Parties and more parties

Tis the season to have parties. Kid's Christmas parties, work functions, birthday parties, you name it, they're all happening!

Wednesday was 'Dress Up' day at daycare, starting with the letter 'S'. Noah decided to go as a soldier, Rambo style, and we had fun putting together a costume for him to wear! Other children came as soccer players, sunshine, superhero, Spiderman, sheep etc. What fun!

Friday was Noah's daycare Christmas party, and we enjoyed a BBQ lunch before the kids performed a short concert. Then the big man in the red suit showed up with presents for all the children who were extremely excited to see him . I'm not sure they recognised him as one of the husbands of the teachers there, and there was a lot of jostling for position to see who could sit the closest to him as the presents were handed out.

We couldn't resist taking a wee video clip of the concert. The last 2 songs are fairly recognisable as Jingle Bells and We Wish you a Merry Christmas, but the first two are quite clever, and may be a little hard to make out, so here are the words:

A Jumbo Jet
A jumbo jet, a jumbo jet
A heli-heli copter and a jumbo jet
Concorde, Concorde
A heli-heli copter and a jumbo jet

A Ford escort, a Ford escort,
A mini mini mini and a Ford escort
Ferarri, Ferarri
A mini mini mini and a Ford escort

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the Christmas Tree
Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the tree
Down came the snow and made poor Incy freeze (check out the kids 'freezing' - cute!)
Out came the sun and melted all the snow
So Incy Wincy Spider had another go!

Yesterday Noah and his friends also had a fun filled afternoon at Karori Pool for Aarnav's 4th birthday. As it's often just Mark and Noah who head to the pool for their regular Sunday afternoon swim, the camera usually stays at home. So I made the most of being along for the ride yesterday to get some great shots of the kids and espeically Noah, who spent most of the time in mid-air. As you can see, there's nothing wrong with his water confidence which is great.

Mylo sat quietly in his car seat for the duration, not making a peep, just taking all the noise and action in. He even dropped off to sleep quite happily for some of the time - little treasure!
