More from today...

VERY tired now, so just some pics :)...

Gathering for the ritual...


Casting the circle...


After we all burned out written out wishes for the coming year, the kids cast salt on the ashes and made their own wishes :)...


Then we got started on the Maypole, it starting out very orderly...


That didn't last long, hahaha...


Once the kids lost intereste, the mum's started trying to figure out it out and realise it would probably take a lot of practice to make it look "professional" :D...


And still going (that's a lot of ribbon there!)...


Aw, but didn't it turn out pretty! This lovely Maypole will now take up residence under the family bed of a friend who is hoping to be pregnant very soon! ;)...


And then it was time to feast!


We also got some EXCELLENT news of a friend who POAS today (such a great day to do this) and discovered that she, indeed, IS pregnant!!! Whoo Hoo, Congrats hon!!!

Wow Sif, it looks like you had such a fun day! I *love* the idea of a May Pole, it looked fab!

Don't tell me, does POAS stand for what I think it does?? What a funny acronym!

PS I am feeling better tonight, finally!

Juniper - Peed on a stick ;)

And congrats indeed dear POAS friend!

Thanks so much for a wonderful day Sif. We had such a great time and I too felt really charged by the energy in the circle and the potency of the wishes created by all of us.

May they grow to fruition in the coming year :D

I guessed right! Now my curiousity is peaked as to who... :)

Great photos! Jen you are definitely more switched on than me, I had NO idea what that acronym meant! I'm curious as to whom also! ?????
