Meeting Father Christmas......

This afternoon we took Sophie to Lanhydrock in the hope of seeing Father Christmas. (We missed him last year!).
When we entered the room we saw this lovely tree. Every year there is always such a great tree and whoever decorates it does a brilliant job.

To start with Father Christmas was having a tea break so we had a quick look around the gift shop but then when he arrived back I was quite impressed at how much he looked like the Father Christmas on all of the cards you can buy!  He had a really jolly face and the beard was his own and I can honestly say that he was the most convincing Father Christmas I have ever seen.
I am not sure what they were talking about but Sophie was really smiling and everyone behind me went ahhh!
In the little bag that you can see in the picture Father Christmas put a little fluffy toy of a badger and then put in a zip up packet of half size colouring pencils!  Two gifts instead of one.  We asked her what they had said and why he gave her two items and she said that it was just between her and Father Christmas.  I can only gather that she said something nice or kind (?) but I shall never know.........
