 Finally time to catch up on the month of December 2011.  Starting with Grandpa"s 'birthday celebrations on Christmas and laughter as always and above Sophie and Sari manage to have a bit of a "girly chat time"....not an annoying brother or cousin in sight!!
All this running arounds is thirsty work...Luc stops for a refreshment as Sarah cleans up the knocked over and spilt drink nearby....Havana caught leaving the scene of the crime!

 It wouldn't be the same if Sophie wasn't caught on camera upside down on one of her many hundred handstands for the night...
Happy 74th birthday Grandpa....hope you don't mind us re using your 70th birthday candle for the 4th year running!!!
ooh wow, a picture of all 4 of us.....SMILE Luc, Santa is on his way!!

Luc's Xmas Concert and Kindergarten "Graduation"

 When Luc heard that his kindy class was going to perform a concert on their last day of kindy he went straight to the teacher and said......."I want to be  a star"!!!!  He even came home from school and told me that he was going to be the star of the show!!
 And "Star" he was!!!  The kids performed the Christmas Story complete with baby "doll" Jesus, Mary and Joseph.  Luc's "starring" role was when he had to raise the cardboard cut out glittery star and then all the children sang a song called "The Northern Star".  They also sang, Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer cute!!
 Afterwards a graduation certificate and a picture with his lovely teacher Mrs Rullo...the best teacher ever!!
After school I told Luc that there would be no more Kindy and that next year in February he would be at Pre Primary which is 5 days a week (instead of 2)...full time school...his response......"Nah, I'm just going to take a few weeks off and think about what I fee like doing next""!!   In 2 weeks time Pre Primary starts......Luc still says he is just going to back to kindy!
