Last night Tony had a Christmas function to attend. In the meantime I had organised to pick Taylor up as she was staying the night so that she could come to the Christmas Pageant with us. Late yesterday afternoon I got a phone call from Tanecia asking if she could come to. Why not, more the merrier don't they say.
After picking them up I went into town to wait for Tony. We were also picking up Katie but firstly she was having her grading done for Karate. Kahra didn't know what time that was going to finish.
Once we got into town the girls and I went off to have something to eat. Tony rang shortly after to say he had finished at his function and so he met us. We hung around in the city for awhile and then decided to go to Villi's to wait for Kahra. She had rung to say that Karate was finished and that they were on their way.
After getting Katie we headed for home and straight to bed. It was later than I wanted to be home as we had to be up early in the morning. The roads were being closed off at 7.00 am and we wanted to park the car at Tony's work.
Tony set the alarm for 5.00 am (ugh!). We woke the girls up after we had had our showers and were ready to leave by 6.00 am.
We set up our spot where we were going to watch the Pageant from and the girls and I went off to Maccas to get us some breakfast. After eating Tony and I took a walk to get a paper and some chalk for the girls to "decorate" the road with. The worst part is the waiting around. You have to get into town so early to get a good possie and that usually means around 6.30 - 7.00am. The Pageant starts on South Terrace at 9.30 am winding its way through the streets and depending on where you sit it takes about 20-30 minutes to get to where you are.
The girls weren't staying with us for the remainder of the weekend. They both had separate birthday parties to go to. We dropped Katie off back to Kahra and Taylor and Tanecia back home. Tony and I went off to do some shopping and when we got back home we both fell asleep.
