When my own children were young we always had a Christmas tradition of making home made mince pies so we could leave some out for Santa.

So carrying on this tradition we decided that Auntie T would bring Fifi and Bob round at 2.30 in time for me coming in from work and Fifi and Auntie T are going to make mince pies. Due to time constraints we are using Jus-rol ready rolled puff pastry.

Now as we cant let Bob near this procedure as he cannot handle these type of products without making him ill, and as I don't think his mummy will be to pleased if we end up in A&E on Christmas Eve. So Bob and I are making Bob friendly top hats and chocolate crispie cakes.

The kids had a ball, they happily went home with stuff to leave out for Santa, gave them something to do to help pass a few hours for them, gave mummy a few hrs peace, and gave me a few hrs of fun, its just so nice to be able to do this sort of thing with them.
