With Mary and Joseph
and his fellow Kings
How cute, saying The Lord's Prayer
I truly love it when a visit to Father Christmas is magical, where you can see a lot of time, effort and thought has gone into it. This afternoon we'd booked a trip to see him at Beetham Nurseries. We were greeted at the entrance by 'Mary Christmas' who was dressed in all her finery! She greeted Charlie and Courtney by name and handed some sleigh bells to Charlie to ring on our way down to zigzag path to see Father Christmas.
Father Christmas peered out of his caravan when he heard us and made such a fuss as they climbed the stairs. Inside, just by Father Christmas's chair there was a long blanket covered bench set up for us to sit on, Sylvia and Hughie came with us and there was plenty of room for them to stand too. In the corner there was a nice Christmas Tree and then nice decorative touches including oil lamps! Father Christmas spent quite some time with each of them, asking them lots of questions. Courtney was a little apprehensive at first but he soon won her round! By the time it came to gift time you could see they were both totally enchanted. We have had some really nice Father Christmas experiences but I felt this one was very personal, you can see by this photo how much they both enjoyed the experience. (and I am a very happy Mummy, I adore this photo!)
