They are in the parade every year drilling with thier squashes...but I have no idea who they are - or why they are doing it.
The big event of the weekend was Finlay's birthday - he reached the ripe old age of 4 on Sunday.
For his birthday he received roller skates. He insisted on skating all the way into town for his birthday treat which was a carriage ride around town to see all the Christmas lights. It was a lovely clear crisp evening and we had a great driver who took us on an extra detour to see some particularly well decorated houses.
And of course I exploited my talents in cake decorating to make him a cake. (Its a banana cake).
