Christmas Moments 2012

This is our Christmas 2012, captured in some of our favorite little moments:


Last time we visited Lincoln we had some beautiful Autumn sunshine, but our December visit was decidedly chillier! We had a lovely time with family, and Annabelle was very impressed by the Christmas lights in the historic city centre.

Family meal



We continued our travels to visit Grandma and Grandad in equally historic Stratford-upon-Avon (we pick our holiday spots well!) for some more family fun time.

Hotel biscuits!

Give her 2 minutes in any hotel room and she will find the biscuits!!

Loving her new toys

This photo should really be a video, but for the purposes of reading the caption, imagine a heavy Yorkshire accent (not our accent, just adopted for this!) as Annabelle squeezes her doll so hard and says “oooooh, I luv ya!”

"Luv ya!"

And that was our Christmas 2012!
