oh I LOVE Christmas...

Like everyone it's been a fun and busy few weeks....

  • last of the presents bought and wrapped

  • Staff Christmas party - ummmmmm one to many champers! But you get that!

  • Photos with Santa at David Jones - Lola did sit on his knee but didn't look overly happy. LOL! But at least we got a photo, the little boy in front of us just wouldn't look at the camera or Santa!

  • We are all on holidays - YAY, YAY, YAY!

  • Had early Christmas with the Corbett family - everyone was very spoilt, I have lots of cash for the sales, the girls got zhu zhu pets, dolls, a beautiful wooden fairy house... and that's just the beginning!

  • Off to Gero for a week - my family for Christmas this year. Poppy is counting down the days, she ADORES her older cousins.

  • I did rush my Christmas cards but at least I got them done! I do love the pic of the girls!

I really am hoping to do some scrapping in January....I have lots to catch up on!

To anyone who still actually reads this - more of a family record than a scrapping blog at the moment, wishing you a Merry and safe Christmas!

Kindy is officially over for Poppy. She has had such a LOVELY bunch of kids in her class and the most divine teachers! We really are so so happy with her start to school! The class did a gorgeous little "concert" for the families and Poppy even had to introduce one of the songs!

She was great and I heard she helped one or two nervous boys during the rehersals!Gorgeous girl! We also had a lovely get together for all the families from the class at a park, Santa came, lots of laughs! Like I said a really lovely bunch of people. I wonder who will be in her class next year?
A quick Christmas craft idea...a paper plate wreath. I LOVE paper plates and brown bags for kids craft! With this one you simply cut the centre out, paint it green and add your choice of decorations, stickers, glitter. I think a bow in the centre at the bottom would finish it off nicely!

More kids crafts to follow as we are now on holidays I think Poppy will want to keep busy!

I can't believe this little blossom is FIVE years old! I know people always say it but where has the time gone? There was ALOT of cake this year! Cupcakes for kindy, a cake on the day and a cake for her "hula" party on the weekend!She loved her pressies - spoilt as always! So I have been busy with the girls parties and cakes! Busy with lots happening at work. I have a new contract for next year - exactly what I was hoping for which is wonderful! Geeze we might even have a little money next year! School has build a brand new Early Learning Centre and I was lucky enough to be able to do lots of ordering of lovely new equipment! That is a dream come true! Christmas is coming and I'm pretty much organised - just need to do the wrapping! YAY!
