The presents were all wrapped in time. Mr Bogert is on holiday from work until the New Year, so he came along to help and to enjoy some time with Zack.

The mums (childminders, grandparents, dads etc) got chocolate log or warm mince pie with their usual drinks, and then it was time to set up the (huge) semi-circle for gift giving.
One of the mum's very kindly helped me hand out prezzies (which is good 'cos she was a little reluctant!). Each child gets a gift for their age range, a book (that we collect through the book club over the course of the year) and a mini chocolate selections tray. 35 gifts (or thereabouts) later, the table was empty, there were several small chocolatey faces dotted about, and plenty of discarded wrapping paper everywhere!

It was a lovely atmosphere, and I hope everyone enjoyed it and has a lovely Christmas break. Now, time to start planning some New Year crafts ready for our return...
*In other news, Zacky Zoom has a new charriot, and he rather likes it. He got very excited when it came out of the box and felt the need to accompany it (holding on tight to the side) as it was wheeled by Daddy through the lving room. He had a huge smile on his face. It may just be his best new toy yet!
