December 2010

December is such a crazy busy month. Everything is finishing up, everyone is having a christmas party. Ben and Seth finished up at Stretton college, as they were moving to John Paul College the next year. They were sad to leave their friends.

Hayden finished his first year of school. He had a great time in Prep with a great teacher, Meagan Steele and made lots of friends in his class. The Prep Christmas party had a little concert for the parents and some yummy food. Check out Haydens dance moves!

Josh tagged along for the Prep party. He had a accident riding to school the day before. He had to get his chin glued back together and had lots of grazes on his arms and legs. He was more then happy to have some of the party food!

The kids all got into making things for presents this year, I was really proud of their genorosity. Ben spent all his pocket money on presents and then had no money left for the rest of the holidays. Josh was so thrilled with the toffees he made. We burnt the first batch but the second one turned out great.

Christmas was exciting. Our tradition on Christmas Eve is to read the nativity story, put out our stockings for Santa (and carrots for the reindeer) then walk down to the christmas lights which are just round the corner. In the morning the boys look in their stocking to see what Santa brought them.

We had Marks family over for lunch this year. So we made the table settings look really special.

I love Christmas, but I must admit its a relief when its all done and dusted!
