Like everyone else I imagine, the last few weeks have been filled with lots of happenings for us.
Lets start back at the beginning of the month:
Hannah sent off her Christmas letter to Santa
We were invited to the Hawkes Bay Girl Guide awards where Hannah was presented with a certificate for her Gold Apple Badge, this is the highest award a NZ Pippin can earn.
The tree was decorated and a few of our other special Christmas treasures have been placed around the living room.
I enjoyed a lovely day out with my work friends in Napier - might have done quite a bit of shopping! And that carrot cake was delicious by the way!
The local Christmas parade was held on a very very hot day a few Saturdays ago and this year Hannah was involved with the Girl Guide float. This year's theme was Around the World so all the Pippin and Brownie girls wore uniforms from around the world, Hannah was a Canadian Spark girl and her little friend Molly wore the unform from Malta, look at that cute crocheted beret!
Hannah has just loved being involved with Pippins and then Brownies this year, and last week the finale was held at one of our local parks - a sausage sizzle, treasure hunt, games and then a slip and slide for all the girls. Well, I haven't laughed so much in ages watching all the girls making their way down it!! Hannah had a ball. What great fun for everyone!
This past weekend my stitching friends came for dinner Saturday night and we had a really entertaining evening catching up with one another. Looking forward to our stitching afternoons in 2016 already!
