The councils are dusting off the tinsel and putting them up on street poles and the junk mail is starting to arrive thick and fast.
But we have a few too many things to do before the Christmas celebrations can commence.
There is our first Dance Concert. Something that I never expected to be so time consuming. Extra rehearsals, make up nights, photo nights, full dress rehearsal, costume fittings and packing bags of hairspray, hair nets, bobby pins and shoe paint. I am now a Ballet Mum.
Once I get through this I would like to think I will have a few days rest, but that is not to be, as the Fairy Princess Party will be held less than 48 hours afterwards. This is the party where I wasn't sure how many kids to invite, well, the list just took over and even with limited invitations there are 50 people invited. 50 - Holy FairyCakes Harmony - you will be pleased to know that I have accepted the kindest offer ever for the cake to be made, to prevent serving up anything like my Echidna to a room full of three year olds and parents I have barely met.
I have also been using Pinterest to get all my ideas for the girls' parties and couldn't help falling in love with these dresses, so I sent the image to Granny Huey and she is organising one each for the girls to wear. I am hoping they will arrive in time for the local Carols by Candlelight and a few other Christmas events we have planned.
|I am considering giving these a go too. Eating them I mean. yum.|
We also have school orientations and preparations for Popps. How ready is she for school? So so ready. I thought I was too.
