I just returned from Toad's ballet recital. That little girl is so good! You should see the look of concentration in her facial expressions. She's very agile and graceful. After Toad's ballet, my MIL and I drove around town to see all the Christmas lights and decorations that everyone's put up. Where we are, there aren't too many lights up. You have to go to town to see all the festive lights! There were cute candy cane lights and inflatable Santa Clauses and reindeer. There were blow up snowmen and yes, every neighbourhood needs a house that looks like the Griswold family's house in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (1989)!!
Hubby and I didn't decorate outside our house this year. Perhaps when we have kids we'll get all festive, but right now, all I can think about is the electricity bill for lighting a house that looks like the Griswolds'! Plus, our driveway is sooooooooo long and soooooooo far from the highway that no one would see our lights unless they drove down to the house (our driveway looks like a lonnnnng street).
This weekend Toad and Pook have a basketball tournament and Tuesday they have their Christmas Concert at their school. Busy, busy! You know you're an auntie when you've got heaps of activities to attend and stuff to buy for school fundraising! LOL! Thank goodness we only have two nieces at the moment! :)
Wildlife count on the drive home: four deer and one rabbit (nearly hit them all! I hate driving at night!)
