On Tuesday we spent time at the school. First we went to Connor's class to help make gingerbread houses. Michael helped Connor, and my Mum and I helped one of the special needs kids in his class. His name is Dominic and he is VERY special needs; he was a handful for the two of us but an absolute delight at the same time......such a sweet boy........we were all wearing frosting by the end of it.
The kids sang some holiday songs at the end but Mum and I missed it because we had to run over to Madison's class to help with their Holiday Around the World Party. My Mum donated Christmas Crackers for the kids which they took turns pulling after eating a smorgasbord of treats from around the world.
Madison pulled her cracker with her best friend Chloe......
Thursday night we headed out to dinner at a friends house. It was someone that Michael used to work with. I had never met them but we all had a great time. Madison got along great with their 9 year old son and Connor had fun playing with an old train set they had been saving in the garage. We are hoping to have them over for New Year's Eve.
Friday we spent the day celebrating my Mum's birthday and taking care of last minute preparations. My brother and his wife came over for breakfast after their graveyard shifts at the hospital. I made baked french toast and sausage quiche. It was yummy! In the evening we headed out to dinner to celebrate and then hit some Christmas lights on the way home.
We have spent the entire day at home, relaxing and enjoying each others company........can't wait for tomorrow!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
