The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

What’s the story?

What’s the Story? is a link up with fellow bloggers where you talk about a photo of your own, so I thought I’d give it a go.

My What’s the Story? is Jack’s first visit to Santa. After waiting till he was 15 months for Jack’s first steps he was raring to go when we went to Lincoln Christmas market a few weeks ago. We paid a visit to Clarkes to get him some new shoes and then let him loose on the streets of Lincoln, on reins of course.

We strolled round the market, well my fiance and mum did I spent most of the time trying to steer my toddler and being completely unsuccessful. We ate roasted chestnuts next to the castle and treated ourselves to some hot chocolate and a carton of juice for Jack, we had heard that because of the high winds that day Santa’s grotto wasn’t open but Santa himself was wondering around the market and we set out to find him.

After removing Jack from behind several stalls and stopping a million times for him to try and give his bear Brewer to random people we finally found Santa. I don’t think Jack was very impressed with this strange old man in a red suit and even less impressed when Santa asked his Grandma if she had been naughty :O.

Christmas crafts

Jack and I love to craft but it can be tricky with a 16 month old. I am restricted to things he either can’t eat or isn’t harmful if he does. So today we made some Christmas cards for aunties and uncles, nanny and grandad and grandma.

Mummy folded the card and drew some Christmassy images on an a3 piece of paper and Jack colored them in. Then Mummy cut them out and stuck them to the front of the cards. Simple enough and no mess.

What other Christmas crafts can we do? We made salt dough foot prints for Mother’s Day and hand print paintings for Daddy’s birthday.

Ideas on a virtual postcard please 🙂
