Christmas trees, functions and lunchtime walks in the sun

It's a crazy time of year, isn't it? I'm so very glad we are now on holiday for the next two weeks. I thought I'd catch up with some bits and bobs that we've been up to for the last couple of weeks.

We put up a tree at the beginning of the month. Jef made a cool rig to secure the tree, and Kien and I decorated the tree the following day.

The weather has been fantastic (prior to today, that is). So summery and lovely. So last week I tried to get out for lunchtime walks a couple of times.

Lots of work functions for both Jef and I. My work function was a private concert with an awesome lineup, including Dave Dobbyn, Anika Moa, Boh Runga, Hollie Smith and the Black Seeds. We had such a great night out.

We've also been to see the Telecom Christmas tree a couple of times over the last few weeks. One beautiful evening we scootered Kien down to Victoria Park.

He called Santa.

The boys also used the skate ramps as slides.

General merriment was to be had at and near the tree.

So it is now the beginning of Christmas Eve and my household is quiet. It hasn't been quiet for some time. Oh boy, Kien has been trying as hard as he can to test our patience and stamina. I've been doing a bit of research and it sounds like Kien is going through the 3 year growth spurt. So the poor kid is experiencing growing pains. But he's also testing the boundaries. Yeah, it's been hard, really hard. I'm hoping things will even out soon.
