Merry Christmas Everyone!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

It's Christmas Eve and I have been busy as usual. I like to make Christmas Eve special for the girls so we spent the day tracking Santa with Norad whilst doing lots of fun things. We've spent some time watching movies this morning then having a lovely makeover session nails, hair, lipstick, blusher and eye shadow. The girls loved it.

This afternoon we went to Coventry Cathedral to the journey to Bethlehem service. It's a lovely service where the children go dressed as nativity characters and then they move round the cathedral whilst the nativity story is told. My girls were angels. The carols are lovely but one of the girls favourite parts is at the end when everyone stands round the outside in a huge circle and they get a candle.


After the Cathedral service we went to Mcdonalds for tea something which we do every Christmas Eve. It's great as it means no preparing or washing up! In a busy time I have found that this is one of the best things to do.

This evening we have been to another church service at our local church the one which my daughter goes to for Brownies. Their service was a scratch nativity so people just turn up and then as the story is told they get given parts. Lillie was in her element as they asked for a Mary and her hand was straight up. She had to read quite a few lines and she was fab. Quite a few people commented after at how good she was at reading! Proud mummy!! The scratch nativity was good I did find it funny that Mary was played by Lillie 7 and Joseph played by a 40 something man! I know Mary was supposed to be very young and younger than Joseph but wow that's an age gap! I also got 2 lines to read being an inn keeper!

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Don't tell Santa I was Peaking will you!


Merry Christmas everyone!

I would like to wish all of you who read my blog a very merry Christmas to you and your families. Enjoy the festivities and try not to overdo it. I know for me it's easier said than done!
