Merry Christmas!


Ding dong merrily on high,
In heav'n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

E'en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And "Io, io, io!"
By priest and people sungen.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Matthew and Elizabeth were angels in the impromptu Christmas pageant this year. They were very cute. I can't believe we didn't take any pictures of Elizabeth!


After church we had Chinese fondue in front of the fire. Then the kids opened matching PJs. They might seem familiar - Elizabeth's just about to outgrow the 4T size she got two years ago. Matthew sadly outgrew his many moons ago. Elizabeth was quite thrilled to get the next size up...

We dressed up for our annual raclette dinner. Strangely, some of us eat less cheese now that we aren't teenagers... But the kids are definitely growing up...

Elizabeth and Adi had so much fun playing together yesterday at Adi's house that they decided they needed to play together again today at Elizabeth's house...


Sadly it was too cold for making a snowman but they still managed to entertain themselves.

Nora's family invited us to brunch in the morning and we discovered ham wrapped eggs which are like bacon wrapped eggs but less fiddly. Very yummy food from a family that turns out to be even bigger than mine (!) Elizabeth was most impressed by the biggest Christmas tree she'd ever seen (more than 14') and the fact that the house had TWO trees (guess how many she wants next year?). Actually the house owners weren't even there, but it was the most decorated place I've ever seen and we were all impressed, if a little frightened. The kids had a lovely time bopping balloons around many sharp objects and generally having way too much fun.


After brunch, the girls headed to Jaya's birthday party. Jaya is a friend from Elizabeth's class who just turned four, which I find mind boggling since Elizabeth is about to turn six. No wonder Elizabeth seems so much more mature than some of the kids in her class this year... Jaya celebrated her birthday at Fun Haven. It was the loudest party I have ever been to and utterly convinced me that we will never book a party for Elizabeth there. Elizabeth enjoyed it but most of the kids were too young to "get" the games (eg in the laser beam maze it makes a cool noise if you touch the beams, but you are actually not supposed to touch them).


After the party Elizabeth headed to Adi's house where they skated, decorated gingerbread cookies, played in a blanket fort and had a great time together.
