Scene and Heard

SCENE: The kids end-of-year Christmas party starring Mr G as Santa. Scrag quivers with fear and clings to his mummy, refusing to go anywhere near The Bearded One.

HEARD: "Mummy Santa Claus got my daddy's shoes...!"
I could not believe my ears. From a distance Scrag spotted his daddy's shoes on Santa's feet and accused Santa of stealing them!

SCENE: Teacher thankyou gifts, last day of school. Look at our pretty boxes. Don't they look expensive?

Boxes: $2.50 each from 2Cheap. Decorative wooden tree Ornaments: $1 each from 2Cheap. Ribbon: recycled. Contents: Homemade Rocky Road & Peppermint Bark. The Smiles on their faces? Priceless.

HEARD: Actually read rather than heard. Dash made his long-suffering teacher a card with a collage angel inside. (Art is not his strong point but it's the thought that counts, right?) As an afterthought he wrote:

Tee Hee.

SCENE: The angel dressing room before the kids Christmas Production on Sunday.

Check out these cute black-faced sheepies... recognise anyone?

And these pretty angels. Aren't they sweet?

Look... it's my friend Gail over at Delightfully Diva-ish, putting it all on the line for the sake of the kids. *Smile*

HEARD: (Miss Fab) "Mum I found a proper hoolay..."
Me (slightly confused and picturing hawaiian angels in flower leis): "HUH? A what?"
Miss Fab: "You know mum, a hoolay. You know those things angels wear on their heads?"
Oh. She means a Halo. Tee Hee.

OVERHEARD: (Dash) "Grandma do you know what I want for Christmas? Just four things.... Some SillyBandz - two packs... some GoGos - two packs... to be with my family... and to not get growled..."

Oops. Looks like I've overdone it on the gift-buying again. He would have been happy with $20 bucks worth of the latest school fad gears and a whole lotta peace and love.

I loved cuddling Scrag on stage on Sunday! He's soooo cuddly as opposed to my boy who was OBSESSED by all the guitars! Hmmm have I spelt obsessed right? Think so...

I'm not suprised Simoney, as if that Santa wasn't scary enough without adding cleptomania to the list. He's supposed to be all giving!
