I could not get over how excited Katie was for this day to come around - almost as big as December 25! And here is why .....
Where is that number one chocolate on the advent calendar? And the second front tooth fell out so let's happily sing "all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!!"
I made this advent calendar for Katie ... make Santa's beard and then he will come "not long now Mum?" And did she dance! Literally flew around the house to carols!
The serious business of the nativity scene assembly.
The confusion of the tree assembly.
Handmade ornaments from younger years and ornaments from friends in far off places.
My battle with too many ornaments on the one branch! (scrap therapy page to follow)
And finally the last piece of all, the star placed atop the tree. Quickly followed by the very important catalogue search of toys on toys on toys!
Would not have it any other way!
