And we were singing, Hymns and arias...

Even being 8 months pregnant did not get Auntie Jan out of her turn for cooking Christmas dinner this year! And she did a very good job of it (with the help of Uncle Mike!)
Judging by the face he's making, though, Will may have eaten too many sprouts...
Even though Hannah, Thomas & Will have been in trouble almost every day this year, Father Christmas still was kind enough to visit our house last night!
Thomas was chuffed to bits with his new Star Wars Lego X-Wing Fighter (and Daddy is quite excited, too!)
Hannah is planning to build a lamp from her Magnext kit, to allow her to read in bed.
And Will is going to help Bob the Builder fix it wherenever he possibly can...

Can't remember who gave us this marble run when Hannah was little, but it's seen a huge amount of use as each of the children has grown up. It's Will's turn now to ask for it at every opportunity, and then to proceed to scatter marbles in every possible direction around the house.

We made the most of an unexpected sunny day and headed on a 'big-family-trip' to St. Fagans, with Nanny and Grumpy, Uncle Mike, Auntie Jan, James and Bethan.
The play area called first...
Then the bakery...
Then, running around playing Star Wars...
The cow's bottom provided lots of laughs!
But we did eventually manage to do the 'history thing' and visit the castle and some of the houses!

We've already mentioned how important safety is to our children. Well, they're still at it, now wearing crash helmets on the slide, too!
I think we'll need to see about buying Will a proper pair of Doc Martens with steel toe-caps, though!

The plan was for Hannah and Thomas to sleep outside in the garden tonight (in a tent, before anyone calls social services!)
The excitement was palpable as we put up the tent and brought in the books, magazines, sweets, etc...
Unfortunately, Daddy (who was sleeping in the kitchen by the door, in case of emergencies) was woken up at 11:30 that night by a Hannah who couldn't sleep. Which also woke up Thomas, who then couldn't sleep. So, everyone ended up in their own beds that night by midnight!
We took advantage of a sunny Saturday and headed up Garth Mountain today.
As seems to be becoming usual, the children left the oldies behind...
Some great views from the top.
And the opportunity for a family photograph, care of the timer on the camera!
We nearly got a wet Will, though - this photo shows him about to lose his balance and fall in a stream because he was waving so vigorously! Luckily, Ruth managed to catch him before he went splash!
