Christmas Cheer

Well it's over,

we had our school Thanksgiving Service

 the students were presented with their awards

and performed for us.

I love our Thanksgiving Service,

the students, the teachers and the parents all come together

to give thanks for another school year

 it is so lovely to see the many wonderful things that they have achieved.

School is now over for the year!

and for WH and I, work is over for the year too!

This last week was a mad rush of trying to fit everything in

and finish three weeks worth of work in one...

but now it's over.

We can take a deep breath and stop for a while

So if I am absent for a while you know I am just recharging my batteries

and hanging out with my boys

We're planning on having a break for a week or so,

then we will get busy again preparing for all of our Christmas get togethers

We have some half finished,

ok lots of half finished jobs

but we're not going to think about our half lit front yard,

or our half built courtyard

or the half built outdoor setting. 

I may work on my Christmas tags though

they are fun, not really working at all

and now that I have some hints from Kerry and Spencer on what to use for the writing

I should enjoy it even more!

Hope you are all able to take some time out to just ENJOY!!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of our Christmas decorations,

our theme is red, green and gold, just in case you didn't guess.

I'll be back with some more before Christmas
