CCF Christmas party

At the moment, although the trip to Christchurch is still a bit of a "not quite sure what to expect", I do have a few answers thanks to one of the wonderful nurses at Wellington (Kate). I'm sure I'm probably getting on her nerves a bit, but it is really important for me to have as much information as possible. Part of it to discuss with Bianca before we fly on Monday. I don't really like keeping things to the last moment and I found that it is far less traumatic when I discuss things with her and she knows what is coming. What makes next week really tricky is that it will be in a place and with people Bianca's never met before.

But enough complaining.

Saturday was a great day. It was the CCF Christmas party and wow, it was great fun. There were lots of things to do.

CCF prepared a special artwork for the special guest and they wanted all the children to participate, so Bianca chose a button to stick down. It was a beautiful artwork.

There was a big bouncy castle type of thing in the shape of a big caterpillar. So Bianca went in with Sanna and with Terence. It was quite amusing seeing the people go in one side and come out the other "hey look, that worm has people!".

We met a surprise guest - it was Frankie Stevens. I've seen him on TV as one of our Idols judges and I've heard him sing before. So he answered some questions and then he sang some songs. I quite like his singing

It was also the official CCF farewell to Doctor Anne (even though she is still working until end January 2008). So she got to say a few words. We will all miss her so very much when she leaves. Doctor Anne also received a beautiful artwork that one of the parents painted.

And of course no Christmas party is ever complete until Father Christmas arrives. He made his grand entrance and I guess the presents must have been the highlight of the day for all the kids. Then we ended the day with some afternoon tea.

It was all so wonderfully done and it was great to catch up with some of the now familiar faces and also to see some of the other people we've never met before. Thank you so much to CCF and volunteers for all the hard work you put in, and thank you so much to everybody who contributed to make this day possible. It was really special!
