At last we have our tree, I was feeling very jealous after seeing 21st Century Mummy's tree on her blog when I hadn't got mine. So Picklesdad was sent into the forest to get ours.
Unfortunately it was pouring with rain, and the helpful gentleman who was wrapping the tree in the clever netting stuff, LAID THE TREE DOWN IN A PUDDLE!
Honestly what was he thinking of. The tree had to be hosed down outside before we could bring it in, making it even wetter, if that was possible.
Also Pickle has taken part in her school play, and YES it was a semi-traditional nativity play. There was a Mary, Joseph, Shepherds, Sheep, 3 Wise Men, Angels and some fantastic STARS!
Picklesdad worked extremely hard on Pickles costume and she was the only star with battery operated lights on her costume!
Please note the brilliant gold stars which were my contribution to the ensemble.
Pickle sang all the songs beautifully and didn't even slip into Old MacDonald during Jingle Bells like she usually does.
"Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way,
Oh, McDonald had a farm......."
It's easily done!
