    the christmas tree is coming up. we make a few ornaments each day and hang them, what with term exams for kids and all. can't wait to finish it and wake up to a full, shiny tree every morning.

Must be so fantastic for the kids to be involved in making ornaments. Lots of memory making too.

really fantastic!

dear son has found uses for the scissors. he made a gaping hole in his t-shirt and one in the living room curtains and also snipped a lot of the curtain's edges. guess what he said. "look ma shurcul!"
