Here's little Toby all dressed up to help Santa deliver the presents at our house. He's got his little elfin bear friend too. But before he does he's going on a picnic and because it's nearly Christmas he is going to eat chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate.
Share a bear, dolly or softie
Do you have a little someone who would like to come on the picnic today. Everyone is welcome. Just pop your details into Mr Linky and join in the fun.

I make these every year and use the recipe HERE. They are heaps of other beautiful biscuit recipes at this site and I find the Taste recipes work beautifully.
Allrecipes and taste delicious.

Not bears this month but dear little donkeys
Every year at Christmas time I send a present to the donkeys at the Diamond Creek Donkey Sanctuary which is just a few minutes from where I live. You can choose a gift from the donkey's Wishing Well. Many of these little donkeys have suffered much in their lives and I'm so grateful to the dedicated team who rescue them and ensure that for the rest of their lives they are treated with the kindness they deserve.
