To Ho Ho or not Ho Ho… that is the question!?!?

With the littlies growing up and starting to ask questions about a certain man in a red suit there has been a bit a discussion recently in our house.

The question?  To Santa or not to Santa?

I have to say it never crossed my mind not to Santa! I always loved the “magic” that it brought! The imagination and excitement it inspires. Yes there’s a reason for the reason and that never forgotten in the fun!

Jenna’s prayer last night: “thank you God for Jesus and His birthday at Christmas and that father Christmas can come celebrate!”.

Weighing up in the other corner is honesty, focusing on the reason for the reason only and never lying to your children.

And there we have it a stalemate! What are your views? What do you tell your kids? How do you do Santa aka the man in red!

Have you say in the poll or leave me you thoughts in the comments section!

Sun, smiles and snacks

Every now and again you one of those almost perfect days!! Sunday was one of those!

We started off at a social event at church with Magic Martin who kept the kids entertained whilst the oldies sat back with a cuppa and some yummy cakes. Which Tamsin slept through most of – my little angel!

Which was then followed by a picnic on the side of the Chess River in Croxley Green. Lovely friends, with lovely children, SUNSHINE, water, food and laughs! Seriously what more could you want!

The kids spent 99.9% of the time playing in the river with nets whilst the wrinklies lay back in the shade. With the occasional mad dash to rescue Carter who was wandering away following dogs!



BLISS!!! Why can’t every day be this good! Great idea Joneses!
