Gumboot Chic ...

I've made Maya's dress. Lined with red polka dots, 8 buttons up the back, a bow that ties at the front or the back. I don't care if it looks homemade!

She can catch bugs in it ...

and it's even good with gumboots!

Kane was a very good sheep at the nativity play on Friday and Callum did manage to stay awake and sing their song during the service. It was a bit close though, very tired Grade 2's but oh, their teachers must really enjoy being with these kids to organise a school sleepover on the second last day of school. Good on them!

Ayden had a farewell year 9 barbecue on Friday and all the learning mentors cooked the kids breakfast. They have been looking after these kids between years 7 and 9. A few teachers upset as the kids go off to the senior school from the middle school. Not Ayden's!

The kids received lovely presents from their teachers. Callum's teacher had all the kids pose in a very casual "footy pose" and had the photo made up into magnets for all the kids, along with some other bits and pieces. Kane came home with a kit to make rubber bouncy balls - perfect for him. Fantastic teachers this year.

Not a single Christmas card written yet ...

What a beautiful dress for playing in - it looks vintage-style and unique to me. Just lovely - and very chic with wellies!

That dress is gorgeous! and the gumboots just sets it off. What a shame we've needed them these last few days! I am on the the last of the Christmas cards!

What a beautiful dress! The little Lockets don't finish school until Friday - I wish they had more time at home to play "getting ready for Christmas"!

A dress that looks homemade? Any girl should be that lucky. Well done.
