It's funny for me sometimes. Growing up in America, people came in from another state just next door, or a few came over for the holidays. Here, we come over from another country. Sometimes the trip is the same distance as the states, but with different languages and customs and time zones. Anyway....
Here's the show...
Monaco's annual Christmas Village/Fair...
|Kids in bubbles, love it.|
|E got to do a little craft project with an elf.|
|T got a little nervous up so high on the Ferris wheel.|
|But some cotton candy helped.|
|Ah, I feel better too.|
|It's not a Fair without a band of instrument wielding Santas.|
|Or hugging penguins.|
Next...Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London. Now that's a Christmas Fair!! Food, gifts stalls, rides, shows, you can spend days here and never tire of it.
|T's really gotten into the shooting games. Not a bad shot actually!|
Takes after his American Grandpa. :)
|This one is T and I in the front carriage. Wow! quite a coaster.|
Both of us had jelly legs afterward.
|Now it's a slightly, and I mean slightly, smaller one for E. |
That's us, front of the car again. And once again, jelly legs!!
|Being in such a small car with no real sides it was a bit scary.|
I was surprised E was considered big enough. And actually, she wanted
to go again. That's my girl!
|Entrance to the toy department...|
|Perfume anyone?? Geez, it feels like I'm on Canal Street NYC,|
|Ahhhhh, handbags. Nuf said. Moving on now.|
A little ice skating at the Natural History Museum...
Now for cousin time...
|Stairs can be so much fun!|
Merry Christmas...(Santa always knows where you are)
|That crazy Santa put a tiny orange in my stocking!|
|Oooh, stinky stickers.|
|Boys and trains...|
|...girls and princesses.|
And look at that, Santa even stopped by our Monaco place to drop off the big pressies....
And look who's already mastering their bikes...
