What to watch on tv

They never cease to amaze me. The brats play so beautifully together - and indeed they did yesterday afternoon - they took turns with musical instruments and choosing songs - I rarely had to intervene - yet they also had a few arguments - about the tv.

My parents bought them a plastic playhouse for CHristmas - it arrived on Monday and because we won't be here over Christmas the plan was to let them have it straight away so they can play with it for a while before we travel north to visit my parents. Needless to say the love it. They decorated it with tinsel and cut and paste a picture of a Christas tree. Then when Kit and I were cutting out pictures to paste on a piece of paper - he decided the tv we cut out should go in the house. From there it deteriorated ...

So yes they love the house - and when they aren't arguing over what to watch on it or whether the door is open or shut so do I - it keeps them amused for ages!

In case I don't get to post again before Christmas - I hope that you all have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas spent with those you love. God bless.

Hannah loves to Wiggle

In September some of us had to give a presentation on pop culture - I chose to do the Wiggles. Here is a clip I took of Hannah wiggling to use in the presentation.

Earlier this week Kit wrote a letter to Santa (his first), he had about 5 things on his list - toy clothesline, timer for his kitchen, bath for his baby, ipod ... Hannah also wanted to write a letter to Santa. I didn't think she'd get what we were doing but when I asked her what she wanted for Christmas she said cake (I may have prompted that one as an example) and 'wrote it' and then she said 'Dorothy'. So now the hunt is on for the perfect Dorthy Christmas present!
