Lots of photos to show you.

Meet my sugar & spice mice, i have been working on these for a while now and are sooo pleased with how they've turned out. They look yummy enough to eat, i wouldn't though, they're a little crunchy lol available on Mollycupcakes and will be staying there for the new year.

A couple of weekends ago, little Granny came over and we all went out to the Dickens festival and look it snowed lol well not real snow, more like bubbles and foam really. But it looked good and the girls loved it.

The streets of Rochester was filled with people dressed up, dancing, singing and selling all sorts of food, crafts and drinks.

In the castle grounds there was a fun fair and the girls went on lots. A big yellow bus lol lots of fun.

Hook a duck yeay! well done girls.

More fun on some cars and then the lady bugs. It was bitterly cold by the time we walked home and our noses where pink. But we all had a fab time, well worth wrapping up warm and walking down the town for. And bless little Granny she'd never been before and really enjoyed it.
This Saturday just gone was the cupcakes Christmas fete at their playgroup. Poor Daddy was feeling very poorly and i didn't feel the best, (flaming colds) but was keeping going because of the fact Ben had walked down the town that morning to collect my ring with me and asked me to marry him again in our pretty little park called the Vines. Could he get any more perfect? So i was floating around all day as happy as can be lol
So when 2.15 came, we wrapped up and set off up the road to Meadows playgroup. It was very busy and hot. Lots of different stalls with crafts to buy, make and do. Face painting, cake stall and lots of other games.

Granny got stuck in to the unwrap a bottle game lol don't worry we didn't have to carry her home, she saving her bottle of red for boxing day, we're going to make a mulled out of it. Yummy.

Jade won beauty products on the raffle and picked out one of my winning tickets straight after lol yeay! she's my lucky charm lol Thanks sweetie.
We all ate lots of cake, drank mulled wine and had to much sweet stuff (well the cupcakes did lol) a little too sugared up when we got home hehe!
But all in all it was a good couple of hours fun. I hope they raised lots of money, it's a fabulous little playgroup and real home from home for the cupcakes.
I took them both off to their last day before the Christmas break and their party today at playgroup. No photos on the camera, never know weather it's ok to take them now or not, silly laws! But did get a couple on my phone, so maybe Ben can put them on here sometime.
That big red Santa turned up at the end of their party and gave all the children teddies. Daisy was beside herself with happiness, when he walked in lol very cute. Molly on the other kept her distance, being the shy one of our cupcakes. Giving him only a smile and little wave. These days are ones to treasure and will be kept deep in my heart forever.
Thank you to all the staff at the Meadows playgroup, you've made the being of the Christmas break very special x
All enjoy a lovely weekend and thank you for Ben and i for all the kind well wishes. You are all such a lovely bunch.
Hugs for each and every one of you.
