Hey there...it's Christmas you know :)



I have many pictures to upload and yet I cannot fnd my connector for my camera to do so, gah!

Mia's Kindergarten Graduation is just one of the many images I wanted to share..it was also the Christmas party too.

Sarah got her Prep School report, she got all "consistently" ticked off for every comment in her report..so very proud we are...so she is off to grade 1 next year!

Nicholas excelled in his writing and maths, for Grade 2 level he was marked on a graph (new type of school reports now) as an end of Grade 3 level! Proud mother hen here :) He reads books that I can read and well, I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree there. Off to Grade 3 next year.

Tomas tried his very best at everything ths year. Soe of the homework would seem excessive to us parents, for Grade 4 level. Yet, he did it and he did very well. I always think of the teachers and what they have to do marking all this homework too...so much to do! Tomas is off to Grade 5 next year.

Last night I had a dream and I woke up woth a wet pillow from crying. Itwas about my friend Frances who died a few yeas ago of a brain tumour.... so I am off to put a Christmas decoration next to her nameplate at the cemetry.

Christmas shopping is complete, I was so glad to get out of the shopping centre . I am not calustrophobic but I did start to panic a bit. Do you feel the same this time of the year?

Those are some beautiful kids. Sounds like they are as smart as their momma as well. I am ready for Christmas to be gone....too much fuss for us to be alone! Shopping is done, gifts packaged and mailed off...and now the 2 of us here without kids around.

Mom said...

Such a busy, full house! Christmas shopping done before the 24th. Sounds like good organization to me.

Well done on your kids reports :)

Christmas shopping crowds - URGH! Cannot stand the bedlam.

Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful children!

The next few days picking up the seafood and getting the essentials at the supermarket etc.. are the real ones I just dread. I hate the crowds and the lines and the parking...... or maybe I am just extra cranky this year.

May your lines all be the quick ones!

Sorry to hear about your friend Francis. I know what that's like to go through that kind of loss.

But I hope you and the kids all have a Merry Christmas. And let us know how it turns out.

Peace out.

That is a very nice tribute for your friend. I do get a little panicky from time to time.

Okay, so I'm a little late here. I mean, it's still Christmas day here in Arkansas, but over there where you guys are it's the day after I guess. Anyway, hope you had a great Christmas Cazzie!!

Your kids are great Cazzie and you and dad have made them like that...so concratulations from a mum of grown up kids... all power to you and your little family, Its such a happy time when they are all so little and in your face. I loved it. Too much maybe. Miss it terribly still.
Your friend is okay no doubt. There is an after life no matter what many think and she would be happy and when you dream that passionaltly no doubt she is there for you too.
Hate shopping centres and feel very disorientated when I go there - as little as possible.
