When the day started off by walking on a wall, we just knew it was going to be amazing.
Special. Different even. And it sure was.
ALL of us getting together around a table, girls and partners and kids, and there was not one person missing? Not one that didn’t pull out due to injury/sickness/over-commitment/boredom?
Why I never.
These things only happen like once a decade peeps. Hence the special. 😉
It was our annual KK catch-up pre-Christmas festivities, and it came nice and early on the first day of December, and the first day of summer (though summer was nowhere to be seen…)
Did we care? Nooo.
We were nice and snug and sheltered.
And then there was the item of presents.
The kids chased ducks outside and threw sticks and leaves into the Yarra outside to ‘help’ them float, and us adults chilled and bonded and watched our guys bond too.
Awww. Don’t you just love it when your guys make friends. They don’t admit it but they enjoy it too 😉
And so, a pretty perfect day was had. I love being with my gals but it’s even more amazing when we come together as couples and family units and spend our Sunday lunch together, our common tie and reason for uniting being the pubescent group who went to high school together and promised that one day our kids would play with each other while our guys would make friends too, all those years ago. ♥
And now I have new writing implements so there… (make sure you do KK with people that ‘know’ you, then they won’t get your presents wrong EVER).
The only downfall with doing KK soooo early?
The debate I’ll be having with my 6 year-old until Christmas day… because baby girl got presents too. Times 4 today.
“I wanna open my presents!”
“No, you have to wait until Christmas! It’s called patience.”
“But I can’t wait!”
“You have to wait!”
“How long until Christmas?”
“24 more days…”
Help me, please.
