So I realised last night, when visiting Jen’s blog (we met in real life in September) that because I have not yet got our Christmas decorations down from the attic yet (waiting
impatiently patiently) that we will be late with our Advent Calenders.
Last night however, I remembered I had purchased a calendar at a coffee morning a while back, from Phoenix Cards, so today, only THREE days late, we got caught up. I love that it is more about the real story of Christmas.
Each day there is a new part to add – so far we have had the star, an angel and a cow.
I will try to remember to share a photo of it when the nativity scene is complete.
My son also made this one at Cabin Boys last night (a junior section of the Boys Brigade) and he is loving playing with glue and cotton wool as he daily adds to Santa’s beard.
So do you have any Advent Calendars – either of the chocolate kind, perpetual kind or any other type?
From previous Christmas posts here are some of our previous count-downs……
I did not realize I had only photographed the Santa ones!
Finally – the one that got away!
You know when you see something and you can’t decide whether to buy it or not, then you don’t, then you can’t get it out of your head, and then they are sold out? Know what I mean?
I saw this in Dekko (love that shop) and even took a photo with my iphone, of this adorable wooden advent.
Not remotely practical, but very fun! Of course now I wish I had bought it!
