Well, Christmas is coming. Not too much longer. Our house is all decorated (though I still want to do a little more) and the girls started their Advent Calender today. Everyday they get a little chocolate and either a present or something to do with me (usually craft). I started this one year when I realized I had bought way too many present to give them all on day – so thought it would be better to spread it out over the month. We’ve done this ever since – though they now get more activities than presents – and they love it. I’ve bought nearly all my christmas presents and have started to make plans for this years Christmas card. I’m feeling rather relaxed and looking forward to the next few weeks as we build up to Christmas.
