It’s December and that means one thing…Christmas is coming! I feel we can now officially start thinking properly about Christmas. This week it has definitely taken over.
I always know Christmas is on its way, when I have stood outside in the cold, rain and wind playing Christmas carols with my brass band in a shopping centre, hence, that’s just what I did at the weekend. Call me crazy, but for some bizarre reason, I love it! Though I did have to wear 5 layers in an attempt to stay warm!
The usual chocolate advent calendars came out and the nativity one which I treasure, but this year we are also doing an activity a day calendar. So far we have sung jingle bells together, written a christmas wish and drawn a Christmas tree. It is a wonderful way to engage children in simple Xmas activities each day.
The Christmas shopping is getting there, the children are almost done, I just need to think more about the other family presents. I have also booked our Christmas grocery shopping delivery slot. At 6am I just about managed to grab the last daytime delivery slot available, what time do I need to get up to secure this in future?
I have made my Xmas cards and I am very pleased with them. These doily Christmas tree cards were so simple, once you’ve figured out which way the folds go.
The countdown has begun!
