...time to put the lights on the tree.
I guess that means Christmas really is less than a month away!
Here are a few more pictures from the weekend (taken with the better camera)
Here we all are on the roof, along with Crispy relaxing in a cushy sofa
in the lobby.
Just finished dinner- amazing roast beef with Yorkshire pudding almost (!) as good as my mother's (they let the centre be a little soggy like it's supposed to be). Jackie had wonderful lamb served on a bed of polenta.
Crispy has been at the "Children's Banquet" since 5:15 and we go get him at 9. It turns out there are only 2 other kids there- the 2 that Crispy met in the pool this afternoon and persuaded to sign up for it. Apparently they are having a wonderful time as we just ran into the other 2 kid's parents down by the fireplace and thay said they had been in to check up on them and they were playing some elaborate game and told them to come back ina hour!
If we can summon up the energy me and Mrs. Creosote will head down for the dancing in the lobby in a few minutes- but I can't guarantee we'll dance!
Jackie & I finally went to bed around 12, the kids were still up and talking. They woke up at about 7- one slept on the floor, two slept on an air mattress and one slept under one! It took us about 2 1/2 hours to get them up, dressed and packed up, and Jackie has taken them for breakfast at the diner (brave girl) while I stay here and clean up and go to work upstairs.
All in all, I think, a success.
