I am enjoying going through some photos and looking back on the break over Christmas. Definitely a 'break' in the sense of a change in the usual happenings of life, and not a break in the restful sense.....for some reason I seem to be waking up feeling tired most mornings, lol.
I agreed to have an early family Christmas 'do' at our house with grandparents, aunty and uncle and cousins.....10 kids in all. I was loving all the silver and purple around so we went with that theme. I slowly gathered a few bits and pieces together with the idea of setting a separate kids table (rather than the usual kids and cousins munching on the floor!)
This silver cracker was from foil paper - note to self.....don't use that again. The foil just doesn't have the tear factor going for it, as pretty as it looks. I found the instructions here and some great Christmas cracker jokes here through google (already in pdf and nicely formatted).....I was part way through putting the crackers together and thought nice idea, but I must be crazy!
We did go to the dam a couple of days ago and Miss 12 had a few short stints up on skis and my Master 11 did well later in the afternoon by popping straight up and having a few long skis - they make it look so easy. So great to see them having fun!
Happy New Year to you and I hope that you have a blessed and wonderful year ahead....and can have some creative time too.
