You may know that Carl takes Romily along to playgroup every Monday, where around 20 kids under 3 years come together for two hours each week, play a little, have storytime, singing and morning tea.
Well, this week gone by was the final playgroup for the year and they had a special Christmas morning tea.
Carl and Romily baked gingerbread men, which was lots of fun - Romily loved helping to roll out the dough as well as cut the shapes, although we had to supervise closely! She also enjoyed decorating them.
The bit I enjoyed most was watching the kids demolish the gingerbread men - they particularly relished biting off the heads! Some things never change across the generations do they?
The big finale was the arrival of Santa. Actually this was my personal highlight of the morning. Look closer and see if you know who was Santa!
What a good sport he is. He was actually a most dashing Santa. A good thing I'm already married to him or I may have considered racing him off!!
I was glad I could go along...on one of my sick days...I stayed well away from all the kids so I didn't infect them. It was fortunate I was there, as Romily had no idea where Daddy was!
It is so lovely to see them eyes wide with wonder learning all about Santa and the magic of Christmas.
I am just about all recovered from my throat infection/cold and am pleased to report that I have just about finished the first of the table runners for my father-in-law - just have to sew the label on. I hope to finish Robina's teapot quilt tonight!
