We put our decorations up on 1st December.
We go to Uncle Willies Christmas Party which is a magical place for children.
I once helped run these parties (They are a Rotaract - "Junior Rotary" fundraising project) for 5 years (still do on the odd night they are short staffed) and now we have the privilege of taking our son. He is 9 but still firmly believes in Santa. It is so special for him. The party has the same format every year so he anticipates what will come next. I take so many photos every year that it takes a few double spreads to scrap them all! This year I made a point of getting in front of the camera instead of being behind it all the time and documenting our activities. I am about 3 or 4 years of Xmas photos behind...so I decided to get cracking with this years lot first and work backwards.
While waiting for our tractor trip to the castle we took some crazy hat shots for entertainment.
When you get to the castle, you pick your spot for the night and go into the arena to throw straw.
Straw throwing is a big deal at this party! It warrants 2 pages!
I have not quite finished this last page yet, but have run out of steam...I still have Christmas day to scrap, but that is only one double page this year I think...The photos still need to be printed...that's tomorrows job.
