The Travelling Crib

Today is the first Sunday of Advent and we had to receive the Travelling Crib in Church. We were very nervous but all went well.
This follows a Mexican custom where during Advent people dressed as Mary & Joseph travelled around there villages knocking on peoples' door to find hospitality.
We looked after Mary & Joseph for one night and then we delivered it to the next family on the list. We had to knock on their door and then we were invited in to have tea and cake. I loved it I played with the little girl whose name was Sarah and she was 6 and went to St Andrew's School too.

The Nutcracker Ballet Show

Here's my official shot ....

This weekend I performed in my ballet school show. I was a party girl in The Nutcracker. Mummy had to gel my hair back into a night tight bun which made me look so much older. I had to do 2 performances on both the Saturday and Sunday. On the Sunday evening performance Mummy, Daddy, Nanny Maur and Mim came to watch and they were so proud.

Olly's Birthday Party

Today I went to Olly's 4th birthday party at his house. Louis was there and so was his baby brother Samuel. We made party hats, played a Knicker Bocker Glory game, pass the parcel and then had a beautiful tea of make-your-own-sandwiches which was great fun.
Thanks Olly! x

Now That I Am Four

I have changed quite a bit since I started Nursery. I am sooo grown up now. I stand on my chair and reach into my wardrobe and choose my own clothes and get entirely dressed, clean my teeth, brush my hair and clean my face without Mummy even knowing. I then jump up and down and giggle when Mummy is VERY surprised that I am ready.
I can recognise all letters now and I am starting to ask what signs and titles on the TV say. When I wrote my Christmas cards out I could write the To and my name very well.
I now use a knife and fork with ease and don't even ask for a spoon (except for my cereal!!). The buggy is still catching dust in the garage as it is never used but the biggest change must be how good I am on my scooter now. I zip along very fast but, unfortunately not as fast as Louis. In fact I don't do anything as fast as Louis which has me collapsing in a heap and crying sometimes but Mummy is trying to teach me not to give us. This has created a big competitive relationship with him as I always want to be bigger, faster and older than him. When I found out we were meeting him one day I wore my 4 badge just to prove that I AM NOW FOUR!!
I have trouble pronouncing my 'Rs' so I say 'wang' instead of 'rang' and 'Wudolph' instead of 'Rudolph' etc. So I have Mummy in hysterics when I sing 'Just Awound The Wiver Bend' on my Disney Princess CD - hilarious. Another of my little mistakes today was 'Apple Fool' which is when you play a trick on someone on 'Apple Fools Day' ha ha!
I am still a tiny little thing I am 100cm tall (which just below an average height for my age of 102cm) and 15kg (which is below the average of 16.5kg) and I am still wearing age 3-4 clothes. This is quite amazing considering when I was a baby I was known as Lola Long Legs because I was so tall for my age!!

At Last I Am 4!

Today I am four at last and it is my special day. I went to Nursery and I have everyone some sweets to celebrate.

Then we had a family party and had another cake. Here's some of the presents I received:

Suds & Surprise Dora from Nanny Maur
Charlie & Lola books from Mim
Baby Alive from Mummy & Daddy
Fifi Teaset from Nanny Pat
Tinker Bell Stationery Set from Aunty Tania

Double Birthday Date

First, we went to Coby's party where we played on a trampoline and bouncy castle before heading upstairs for sausage and chips. We then played Pin the Tail on the Donkey which was good fun even though I didn't win.

Then we headed to Jasmine's Party which was held at Monkey Bizness which is a really big play area and ball pit. It was great fun then we had our party food and met A MONKEY. I was a bit scared at first but I was ok.

Standalone Farm Christmas Fair

Today we went to the Christmas Fair at Standalone Farm. I saw Father Christmas and told him what I would like for Christmas and I had to tell him my name because I was face painted as a beautiful butterfly so he didn't recognise me!!
