They are also very clever at arty stuff like design and photography, that sort of thing. So we thought we might as well use them and their ability behind the camera to get some family shots of us to send home to the grandparents and great-grandparents.
*Please note the majority of the photos shown in this post are c/o our friendly Swiss friends and their very nice camera, although I would love to credit the photos to myself, that would be lying...
I am realising more and more that I have two little guys who are hilarious!
And the official photo:
Other spots on our hit list for the day were seeing the Oxford St Christmas Lights, visiting Carnaby Street (for the Swiss shoppers) and taking the boys to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. It ended up being a dry yet cold-as-a-cold-thing day but we declined public transport and decided to walk and take in the sights in between our numerous destinations.
Luca loves to go on 'Big Adventures' which are basically any outings that involve leaving the house. And it's always so much fun to go out and discover things with our children. They open our eyes to see so much more than we would ever normally notice and make us join them in flying like an aeroplane down the street.
You need to have no shame being a parent!
Goodness and Loving Kindness in a cup.
And how convenient that they have a 'Santa Land' there! Luca called the fair "My Playground" and couldn't believe all the people who were also at 'his playground'...
Although there were crowds and crowds of people wherever we went throughout the day, everyone seemed to be in good cheer and this helped make the day extra special. I know it sounds a bit cliché but I like to think that the Christmas season really does help to bring peace and joy into people's lives instead of worry and stress.
I hope you also are feeling peace and joy in your heart and in your home over this Christmas time.
