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

We all needed some fresh air, so we headed out to our local woods for a very small stomp.
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.
Next game to try was Cobra Paw. This is a very simple and quick game and another one we all loved.
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 *
