Children's Day Mass

Today we had a Children's Day mass. The kindy kids have been practising the last couple of months in anticipation of today. The hymn they performed was 'Everybody ought to know'. Princess was very excited about it, although last night when I tried to take her away from bbq party, she was having too much fun and bargaining to stay on. She even said she wasn't going to perform because I wanted her to go home to sleep and get ready for this morning. So I told her to call her Cathechism teacher to inform her that she won't be performing. Of course, having said that, she quietly went home with me, but amidst some displeasure, complaining on the way home that 'it's not fair'. Hahaha.

They were very cute and I think they all did very well. Of course there were nervous ones, and princess couldn't put a smile on her face no matter what. I think she was worried she'd forget her actions. The first communicants did a great job too with their number but unfortunately I didn't take any photos of them. 'Mary' was adorable in her specially sewn costume, and 'Jesus' refused to put his robe on. Haha. The crown will suffice.

It's party time! Wow, look at the wide spread of food! I'm happy to say that my cuppies were all snapped up. Hehe, princess being guilty of having 3 of them. Everything was lovely and the most popular being the spaghetti, baked mac and cheese with mashed potatoes, fishballs, sugar donuts and of course the sweets.

A special pre-Children's Day dinner. Thanks Karen, for the fishcakes. They are adorable. They were the first things she ate on her plate. She was of course thrilled with the set. The jelly drink she was eyeing right from the start but I insisted she ate her veggies and rice first. She didn't take too well to the sake (salmon) rice flakes in the rice. So first and last time using it then. And popped some corns for her as well. Was easy to do, thanks Pam for the tips.
