advent post #2
So this week's new tradition is the Christmas production.
Every year so far, there has been a school carol concert, a dance/theatre/musical event, even the odd, completely bizarre "the class wrote it themselves" play, but this year... nada.
So, beach hut new tradition #2....
The Christmas Production.
This year we'll be visiting the cinema as a family and the festive cinematic offering is... 'Where the Wild Things are'
This was my favourite book and therefore all three children have had this read to them over and over again. We still have an ancient, beat up old version of it somewhere.
I am EXTREMELY excited by the thought of our family film, Lil and Alfie are somewhat excited, Slap is a sighing, do I have a choice, sort of excited and Oz (15) is, as we speak, trying on various disguises. Apparently, there is a fate worse than death and that is being spotted by your peer group entering a children's christmas film with your parents!
He was even threatening to boycott said event until it was gently broken to him that, in fact, there isn't a big bloke in a red suit with reindeer and he is therefore relying on said parents to come up with the ipod he's so keen on.
The scores on the doors then at the end of week two:
