Me and Mine {December family portrait}

This is so last year {wink}.  Sigh. Better late than never eh?
With festive gatherings a plenty through December how could we not have managed a December family snapshot?  Our friend Kev snapped these for us at his New Years Eve gathering half an hour from the stroke of midnight when it became apparent E was a sneeze away from collapsing in a heap.

It’s been lovely taking part in the monthly Me and Mine challenge.

    Ahhh, it’s so lovely to see all of your photos together like that. I get so proud thinking of what we’ve all achieved and the lovely record we have of our year. x

    Abzi – I’m so glad Lucy inspired us all to take part :o)

    Josie – thanks (blush blush)

    Lucy – and it’s all down to you getting us all inspired. So pleased to hear Me and Mine is continuing into 2014

    Charlotte – it was funny when my friend emailed them through as I thought that one looked stage yet we’d simply been doing that family thing of an overexcited reaction for the sake of a toddler, not really aware he was snapping us

    Bren – so pleased you’ve liked keeping up with the ever changing face of E.

    Oh how gorgeous to see all the pictures together! I’m hoping to do something like that when I hit the one year anniversary.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
