Every year our town holds an advent fayre and torchlight procession on the last Saturday in November and the Christmas lights are officially switched on. This year was a pretty cold affair so we needed to wrap up warm before we headed out. Here are the highlights:
Beanster and Moo wanted to visit Mrs Claus so Beanster wrote a thank you note to give to her because Mrs Claus always gives a present.
We looked at the window displays before looking at the stalls.
The girls had a go on the rides. Moo has not previously been a fan but she enjoyed herself today.
We had a break for lunch and Beanster looked at clothing patterns in one of our shops.
Later we headed out to the torchlight procession. The procession goes up and down the High Street then stops at the Cross for speeches, carol singing and the Christmas tree lights are switched on.
On Sunday we headed out to the cinema to see the new Frozen film with cousin H and uncle G. The girls dressed for the occasion.
We enjoyed the film and also building the Olaf Lego set we were given as a free gift. Beanster did well following the instructions, mostly managing it herself.
Other activities this weekend included an ice cube melting experiment (to be finished tomorrow), painting and sticking.
