The first days of Christmas

Yesterday we started decorating the house. Sienna took a particular liking to these gel-type decorations that we got from Farmers.

She likes to put the dots on top of one another and see what colour they make. Today was our planned visit into town for the Christmas Tree light up, and tomorrow we were off to Santas Balloomin Fantastic Balloon and Lolly Shop at the Base. But fearing that it would be too busy on a Saturday we decided to head over today instead.
 Christmas is certainly looking colourful so far!

I can't believe how Christmassy you're being this year--is that really you, Hay? Or have you been abducted by aliens and replaced with a clone?!

Hahahaha, you sound like Maddie. She is treating my Christmas joy with much skepticism. I probably should have started out smaller, after this year, I may be Christmassed out forever!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
