December is a month of Christmas parties. The first party was at our kids´ preschool. They had a play where teachers dressed up as Pippi Longstocking and Karlsson-on-the-roof. I only went with one of our kids because the other one was very sick. We were sick for at least 2 weeks, one after another.
After the play there was a bake sale to buy toys for the preschool. I took a few things there too. And then spent money to buy sweets and toys etc. Teachers of one of our kids are the ones at the last table in the photo.
We also made some ginger bread cookies. The kids helped with cutting out and putting on the pan.
Another party was at my school. It was workers´ kids´ Christmas party. The girls got a tour in the building and all.
They were running around the empty corridors.
Sorting candy that they got from Santa.
Here is our Christmas dinner on 24th. We like it simple. We still had so many leftovers even though it was not a big meal.
Our kids did not get tons of toys but compared to many they still got plenty so their stuff is not shown here. But our little piles are here. A very expensive box of Lucky Charms from Germany and some candy. I actually got new boots this year and Matthew got a coat, both pretty costly. But I was so glad that Matthew finally went and got the coat because he has been looking like a bum with the old coat that was ripped in several places.
Christmas morning selection for breakfast:
Moana wig our kids got as a present:
We went to visit my grandma and dad and others on 25th. They had snow there. And it melted the next day. So northern Estonia got no snow and southern Estonia got plenty of it. Like there was a line in the middle of Estonia, snow on one side.
Yesterday I had another Christmas party. This was my work place party for all of the workers. It was in Saue manor, close by. There was a concert, a dinner, games etc.
Here are the singers. It was nice, she is an Estonian pop singer and he is a Spanish opera singer. Very interesting.
All the workers gathering up.
My dinner. Some of it already gone. It was nice. It was a buffet style dinner.
Overall our Christmas time has been nice. We have been moving these past days to a rental place until our apartment gets done. It might take months. Hopefully it will be sooner...
