My (and Amy's) first cross country

We all (except for Tom, he's too little) did the Mallusk cross country on Sunday.
Amy did the primary school 800m and did so well! I did the 5.5k and Lee did the 8k. It was a very cold and windy and drizzly day. I didn't warm up even while running. I nearly spilled a whole cup of tea over myself from shivering so badly after the race. Thomas drank what was left of it when I got back to the car. Hmph.
It was a fun afternoon though. Who would have thought I'd be running in cross country races? 
I ran alongside Tiff and Louise and it was great having the company and it helped keep me going.
I'll never be fast, but it's been fun.

Santa at Glenarm

Magical as always! The children didn't need us on the carousel rides, or for us to be in the photo with Father Christmas! They're so big and brave now.

The gingerbread house!

I assembled the house while the kids were in school and after picking Amy up they all had a go at decorating and eating all the sweets.
Amy was concerned about Daisy eating too many sweets. I think they did a pretty good job!
