yesterday we went to get our christmas tree.
there were plenty of trees to chose from
dancing in the trees
there really were lots of trees to chose from
the tree was finally chosen
this year the girls also did the sawing
here’s a video of our feeble sawing (enjoy bigger here). Kezia (aged 4) did the videoing.
the mighty beast was felled
we poked it through the tree wrapping netter thing (cost Â£1, but all part of the fun)
it’s always fun pulling the stretchy netting off
then it was in to the house – here’s jane dancing the light fantastic. look at the sparks from her feet.
and the final product
this was my first mince pie of xmas 2006. i declared to the chef that “i normally find mince pies quite discusting, but these are ok”.
jane, my lovely wife, who was sitting next to me, said “what are you saying about the mince pies i make?”. oooops.
they looked like volauvents (i’m sure i didn’t spell that correctly)
