It's promising to be another busy week this week.  No more after-school activty clubs, but there's still Z's panto tomorrow.  I'm running around trying to finish my Christmas shopping.  There are still a few on my list that I'm still trying to figure out what to get for.  I have managed to wrap up a number of the presents that I'd gotten.  I love wrapping!  Lazy bum that I am, I still have not gone through the bags and boxes of things that I want to have cleared out before my parents arrive... so there's that for the next couple of days.  The weekend will see us helping distribute goodie bags to a home for the elderly.  I really think that it's a worthy exercise for the kids. Maybe it can be something that we can do every year starting now.  

Very busy, but loving it... and really looking forward to the holidays!

I don't remember the title of this piece of art (above), but it was something I saw when we were in the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane last year. There's something about it that I really like.

We occasionally have game nights.  One of our favorite games is Taboo.  We had started with parent-child pairings, but once the kids discovered that they were more successful if they team up with each other (instead of with a parent), it's now always us vs. them.  They somehow always manage to beat us.  It's like they have their own unique language!  J is excellent at giving clues and Z great at getting what he means.  They have their own secret references to things.  Maybe not so secret; maybe we're just not young or hip enough.  Hmmph.  We tell them that we're just going easy on them whenever they win. They smirk and go, "Yeah, right."
