Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together. Just a bunch of normal family life pictures.

Saturday 1st December  2018

We started the day off with some potato printing! 

Lily was signing in the choir at the school Christmas fair today. It’s the first time she’s done it, so was a little nervous. She lakes in confidence with standing up in front of people so it was a big step for her. 

I wasn’t able to get a photo of her due to safety reasons but her she is afterwards in front of the school Christmas tree. 

It was a proper Christmassy day today as we put up the Christmas decorations too. 

Poor Sofia had been off school yesterday but she really wanted to venture out to see Lily sing, it was enough for her. She was shattered afterwards. 

She rested up so she could find a little more energy to put the tree up! 

Tree hugging! 

Every year we take a photo of each kid putting the star on the tree! 


Sunday 2nd December 2018

We all needed some fresh air, so we headed out to our local woods for a very small stomp. 

Dog is happy as long as he has someone to kick his ball! 

Or a log to practice his agility. 

and Lily is happy as long as she can feed her cuddly unicorn! 

She also wrote her letter to Santa which is the cutest thing ever. She decorated the letter inside and wrote a lovely note to Santa. Asking for a unicorn! After dinner, we had a little games evening. I had been sent Ticket To Ride Europe to try out first. I hadn’t played this game before but it was a great all family game which is aimed at 8yrs+ and 2-5 players. 

It took us a little while to get our heads around the game but there was 5 of us of varied ages trying to figure it out! 

Using your train pieces and stations you aim to connect your cities together, earning as many points as possible along the way too. I loved that this game is suitable for all ages, appealing to adults, and with a little bit of help the younger families members loved it too.

We’re looking forward to playing this game again and would be great for over the Christmas period for families.

Next game to try was Cobra Paw. This is a very simple and quick game and another one we all loved. 

Basically, the aim of the game is to match the dice pictures to the tiles and the first person to place their pointy finger on the dip in the middle. 

It went down so well with everyone! We laughed so much and it got pretty competitive as you can steal the winner tiles from the other players! 

I loved that all the pieces were stored in a small little box, so would be good to take around with you over the Christmas period. 

Did you have a lovely weekend?  Did you get your Christmas Tree up? 

*We were sent these board games to see what we thought of them. All words are honest and of my own * 

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram 

 I also post a daily picture on a separate Instagram account if you want to keep up with what we’re getting up to each day. Then at the end of the year, I put them together into a Photobook.

  1. I can’t remember what we did last weekend! Clearly not much. LOL. We haven’t got the tree up yet, but I’m hoping to put it up soon. You’ve inspired me to do some potato printing with the kids, too. I can’t remember the last time I did that!

  2. We put our decorations up on Saturday too! Was great fun as my 3yr old can actually help a bit now rather than destroy it, unlike the 10-month-old who pulled the tinsel off within the first 5 minutes of it being up!

    • Oh I don’t miss those days of putting the Christmas tree back together over and over again!!

  3. Looks like you had a lovely weekend getting ready for christmas 🙂 love the potato printing too – now that takes me back to my childhood 40 years ago.
    Love Bec 🙂

    • Were very excited for Christmas this year, so many lovely things happening. Yeah simple crafts are lots of fun for the kids aren’t they!
