take some family photos by the Christmas tree. It ended up being a short animated film projected on to the walls of the Oxford Castle. Ending with a real snowstorm. It’s strange but this ended up being one of our favourite December activities as a family.

Do You Want To Build A Snowman

Credits: Layered template (Memory Makers, Volume 13, Template 3) and Ice Princess both by Jen C Designs. Font is Champagne & Limousines Bold.
Journalling reads: Logan was nearly 3.5 when he first got to see snow. It was kind of awesome because he was just old enough to enjoy it without worrying about the cold. All he really wanted to do was build a snowman. Luckily there was plenty of snow in thegarden to make a little snowman. They started off by making 2 large snowballs, with the help of Daddy and a plastic tray. Then for some reason they decided it needed a golf club as arms and a great big black bucket as a hat, and they refused to give it a face. They all had a lovely time and were very sad to see he had melted away the next day, oh well the snow was lots of fun while it lasted.

Trimming The Tree

Journalling reads: I still love this photo of our first Christmas tree, since we had never had our own place before, we had to start from scratch. Luckily there was a tree in the loft from previous tenants and the kids had some ornaments we had bought them that used to be displayed on Nan’s tree. We filled tin the big gaps with some random Christmas toys of the kids. Even though most people don’t have beanie babies, snowmen and tiny bears on the tree, it was very special to all of us.
