We have the joy of two kids birthdays in December, both this side of Christmas. So admist the present buying and card writing we have 2 birthday parties to organise. This year our middle daughter wanted a swimming party but last week we found out the local fun pool would be closed for renovations. Quick change of plan, and instead of the pool we had the cinema party instead. There were only 2 toilet trips EACH between the four girls, and the couple who kissed a few rows in front of us caused more giggles than anything happening on screen!
On to snowflakes (not real ones! – no snow here yet) and candles.
This week at our jewellery class, along with making beaded snow-flakes we also decorated some candles with ribbon, wire, beads and pins. Here are a few samples I made, and I imagine they will be featuring at the craft party I have arranged for my other daughter for NEXT Saturday!
So do you have any December birthdays? If so, do you find it a challenge admist all the Christmas festivities?
Or have you tried making any new Christmas decorations this year?
Tomorrow we plan to visit a local open farm with reindeer and a special visitor (in a red suit), and my daughter is singing a solo verse (for the first time ever) with her school choir in our church evening service. At the moment I am more nervous than her!!!
Finally remember about our Nativity Set Blogging Carnival on 21 December, so come back and join in – there will be TWO prizes – one for a random blogger who takes part on the day, and one for a blogger who includes this button and a mention of the Carnival on their blog.
