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!

Galgorm fairy trail with the Ladds

We had a groupon offer for the Fairy Trail at Galgorm Castle. We went with Alan and Louise and the boys. We were lucky we got such a lovely sunny and dry day. It was freezing though! We spent a good part of the afternoon wandering through the forest, solving riddles, reading little poems and knocking on fairy doors. We all loved it! Lee asked Amy half way through the day if she was having fun and she said very softly, 'yes, but I'm very scared'. A few notices said that we should stick to the paths because trolls live in the woods and would eat any children straying off and venturing in to the woods!
We had nursery Ted home for the weekend, so of course, he had to come along too!

Riddle me this!

We went on to Gillies at Galgorm for a drink while we waited for the Indian to open. We had our dinner at the restaurant and popped in to nana and granda's house for a mini visit before heading home to put the kids to bed. Tom fell asleep immediately as we left Ballymena.
