Christmas Market.

The Christmas Market.

Granny and I got up early to go to the Christmas market at Marion.
What a lot of Christmas things there were. I probably won't say a lot because there are quite a lot of pictures.
When you see all the goodies you will know why I had a Great time.
These are some of the snow men that Granny made last week.

There was a whole table of Santa Pinata's. I was trying to make friends because I know they had lots of lollies inside them.
There was a second hand book stall, Granny said" to pass the time, read a book."
Well look at the book beside me, I picked it up and I wasn't game to turn the first page. It looked far too scary for me. Especially at a Christmas market.
 Now this Santa sack looks just the right size for me. I told Granny I need my own sack. Not just added on to the Grand kids sack. 
This lady had wonderful quilts and stitchery's. 
 It even says Love your Family. Well I do love my family very much ... hmmmm most of the time.
Now we are getting serious. A trader outside had the most amazing STRAWBERRY'S
He said I could taste as many as I wanted. Well Granny felt as though she needed to buy several punnets  to give to neighbours, because I ate so many. They were the most delicious strawberry's Granny had every tasted. 
There was a table that looked just like a Forrest. It was full of Christmas trees. This is just a few.
 The lady that painted this little reindeer is a special friend of Granny's. She paints really well. 
 On her stall I found this sign.It says Grandparents fill the world with LOVE.
I do believe that, don't you.
There was cake
Christmas ornaments.
Plus biscuits made like Christmas trees. 
On the same stall there were Reindeer. They look real, I hope they taste like chocolate. 
Plus little plum Puddings, YUM YUM... 
Then Santa's little helper handed out lollies. I made sure I made friends with him. He even gave me the biggest cuddle.
I felt very important in the Helpers arms. Can you see me waving to every one.

Well Granny said only a light supper tonight, because she thought I might get a tummy ache, because I had tasted so many things.
Just a half a slice of toast, peanut butter and honey.
Then Off to bed. I am getting out a Christmas book that tells about the very First Christmas to read tonight.

See you all next week.

  3. Enjoy your nativity story Wilbur, I hope you helped granny today at the market...x

  4. Hi Wilbur,

    What a great day you and Granny had and I bet the two of you were very tired when you finally came home.

    Those strawberries look so yummy, we eat lots of strawberries here.

    Have a fun day and get plenty of rest.

    Prudence ♥

  6. Hi Wilbur,
    WOW! There were so many Christmassy things it was like visiting the North Pole. We loved seeing all of the photos and we're glad you and granny had so much fun. The things we like best about the holidays is all of the tasty treats. Here at our house our mom starts baking and making candies three weeks before Christmas. The house smells so good and there are always spoons to lick and samples of cookies and fudge to be taste tested. We're the offical taste testers so there are nights where we only get half a slice of toast with peanut better and honey for our supper. Tell granny we think her snowmen are wonderful.

  7. Oh that looks like lots of fun, and so many yummy things too!

    About the book though, it's very interesting, you should google it (if, in fact, it's about the real Doomsday (Domesday) Book) In 1086 William The Conqueror demanded that a survey was done of England and Wales (his kingdom at the time) to find out all about how many people there were, what was on the land, how much land was worth and so on. When LT was little and at infant school, she was involved in a new project to celebrate 900 years since the original book, and the BBC got school children around the country to carry out an updated survey. As part of it she got to go to the waterworks, the fire station and the army barracks, just to find out what they did and how many people were there. It was all entered onto the original BBC Basic computers and collated by the BBC.

  8. Wilbur,I am so glad you had a good time. I used to have a stall at that market a few years back,selling Christening gowns. I had forgotten about there being a Christmas market it would have been fun to go. Maybe next year. Merry Christmas. xx

  9. Ah! A Santa full of lollies now that's my sort of Santa .....half a toast, peanut paste & honey will never fill up a growing bear .... You must tell Grannie next time 2 toasts at least!

  10. Such goodies! My mouth is now watering, seriously, just looking at the sweets, and the strawberries. Looks like a fabulous place to visit for the holidays.

  11. Hi Wilbur and Kay,

    The Christmas market looks fun and so glad you had a great time. Thanks for showing your photos.

    Happy week

  12. Hi Wilbur,

    It certainly appears to me that you had a very busy day! Lots of goodies to look at and to sample. I think your granny was right to suggest a light supper for you. Thanks for the tour!


  13. What wonderful photos Wilbur. The annual Christmas craft fairs are something I miss a great deal about Canada, where I'm from. They just don't seem to do them in the part of England where I live at the moment.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope your ready for Christmas!

  14. Dear Wilbur
    We haven't written for awhile 'cause Nana Kayzy's been so busy she forgot to let us use the computer! Getting old she is. Anyway, we're glad you enjoyed the market so much - we had fun looking at all those goodies too. Give Granny Kay a big hug for us, and Shirley sends a special hug to you (she's blushing now).
    A group hug from Kayzy's Critters :0)

  15. Oh my Wilbur, it seems that you and Granny had a fabulous time at the Christmas Market.
    And all that sweet stuff...mmm....I just wish I could have one of them.

    Hugs to you and Granny, Thea x

  16. My goodness, but those goodies look wonderful! I haven't tasted strawberries since summer and it's almost worth the heat to have those berries! Hugs to everyone!
    Abby sends her love!

  17. Hi Wilbur,
    You did a wonderful photos!!!!!
    I love Christmas and Christmas preparations too.
    I really liked the cookies in the shape of a Christmas tree.I'll try to do the same. If you have a recipe for this cookie will be happy to accept it as a gift.

  18. kiss to Wilbur. How does it behave him? it is good and it doesn't whims?
    For you a great embrace and so much happiness.

  19. We can certainly see why you had so much fun. So many wonderful things to look at and enjoy. Mama said looking at all those beautiful strawberries made her hungry for strawberry shortcake. She said we will have some as soon as the berries are in season.

    Granny's snowmen are so cute!!
