And The Band Begins To Play

Are you sitting down??
You might want to get comfortable
Because you are about to experience the busy-ness of the last few days
December and Summer started
And with the start of December we started our ‘Christmas Calendar’
We go youngest to oldest, so today was Dave’s turn but Lucy had the very first one


Friday night we (plus Mum, Dad, my sister and the M&Ms) all ventured to the Combined Primary Schools Band and Choir Concert


Megan was in the band and Jessica in the choir
This photo gives you an overview of how many kids participated

It’s out of focus but here you can see the Grade 5 combined band and up behind them is the choir
There were also 4 Grade 6 bands
Lots of kids
and they all played/sang really well!!
Here is Jessica in the choir


Can you see her hehehe
and a closer view of Megan in the band


we all enjoyed the night but were super tired by the end Smile
Yesterday someone started putting up the outside Christmas lights


he only did a few before we went to Mum and Dad’s to partake in some of this


to celebrate Mum’s birthday


and, again, we enjoyed spending time with everyone


and this afternoon SOMEONE played with more of THESE


and before you fall asleep with all our going-ons…
Here is a page I made with the new Aromatica Botanica kit from QTea 


Love the texture this kit contains
Love the fabric tapes and that they can be punched


love doilies


and I love this story Smile


Phew and that’s just part of our December, so far, still loads to do/enjoy
20 sleeps till Christmas
18 sleeps till my birthday
12 sleeps till Dave start holidays
11 sleeps till the last day of school
1 sleep till our wedding anniversary

lots to do, lots to do
Gee I’m sounding like the Mad Hatter…..

Pin It Now!


  1. Your life sounds like mine, minus the Christmas lights on the house. I just can't do it myself and even if I wanted to, I couldn't figure out where Gary left them in the garage so now house lights this year. (He has also hidden all other forms of Christmas decorations except for the tree stuff.) I had to go to my flickr photos to prove to myself that they existed. :-) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas (just in case I forget to comment again before then.)
