Christmas Cake. Finally ... I got around to marinating the fruit for our Christmas cake. The brats loved helping me mix the fruits together although Hannah was a bit confused as to why she couldn't eat it up as she stirred. Once the fruit had been transferred to a ceramic bowl for the brandy she took the big mixing bowl and was trying to sit in it - I think she might have cat tendencies ... she also tries to sit on the presents that are under the tree and loves to play "Hannah is hiding down in the box ...". Steps are still going well so I must officially apologise to anyone who was hoping to pick up one slightly used but absolutely gorgeous toddler on ebay - it is pretty much walking (albeit a wonky walk) - so she is OFF the market!
