Film Premier

There has been great excitement in our house this week.  Josh and friends made a film over the summer.

As director and camera man, Josh has been arranging a premier night to share their hard work with his Explorer Scout unit and other units in our area.

The dress code was formal (as it should be for a premier) and they even had a red carpet.

It also gave Jacob an opportunity to raise some more funds for his Japan Jamboree trip.  Jacob sold popcorn and pix & mix before and during the interval.

A great evening was had by all and Jacob raised £50 for his trip.  Here's a link to the film trailer if you would like a sneak peak, before its BAFTA nomination!! The Kettle is on its way

In other activity at Cheneycraft base camp, I have been making Christmas cards to ensure I can send a handmade card to each of my Christmas Card list friends.  I have 27 more to make, which I have spread out over the next three weeks.  Here's a sneak peak at the ones from this week.

I have also been preparing for the start of Autumn and the first thing was to change my seasonal decoration.

Andy has been harvesting the late crop from the vegetable patch and we have a great stock of potatoes, onions and beetroot.  We even have runner beans still growing, as it is still very mild here.

This week's bible verse for inspiration is a good reminder in all the business that follows the return to school and the approach of Christmas and all its festivities. (I know that's twice I've mentioned Christmas in October):

It is the Lord your God you must follow, 
and him you must revere. 
Keep his commands and obey him; 
serve him and hold fast to him.
Deuteronomy 13:4

Our prayer as a family this week is for all those who find themselves without the warmth and comfort of a secure roof over their heads as the weather turns.  

With God's blessings from my family to yours,

Jo x
