It is the first weekend in December and do you know what that means? It means it is time for us to set up our Christmas tree. Of course we, well mum really, decided that our tree wasn't big enough for us any more. Even though our tree wasn't big enough we hadn't had a chance to get another one, luckily Wayne gave us his old tree and it is bigger than ours so it was time to build and decorate.
It took forever to cover it from top to bottom with decorations, including a train track running around the base but when it was done it looked pretty good, especially when we put some presents under the tree.
When our tree was all finished we decided that it was time to go Christmas shopping. We weren't shopping for presents for ourselves though we wanted to buy presents for other kids who might not get any Christmas presents. We have been saving some of our pocket money each week to donate to a charity and what better charity is there than other kids? We opened our piggy bank and started counting.
We had saved heaps of money so we went shopping. Once we had bought the presents we took them in to dad's work to put them under the Christmas tree there, ready to be given to kids in need.
It was great to be able to help other people enjoy Christmas too.
Love AJ and Milla
