Sunday Snapshots.....

I am pooped. The lead up to Christmas seems to have been non stop. I took the boys to see Father Christmas at Longleat this week with our friends Alice and Indigo. It was totally awesome. I have never been before. I did slightly gawp at the £31 entry fee however for what you see it really is worth it. We drove through the safari amongst tigers, lions, rhino, zebra, elephant - the list goes on - and as Lenny is completely obsessed with animals but never seen any of these apart from in books or on the TV he was totally bowled over. A boy in heaven. I could not believe how close you get the big cats and other potentially lethal creatures! Make sure you put the child locks on the windows and doors!!!! We then took a magical train ride through a winter wonderland to see the reindeer and the big guy himself which was fantastic but I forgot the babybjorn and you cannot take buggies so had my hands VERY full with 2 kids and all our stuff so sadly did not get any pictures - that would have tipped me over the edge! Anyway, if you want a family activity I highly recommend Longleat - take a picnic and make a day of it. The rest of the week was spent at various Christmas parties, eating mince pies, wrapping presents, trying to get a grip on the washing before we leave for the holidays, taking some walks and cooking pancakes. We also made a cheeky early start on some of the boys presents - I know this is a bit naughty but this way we get to open some at home and they get spread out a bit. Thank you so much to all the godparents and Gran and Grandpa - what a spoilt brood we have! Have a fabulous Christmas everyone.
