This month it was my daughter's 9th birthday. Last year in the single digits! Just so hard to believe.
We went along to the Woodland Light Experience to explore the woods and look for fairies. We were supposed to go the week before but the poor munchkin was ill so it ended up being a birthday trip (thanks to the kind people who ran the event and let us change dates). The girls found a fair few magical creatures and they were in awe of the lights. There's something amazing about spending time with little people who believe wholeheartedly in magic. A perfect way to start the Christmas season.
