Merry Christmas to all! We've been very busy enjoying all of the good things about the festive season. The kids have loved counting down the days on the advent tree.
I have not had much of a chance to do any Christmas crafting since Maddie arrived (lots of patting and rocking and feeding but no crafting LOL!) At least I finally finished these little kangaroos (out of the Softies pattern book by "My Little Mochi") These are going to live in London with my niece and nephew.
On Tuesday night we were in the Lobethal Live Nativity again. This has become an annual event (both Dan and Maddie have been baby Jesus and Hannah has been an angel every year since Dan was born) I love that this is something we can do to really celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. It was extra special this year to have a cast full of friends and favourite ex-students! Hannah even had one of her kindy friends as another little angel. Daniel was delighted to be a shepherd with my friend Nic, and even more excited when he got to hold a sheep and a stick!!!
Madeline slept through the first performance and only got a bit wriggly for the second. At just 3 weeks of age she was one of the youngest baby Jesus they had this year!
Wednesday night was the Lobethal Pageant. The kids and I went on the back of the kindy float! So much fun and we saw so many people we knew! I think this might become another Christmas tradition!
Now there is not much left to do; a few presents to wrap, a trampoline to assemble; a pudding to defrost...I think a nice glass of red and a bit of chill out time is in order. Whoever you are, where ever you are, we wish you peace and happiness this Christmas.
