Well we have had a wonderfully Christmassy weekend full of anticipation as to what's to come! Yesterday we put up our tree and decorations much to Alex's delight.
In the afternoon, although it was freezing cold, the sun was shining, so we wrapped up nice and warm and went to our local park only to discover that there was a huge sheet of ice on it. This turned out to be a source of great joy and fun as we spent a happy 45 minutes sliding on it...knee slides
and spinning stunts from Alex, and a rather more cautious upright slide from me!
This morning it was the toy service at church. Lots of children bringing loads of toys for those who don't have any, combined with a lovely message of giving.
To finish off the lovely Christmassy weekend, at the indoor play area I took Alex to see Santa (a rather young a skinny one, I might say) which he was delighted with, so all in all we had a lovely weekend.
As part of our Christmas decorations Alex made this little Christmas house, all by himself...he refused to let me help him!
He saw the ones on the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and decided that he wanted to have a go at making one...I gave him the box, card, wrapping paper, selotape and glue and let him get on with it and this is what he came up with. I am entering this into the SSSS 'house rules' and Freshbrewed 'Christmas'
This is my latest Christmas card, made with white embossing over a white background and then a splash of red with the red snowflake ribbon. I am entering this into CCCB 'photo inspiration challenge (I took the colours as my inspiration), Tuesday Throwdown's 'white Christmas', Simon says stamp 'snowflakes', Aud Sentiments 'anything goes with a Christmas sentiment' and Stampin for the weekend 'let it snow'.
That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
