It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

Our Dance School had their Christmas Party yesterday. Gee did we have fun - laugh, laugh and laugh. Limbo, chicken dance, musical chairs - all the great party games were played!!! And of course we had the obligatory Santa visit - looking different every time!

Is that Ballerina Santa?

2 Santas?

Another Santa!

Limbo Santa!

Santa and Ballerina!

It got quite hot in that Santa suit, but we had loads of fun!!

Enjoy your weekend.

Happy Birthday Princess Kiara

Nieces are the children that we borrow,
Intending not to raise but merely love,
Ever watchful from our open window,
Caring deeply at a slight remove.
Everywhere you go, my love will follow,
Still part of you wherever you may live.

I know you had 3 cakes but the one above is our special cake to you. We love you heaps and wish we could be there with you!!

Grow - we love you both forever!

Think Like a Tree

by Karen I. Shragg

Soak up the sun
Affirm life's magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to hear your own leaves rustling.

Photo Hunters #35 - I Love....

It is goes without saying that I love my life. I have been blessed with a wonderful family and love them all unquestionably - they keep me grounded, sane and entertained! I have a handful of close friends that I love and share my life with. Although they are the loves of my life, there are many other things that I love.........




A great BBQ!

A refreshing cocktail!

Laughing and having fun!

Did I mention a refreshing cocktail!

The rain!

And as mentioned without my family - it would not mean a thing!

I could go on and on and on - but I hope you get the idea! Life is way too short and I intend to enjoy every minute!!

Enjoy your weekend.

5, 6, 7, 8 Dance Concert!!

Last night we celebrated the end of a fantastic dancing year with our annual concert. As most of you would know our Ballerina is a dancer and she starred last night!! Ballerina not only does ballet, she also does jazz, tap, hip hop, irish, performance group (going to Disneyland in 3 weeks!) - oh and singing and drama!! Last night she starred in no less than 18 dances/singing/drama and she smiled the whole night through!! We are so proud of her! Of course a very small number of you may know that I have been dancing this year with the ladies group - and what a great time I have had - Tuesday nights (our dance night)are great nights - never laughed so much!! Below are a few photos from the last night:
