That is such a sweet shot.
Bill Phillips: They are lovely boys. Mind as their granddad I may be a bit biased
Ils sont très mignons avec leur bonnet de Père Noël.
Bill Phillips: Although I am biased I thought they looked lovely

Santa has 5 fingers and a thumb...I newer noticed that before!
Bill Phillips: I think that may be an optical illusion Ray grin
Oh, how wonderful, Bill!
Bill Phillips: This was at the Grotto we did for the switch on of the lights. Helen got there just before it opened so that Joseph could see Santa. Like last time he enjoyed playing with the crib that was set up...moving the animals around to where he thought they should be.

Well captured, their expressions are priceless
Bill Phillips: Thanks Chris. It was nice that Joseph was able to enjoy being Santa

They are still young enough of course to be taken in by all the "magic" of Christmas. I have to say that I've done very well in ignoring just about everything to do with Christmas although I have enjoyed a few carol concerts (i'm a regular church-goer; I go regularly once a year).
Bill Phillips: I have done a carol concert and have sung a few with a mate's little singing group. With the sleigh as well Christmas is something I can't ignore grin

The magic still lasts for them, Bill
Bill Phillips: It is what it is all about. I did Santa at a primary School the other day and the response from the children (in a deprived area) was wonderful. Lovely polite children, huge smiles and lots of hugs for Santa. It has made my Christmas

... and that handsome Santa is not grandpa Bill?
Bill Phillips: No...I would have been instantly recognised. That is my good friend and fellow Lion Dave

What an adorable picture this is, Bill. I love the way Ted is looking at Joseph. I can imagine how difficult it is to explain "Santa"...
Bill Phillips: I am not sure what Joseph thinks about Santa but Ted is well into it! The pleasing thing was that Joseph was OK with this, indeed he was last year too. We are lucky that we can take him in just before they start so that it is quiet
What a lovely picture of your two young fellows, the way ted is looking at Joseph is priceless. Thanks for the carol, one of my favourites, I have already sung it several times this year at our church.
Bill Phillips: I got lucky! I have sung it once ...but then I have only been to one carol concert. It has long been my favourite

Little darlings ...aren’t they.
Bill Phillips: They are adorable. Ted can be a bit of a lad sometimes but he is still lovely. Joseph is just very very special

Wonderful childhood memories. In the bleak midwinter is a great carol.
Bill Phillips: The light was awful but it is one to keep! I love in the bleak mid winter. The last verse always brings a lump to my throat even though I am a non believer!
Oh a wonderful photo!
Love the music!
Bill Phillips: The photo ws lucky as I had to be quick! My favourite carol.
two very handsome grandchildren Bill... they grow up so fast...
Merry Christmas to you and yours....petersmile
Bill Phillips: They do Peter. A very happy Christmas to you too
One for the photo album. The boys look sweet and Santa have special, warm eyes.
Bill Phillips: Santa is a good friend of mine and he is a really nice bloke
The lads look a little knowing smile Lovely carol.
You deserve to be proud of this pair
