Well, dears, tonight is the Christmas Pageant and we’re so looking forward to seeing you all at the performance later! The girls have been practicing so hard, and dare I say that I think they are finally able to carry a tune, though they still need a little help with the words.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn't it? Just 7 days and 15 hours (not that we're counting)... Are you in full-on decorating mode? Wearing out your credit cards and giving the postman backache? Trying to contain the excitement of children anticipating a visit from Santa Claus? Collapsed in an exhausted heap on the sofa?

Well, now is the time for indulging in our favourite parts of the festive season. So What's your favourite Christmas tradition?

What was your best ever Christmas present?

Only thirteen days till Christmas! Are we excited? Panicked? Wondering whether, in a pinch, our loved ones will appreciate gifts from the motorway service station (sorry Carole, that might be a bit close to the bone given your worst ever Christmas present!). These are the best Christmas presents we've ever received, and I have to admit, more than one made me misty :-)

Well, writing Christmas books certainly does put one in the spirit! We're bursting with good cheer and would love to share some of that with our readers. So over the next four weeks we Christmas Creche mums will be posting our answers to some fun Christmas questions. We hope you'll join the merriment (and embarrassment :-)) with your own stories.

Show and tell

The girls beamed with pride when they arrived at the creche this morning, and who could blame them? Everyone loves show-and-tell day! Though it did get a bit crowded ...

To capture the enthusiasm of the day, I made a little video, which the girls will bring home for you to see. It was a bit hard to understand what everyone was saying so I transcribed it here for you too.
