We are just back from a little beach holiday, booked at the last minute to Phillip island.
Immy turned two and we went to the local Carols night at San Remo, it was pure country town carols.
We stayed right to the end and even though the local children were not very inclusive, Popps' Christmas spirit could not be dampened. She hit that stage with her electric candle, introduced herself to anyone she could and sang her heart out.
The band didn't seem to be able to pick the audience tone too well though, no Rudolph and some very quiet preschoolers when the lead singer started with, "we know you know this one" and launched into "Away in a Manger"... Actually, no they didn't know that one.
But there is something very special about eating fish and chips, Santa whizzing around on a fire truck, listening to a big band play Christmas carols and sitting on the beach while you celebrate your little girl turning two and your big girl growing in confidence.
It was a perfect night.
