My Sunday Photo 23rd Dec

This week has been about going right back to the title of my blog, and we have had a lot of fun. Sorry to my 365'ers you will have read this already but the

On Sunday I took the older two to the pantomime, and I think it is lovely that at 16 Fifi still wants to come. This is part of their Christmas every year and to me I prefer to pay for memories and experiences than presents.

On Thursday we went and had our daft laugh a minute annual family and friends Christmas colouring competition where we go usual to our local 'Spoons and we have a meal and a drink and sit and colour in Christmas pictures. Again it is the older grandchildren that encourage this because they love it so much. I think it is so lovely they still want to do this.
 The candy cane top right won, We got the duty manager to choose the winner.

On Friday as I had won four tickets I took the twins and one of their friends ( in the middle) to a show in Glasgow, Mr Poppers penguins. The show was amazing, the children were in fits of laughter throughout not to mention when we got "snowed on" on our way to Antarctica and they really enjoyed dancing like penguins at the end. We also stopped in at McD's as it is a place they never go due to their big brothers food allergy issues and they hear their friends talk about it. Dinky went on more about McD's than she did the show.

I had forgot to pick up their juice so stopped at a petrol station and picked up three cans. and decided to give them those in McD's and kept their fruit shoots for the show.

So lots of fun has been had in the build up to Christmas.

Hope you all have a great time what ever you are doing for the big day. We are off to volunteer again on the big day this year to a local church hall to help serve a five course meal and drinks to members of the community who would be home alone for Christmas other wise and it is all for free. Was great fun last year with games and dancing and a visit from Santa.



  1. That certainly is 'fun as a gran'. I'm not surprised that Fifi still enjoys the panto, I know my boys still enjoy it too - there's always plenty of jokes that go over the adults' heads. How lovely that the twins got to try their first McDonald's - it must be hard for them to be restricted by their brother's allergies.
    Merry Christmas to you all!

  2. You did have fun and I love their sweet faces. Merry Christmas! #mysundayphoto
