A Family Day Out.

on Monday, 16 December 2013.

I am very fortunate to live down the road from most of my family which is lovely.  Mr E's side of the family, however, live 'up norf' in Manchester.  We therefore don't get to see them as much, although of course we have the power of Skype.  The last few years we have had a 'fake Christmas' at our house a couple of weeks before the actual big day, but this year for a number of different reasons we haven't done that.

So this past weekend they came down to meet us and we went to Stamford, which is about 35 minutes away.  We had a lovely day, ate lots, walked around and window shopped, and exchanged gifts which are under the tree ready to be opened via Skype on Christmas Day.

She carried around her backpack all day, it has lots of random treasures inside- including a toothbrush, LL's nappies, a Father Christmas toy, a Touch Eclait lid, and some gloves.  Essentials some may say.

We hitched a ride.

Yum.

Dressed up warm like a little bear.  Not sure she was too happy about it though.

We had pizza.

She loved the twinkly lights.  And looked rather grown up in her coat.

Big news.  We have top teeth.  Neither of us are particularly happy about this.

All in all it was a lovely day, and got us feeling even more festive.  Less than two weeks until the big day!

    Beautiful pictures! Hope LL's teeth haven't been too much pain.

    I'm on Christmas countdown too, just 4 1/2 days at work this week till I get 2 weeks off!

    Enjoy the festivities.

    Ahhh it looks like you had a lovely fake Christmas. I love Mads big backpack full of treasure. I love the thing that children treasure! Can't believe LL has top teeth, she looks so different. x

      I adore watching her cart around little treasures, she does it every day. And LL's teeth have really changed her mouth, I am getting used to it now but I was a little sad for a few days- my baby is growing up far too quickly! x

    I am SO unorganised for Christmas - we've not even got a tree yet here! Papasaurus works a rolling rota so hasn't had Christmas off for the last 3 years but this year he is off from the 20th till into the New Year so we'll be enjoying so much needed family time too and days out - looks like yours was wonderful! x

      I think the top ones completely alter the shape of their mouth. It took me a while to get used to them but I have just about now. ;)
