Beautiful prezzies.  A new leotard, books and the princess doll from Brave.

No where Saturday

I can’t believe that we didn’t go ANYWHERE the entire day!!

But we did all have a cuddle on the couch in front of TV tonight.  That kind of made up for it.

Explaining to Mum why I brought my ballet book home from the office.

Explaining to Mum why I brought my ballet book home from the office.

I told EVERYONE at the office that it was my last day today as we’re moving to another state.  I said goodbye to all my colleagues, my supervisors and my ballet instructor who wished me well and gave me my ballet book to take home so I could remember all the steps that I’ve learnt.  The only problem, Mum and Papi have just informed me, it’s not my quite my last day yet.  They’ll get a surprise when I’m back tomorrow then, won’t they?!

Santa has been here!

Yipee!  Santa filled our stockings with some of favourite things.  I had the Frozen disney princesses in mine and Rafa had cars.

Yipee! Over night, Santa filled our stockings. I got the Frozen disney princesses in mine and Rafa got cars.

We opened our other prezzies and played with them whilst Mum made ham and veggies for lunch.  Rafa's plane flew around (with repeated crashes) all day.

We opened our other prezzies and played with them whilst Mum made ham and veggies for lunch. Rafa’s plane’s maiden voyage was about 6 hours, with a few crashes and me sharing pilot duties along the way.  I think we managed to land on every single window sill in the house.

We then had a Mexican Christmas dinner at our friends house, posole and tortillas.  Yum!

Followed by chocolate brownie people cookies.  I had two of those.  Feet first.

I've laid our stockings in front of the fire.

Mum suggested Santa might appreciate some red wine and cheese.  And theirs carrots for the reindeer.

Mum suggested Santa might appreciate some red wine and cheese. And I put out carrots for the reindeer.

Well… there's carrots for the reindeer if someone doesn't keep taking off with them, that is.

Which the reindeer will enjoy if someone doesn’t keep taking off with them.

All ready.  Now the tricky bit.  Closing my eyes….

 

 

 

 

Don’t call me the lazy elf

December 23, 2013

I wasn’t being lazy to get out of the Christmas shopping yesterday.  As it turns out, I was coming down with a cold.  I haven’t been able to stop coughing and I sound darth vader-esk so it was back to the doc for me.  Fortunately the snot isn’t in my lungs, just stuck in my throat.  Oh, and an ear infection, but that’s no biggie.

So that meant I got Mum and Papi all to myself at lunch.  I was a little confused by that and kept asking after Ana.

After the doctor’s visit I got Mum and Papi all to myself at lunch. It was funny without Ana, I kept asking where she was.  Perhaps standing up and shouting out for her when lunch arrived at the table was a little dramatic of me.

Then a BIG, LONG, GLORIOUS afternoon nap and I'm starting to feel better already.

WAY more boring than it sounds.

Note to self: bring a pillow next time.
