Merry silly season one and all!

Ah, it's December, my absolute fave month of the year, and not just because my birthday and Christmas and Summer all happen this month - but those are three darn good reasons, nevertheless!!!

Put up the tree last night, did the "lazy" verson of the tree, only a few baubles, some tinsels, and unbreakable dangly things - good thing too! Bryn has decided NOT to follow in his brothers' footsteps by attacking the tree with gusto at every given opportunity! That second pic is of him "undecorating" the tree, LOL!

I have to say, I NEVER had this problem with Erik or Luey, they both totally understood the principles of "Gentle Special Tree Care"... Bryn seems to think it's a "whacking tree", and the object of the game is to knock down as many baubles as possible, so slowly but surely they're all being relocated at the top of the tree... He managed to snaffle a candy cane before too, AND opened it! Clever little chappy...

Gotto love him though, he's so darn cute! Chasing off with his ill gotten gains as soon as he heard Luey tell me what he'd done, he KNEW Luey was dobbing him in! Hahahaha!

It's been a very busy day, and I've been particularly loathing of my non-lisenced status today as Luey, Bryn and I took 10 (count 'em 10!) different busses dropping Erik off and picking him up from school - here's how today panned out...

8.00am - Bus to shopping centre B
8.35am - Bus from shopping centre B to school
9.30am - Bus from school to shopping B, and morning tea
10.30am - Bus from shopping centre B to school to pick up Erik while his class did swimming
11.15am - Bus from school to shopping centre B, then lunch with Erik and some shopping
12.45pm - Bus from shopping centre B to school to drop Erik back for the afternoon
1.20pm - Bus from school to shopping centre B, and more window shopping to pass time
3.15pm - Bus from shopping centre B to school to pick Erik up
4.00pm - Bus from school to shopping B
4.30pm - Bus from shopping B to home

OMG! What I wouldn't have given to be living closer to the school today, or to be able to drive myself around!

Meanwhile, got PLENTY of exercise today because I carried Bryn around in the Ergo all that time, boy do I love my Ergo!
