It Was A Different Weekend

 

 

Most definitely , and a fun one to . Myself and all the girls in the family went to a lovely Christmas craft show on Saturday and had fun  looking , oohing and aweing over all the lovely hand made crafts and yummy treats they had there . Most of us ended  up buying lovely home made  jams and tea cakes  to have over the holidays .

These are just some of the yummy cakes I got  the rest are in the freezer lol !  Papa… why is there a lemon cake missing here ? …. um don't know as he says with a mouth full lol !

We spent a good four hours at the craft show as it was in a huge high school  through out the halls , the gymnasium   and part of the cafeteria the other part was for sitting and stopping for a drink and something to eat . We all had a nice time . Whilst I was gone Papa was busy putting up the tree we use for out side and the lights and decorating the outside of the front of the house  . We were surprised when we pulled in the driveway to see it all looking pretty !

Looks even prettier at night will share those photos later lol .

Then Sunday the family went for a nice Christmas brunch at the Elm Hurst Inn a wonderful old huge  Victorian mansion  . The people there are soo nice and the food is amazing all you can eat buffet of every kind of food you can think of  Turkey , roast beef , potato's , salads of all sorts  , breakfast foods , fruits of every kind and the desert tables are amazing   with chocolate fountains  and all kinds of goodies tea coffee poured  before you call for more  plates removed as soon as you are done and ready to go up for more to get another fresh plate  , the service is fast and amazing a

 StarStarStarStar Star place indeed !

The Christmas decorations there were beautiful and a huge tree in the foyer waiting room all done so beautifully so we took the time before we had our private party/family  room to take photos of us all in front of the tree . Papa took our photos of the family and his dad  also took photos   . It was a lovely time and stuffed we all were I am still full  , places like that with all that food one has to pace them selves lol and take time to chat and giggle as we all did !   It was a lovely weekend . I will share photos of it all  once Papa has loaded them in his computer  and send them over to my computer .

But I did get out side early in the  mornings as we have had been getting hard frosts to take photos . So I will share a few of them for now .

I could spend hours out there taking frost photos as it looks so different and interesting on everything it forms to ! But the sun rises which I like and it still holds quite a bit of heat and so melts it all  .

Those pre-Christmas weekends with craft shows to go to are such fun, aren't they. And always some baking to buy. Ate at the Elm Hurst a couple of times; great place. And nice frost pictures!

Sounds like a wonderful time. And those desserts...oh my gosh...I wouldn't mind having some of those stashed in my freezer! LOL... Beautiful photographs, as always. Have a lovely Monday.

I love photos of frost on plants and leaves. These are wonderful. What is Miggs wanting for Christmas? I can't believe how he poses for you.

That sounds like a great weekend. Love those frosty photos. This morning we are getting ice rain, enough so that it looks wet but it is a thin coating of ice everywhere. Welcome to December.

Nice weekend for you. I have yet to venture out to look for frost pics although I often walk ~9 o'clock.
