Happy Valentines Weekend to everyone...
This is a vintage card from my collection that I found in a shop in Horncastle, a beautiful little town further inland. It makes me smile...That to me is what Valentines is all about, not the expensive gifts but a simple gesture letting someone know they are loved. This year we are having a quiet meal in that we are cooking together, that is all that is needed. My husband shows me he loves me everyday with his actions, he brings me flowers, chocolates or a magazine anyway... he will come in and say, "I saw this and thought of you".
I have finally made a start on the Christmas scrapbook, it was lovely looking back at the photos reminiscing about the wonderful things shared with our beautiful family.
Bertie was such fun to have whilst his parents were on honeymoon, here he is having a great time decorating the tree. I can remember having to redo parts of it when he went to bed, most of the baubles were at the bottom of the tree.
Here he is again with Granny decorating a biscuit at the Church Farm Museum. I remember him and Grandad choosing the biggest cakes in the tearoom and giggling together.
He had such fun meeting Father Christmas by the range in the kitchen at the museum, it was certainly warm next to the roaring fire.
There was an amazing trip on the steam railway, once again to visit Santa. This time with Wilbur in tow. The two cousins had a wonderful time together as they both love trains.
They had both eaten through their snacks before they had left the station.
They were both very keen to impress Santa with beautiful manners and behaviour, assuring him they had both been good boys.
They loved looking through the window at all the train sets which were on sale.
Christmas eve was the Church nativity which Lily and Daisy loved been part of.
I had to include at least one photo of the Frozen princess's, it really was a major part of the Christmas celebrations this year.
I have made a start and hope to finish it off at the weekend. I shall then put the remaining photos in albums. I still have the girls birthday pages to catch up on too. I wanted to get them finished because I know I will take such a lot of photos on holiday. I still have some packing to do and some documents to download. I have to sort out a little project to take with me for the long flight and a book would be prudent. The list seems to be getting longer by the minute.
I really would like to thank everyone for their comments, they really are appreciated and always make me smile. It is a lovely feeling to know that I am part of a blogging community and so I will leave you with this quote by Mother Teresa.
Let us always meet each other with a smile,
for the smile is the beginning of love.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentines weekend.
See you soon.
