Christmas Day Tears....

... from a heartbroken Megan
 as Matt Smith regenerated in the Christmas Day episode of Dr Who.

We knew it was going to happen - 
and we are excited to see what Peter Capaldo will be like in the role -
but it is still so sad to see.

Paper Hats...

.... for Christmas Day dinner with Gma and Gpa.

Happy Christmas...

... up at 6.30am to open presents - Father Chrristmas still comes to our house!

Christingle Light

The lights are turned low - we sing Away in a Manger - and Christmas is so nearly here...

My birthday lunch...

... at Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Liverpool One.

I finally got to the Christmas Markets...

... working full time means no trips out in the week -
so the day after school finished for Christmas we were off to Manchester -
and after some shopping we saw the fabulous Frozen at the Printworks.

4 days left to Christmas!

The very wettest evening...

.... to be helping collect with the Rotary Father Christmas Float.

There was rain, more rain, wind, torrential wind, a mini gale and finally a hail storm!

But the little children {and quite a lot of adults} were delighted to see Father Christmas

And those who dared open their doors were very generous - 

and fortunatly Megs and Ben could bail out early as we passed our house -

so definatly worthwhile!

Christmassy Sunday at Liverpool One

It was a busy morning at FMC - I led worship as the children
 {not mine - they are too old - sob} 
did their Nativity Play.

Then off to Liverpool One for lunch at GBK - 
some present shopping
and then watching The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug -
with lots nad lots of lovely Elvish action!

Up on the 8th of December - a record for us!

A Pre-Christmas day trip to London - 
With a morning spent at Covent Garden

Lunch at Steak & Co
 {Seeing this in the New Year}

A quick wonder around the National Gallery Sainsbury Wing
{keeping a close eye out for hidden Zygons}

And the main event - 
Seeing the matinee of Mojo 
{starring all of Megan's lovely young men}

Very rude very violent and very funny.
Megs was a bit disappointed that there was no signing after the performance -

But a festive stroll up a very {very} crowded Regent Street made up for it.

Home by 9pm - tired and happy.
