Each year for the past 57 years our Meyer store has decorated their store windows for Christmas. This tradition inspired us to join the T family for a trip into town today to see the new windows.
This year I also decided to make more use of the community and grow a 'science of relations' as Charlotte Mason puts it. Our morning started early with a trip trip into Melbourne central with a short walk to Meyer. This years theme is on the book: Russell's Christmas Magic by Rob Scotton.

After exploring and enjoying the widows we took the lift upstairs in hopes of going for a ride on the Meyer Christmas train. Unfortunately two of the children had grown to tall for this experience and after a deep sense of disappointment we went looking for the miniature railway display.

Gingerbread Village by Epicure, to raise funds for the Children's Hospital. (You can view the Gingerbread Village at the City Gallery 90 Swanston Street, Melbourne.)
Melbourne City Square for a picnic morning tea, a talk to the elves, a nativity story and a maize to find the reindeer.
From here we made our way to Melbourne Museum for a picnic lunch and explore but more of that tomorrow.
