Christmas re-cap no 1
I have not even shown you one little bit of our Christmas and the New Year is already 3 days old. So, we put up our tree rather early this year - on the 28th and int he middle of the day to avoid the tired children unpleasantness of years past. Once again, my little perfect moment in my head - kids gently adding decorations with Michael Buble's Christmas album playing in the background did not come true. In stead of him gently singing "It's beginning to feel like Christmas" I had 3 kids singing "Silent Night" and "we 3 kings" on top of their voices. Not what I imagined - but perfect in every way unimagined. It was so sweet - but so loud.
Our little wooden menagerie serves us well and the kids love to play the scene out.
Scenes from the tree:
The advent calender was a huge hit once again and the kids waited in total anticipation to open it.The non sweets days were such hits.
