We braved the cold today in order to head outside and plant some daffodil bulbs which we'd been given for Christmas (thanks Auntie Mavis & Uncle John!) It was a full-team effort, with holes being dug everywhere!


All the bulbs were planted safely, but we may have been a bit late to enjoy them this Spring. Hopefully they'll stay nice and warm until 2010, though!


We also found a few new 'pets' while we were planting!

It's a cracker

Not wanting to do things by halves, Ruth managed to find the biggest Christmas cracker ever, this year! Nanny and Grumpy, Auntie Jan, Uncle Mike, James and Bethan joined us for Christmas dinner, and you can see we needed a lot of help to pull the cracker! We were worried that there was going to be a huge explosion when it popped!


After all the work of pulling the cracker, we had loads of delicious grub to keep us going for the rest of the day!

Party time

Uncle Tim, Auntie Abby, Chloe and Anya came to Cardiff just before Christmas to celebrate together. There was lots of games, presents, yummy food and silly photos!


Will, though, still hasn't worked out the difference between crackers that you eat and crackers that you pull!

Feeling sheepish

Tom appeared in his school Christmas concert this year as one of Little Bo Peep's naughty sheep.

Here he is returning back to the pen after being caught and told off!

Waiting for Christmas

It wasn't just Santa that Hannah and Thomas were waiting for this year. We were waiting for a new sofa to be delivered in December, and had already scrapped our old sofa to make room, so we had a week or so of sitting around on deck chairs in the house. It was like being at the beach!


As Hannah and Thomas discovered, if you have to sit on deck chairs, then you may as well make them as comfortable as possible!

Try as hard as he might, Will hasn't yet mastered the art of hanging Christmas decorations on the tree!


His technique of simply dropping the bauble onto the branch, just doesn't seem to work. He's very good at pulling the decorations off the tree, though...

Hannah Montana!


Let's just hope that Hannah doesn't get her singing ability from her Dad!
