Me and Mine Project - November 2016

I'm a little bit late in writing this post but that's because we have had a jam packed November. We had a few special birthdays and we also had a last minute weekend away in Disneyland Paris.

November is a month that we are hit hard with birthdays. We have at least two a week. In fact one week we have 6 birthdays!!! On the 4th November it was my father in laws 70th birthday and the following day was my dad's 60th birthday. That was a pretty stressful weekend with 2 surprise parties and lots of family get togethers. 
Next up was my husbands birthday. We kept that quite low key seeing as we were going to Disneyland the following week. Immediately after our weekend away it was Ophelia's 1st birthday. We had a family tea party in the house to celebrate. She seemed pretty pleased with it all. I'm gutted as we didn't get any family pictures on her birthday.

In November we were also invited to the opening of winter wonderland in Cardiff. It was such a fun, festive evening. We all went ice-skating (except Ophelia). We went on lots of rides and of course ate and drank the yummy food and drink. Eva had an absolute ball. We definitely want to go back as it's such a lovely place to have some family time.

If you read my blog regularly you will know that we are a massive Disney loving family. I am the biggest kid of all when it comes to Mickey Mouse. We headed to Disneyland Paris for a quick festive weekend break with my sister in law and her husband. I won't talk too much about it as i'll be writing a blog post about our trip but we had a fantastic time. It was cold but it was worth it to see Eva's face. We saw lots of the parades, shows and went on quite a few rides. Eva loved meeting Santa there and she talked his head off. 

It's a small world! Not sure why hubby and I are still smiling. This was about the 3rd go on it and the sing is rather repetitive lol!

We were also invited to meet Santa at Hamley's at the end of last month. I must admit he was one of the best Santa's i've ever seen, he must've been the real one. Ophelia is still not to sure about him but she's curious enough.

As you can see we've had a busy month as a family but a pretty good one. I am really looking forward to this month as my mum, stepdad, sisters, aunty, uncle and cousin are all coming back from Australia to spend Christmas with us. It'll be our first one together in 8 years. I'm sure i'll have lots of pictures to share.

Together this month we've loved:
Pizza (we seem to have eaten a lot if it)
Story time
Playing peekaboo
Santa and all things Christmas
