It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas …
We’ve sung carols last Thursday, we’ve made Christmas cards and this weekend we met up with our friends at Duke of York Square to celebrate Christmas in Chelsea.
And like last year the highlight of the day was the privilege of the horse and carriage ride.
But first we must meet the Elves – they run the show!
And off we went …
Clip clopping around Sloane Square and into the side streets
And down Pavilion Road
We’re very familiar with the streets but quite different seeing it from a different perspective. We were all curious at the sights.
Just checking the shops
It was a quick ride – thank you Duke of York Square!
But there were lots more to see. We needed to check out the Snow Globe in Sloane Square.
And voila! Is that not the cutest Snow Globe?!?!!?
There were penguins …
And then there was a giant pig.
We crossed over to the Duke of York Square and lots more decorations.
Sharing some wings with Fred.
And more Elves who told us that Father Christmas will soon be there.
And so we hung around (like the wreath in the background) for the last attraction of the day …
And finally Father Christmas arrived!
And before the weekend was over, we lit the second Advent candle …
Christmas is coming!
May’s comment: We are hurtling towards Christmas. Just over two weeks and so much more to do. We’ve sung carols, made Christmas cards, horse carriage ride … and starting to pack for our trip.
