I haven't fallen of the face of this earth.
It is only this week that I have been feeling better again, it was very draining I was always tired.
I'm glad school has finished for the year. Darian and Savannah finished Thursday 10th and Samuel finished today.
We had a visit to Christchurch on Tuesday and stayed the night at Mum and Dad's, came home on Wednesday as Samuel had Montessori on Thursday.
My Dad is Santa at the Hornby Mall, as long as I can remember his dream was when his beard is white he would give up work in December and be a Santa in a mall. He has been Santa for 10 years now and loves it every moment of it and has lots of great stories to tell. The kids visited him on Tuesday and had the photo taken with him. On Wednesday Mum took the kids and Jessica (cousin) into town on the bus, They went to see the Ballentynes window display and then went to the Cathedral and put presents under the Christmas Tree.
I met my to 2 sisters at the Hornby Mall, we went and had our photo taken with Dad (aka Santa), then we had lunch together without children. It was great we have never managed it before. I was able to get some more Christmas shopping done.
Today had been a real hive of activity Savannah (11 years) has been stamping on candles for her Christmas presents, she has used the snowflake stamp out of the Winter Post Stamp Set and stamped using Pacific Point, Real Red and Pixie Pink. She has done a fantastic job and everyone will love them.
