Good riddance to 2010 I say.
It was definitely a testing year for me. But I truly believe it has made me a stronger and much wiser person and I have so much to look forward to in 2011 and I'm feeling very positive and excited about it. My big almost 5 year old is starting school this year and that alone is exciting but also very nerve racking and scary. It's definitely going to be a year of massive changes for my little family.
With the hype and craziness of Christmas and New Years over it's time to start thinking about the new year and what lies ahead.
Cooper is all ready for school. Uniforms are bought, new shoes are ready to be worn, his school bag is bought. All we need to do now is get his book list finalised and find some school socks that aren't two sizes to big. Cooper has the worlds smallest feet for a 4 1/2 year old . I think he's put his uniform on about 10 times since he's had it. He is very excited about starting school. We are actually really lucky because his little friend Cassie from my original mothers group who Cooper has known from birth is also going to the same school. And they are lucky enough to be in the same class as well which us really nice to know. I think it's quite reassuring for them both to know there is someone they know going to be there for them.
Here are some photos of what was our Christmas and New Years.
My 'famous' rocky road which this year I made in to a xmas wreath. I was pretty happy with how it turned out actually.
Twas the night before Christmas and 'Santa' had already been and left the presents and and ate his milk and cookies that the boys had left him. Plus of course the reindeers enjoyed their carrots.
