Last weekend it was our church Christmas party, with food, games and dancing. All the girls joined in the with ceilidh dancing: this is a very tiring exercise... Esther is a really good dancer now (musical bumps) but really excelled herself with pass the parcel. The older girls really enjoyed the games and being around friends (and have been doing the dances at school so they even know some of the steps). We had a great time!
|For brief moments they play really nicely together too|
|Miriam has custody of Pepper, the class parrot for the weekend, so he came to the party as well.|
|Lydia was just having a really good time!|
|The children also got a visit from a certain chubby Christmas celebrity dressed in red.|
|Esther's present was a drawing board.|
This is a dolphin!
|Lydia's present was a pair of snow globes to decorate - here is one.|
|Naomi got a grown up cup with a pattern to colour in...|
|I'm really impressed with the design she's put on it!|
|Miriam also got snow globes, but with these you get clay to mould into shapes. These bake in the oven and then you fill them with water and glitter...|
|Here are some of the parts ready for immersion (actually, we tried once and they came unstuck, so they have some glitter on already here)|
