Christmas 2007

As has become the custom, the kids leave a small tot and a mince pie by the fire for Santa Claus, along with some carrots for Rudolph & friends.
Following a quick pose for the camera, all three are off to bed, PDQ.
The next morning, stocking presents are opened in bed, accompanied by an early morning cuppa and a restorative biscuit.
Following which, Pinky & Perky charge downstairs to check that the big bloke in the red tunic has left them all they desired.

School Nativity Play

A real treat this year as Rosie got a big part. After her friend Shona called in sick Rosie stepped in to 'save the day' (according to one of her teachers) when she appeared in the role of Mary holding onto baby Jesus. Sometimes upside down.

Thomas meantime played the role of one of the many small stars, dancing around Giant Star.

The whole company put on a great production, which they evidently enjoyed as much as the audience of admiring parents.

Christingles At Flecknoe 2007

St Mark's Church, Flecknoe was once again the host to the Christingle Service. The service was well attended, and the choir from Leamington Hastings School sung a sung for everyone (very quietly!)

Advent Service

Willoughby Church was the venue for Rosie's first public perfomance with the Grandborough Choir.
The congrgation were entertained by a wonderful selection of traditional Christmas songs.
The whole troop were well turned out in their signature red costumes, and posed for the camera after the performance.
