Day Nineteen – Elfie, what a star! Lots of present wrapping at the wrapping station, photos of presents under the teepee coming soon.
Day Eighteen – Great time for a clear out, I donated items too, and Elfie hung out with H #seewhatididthere
Day 9 sees Elfie having out in the the table setting, with my newly sprayed baubles #onceweresilver, the Activity Advent is a present for his teacher. We gave him a Christmas mug. H helped with the wrapping, chose and tied the ribbon, and the gift card.
Hopefully we’ll start to have progress on the puzzle and the Lego soon, but in the meantime, Choice for Dinner was the old favourite McDonalds, no toy though it was lame, and Elfie is off for a ride on sparkly reindeer.
Day Six -Hart was at his dad’s so after he got home the only activity option was to play basketball with his cousin while we were there for dinner, he seemed pretty happy with that. Elfie is hanging out with Baby Hartleigh, and the bottom pic is the newly ‘coppered’ Be Merry. I’m loving my new spray booth, and this colour!
So Day One was a breeze, mostly because we had already completed it before he even opened the envelope! Day Two Hartleigh’s quest was to write a letter to Santa. To be honest I was expecting a five page list, however this is actually short and sweet.
We’ll post this off and see what Santa can do about delivering on these requests!
For those of you who follow this blog you will already know that I decided to create a homemade personalised advent calendar for my 7 year old son this year. My intention is to blog each day with what the calendar said and what we did. Here is Day One.
Yes, I cheated, we already did this! Originally I had planned for Mr 7 to do his own tree but then my OCD took over and I wanted to surprise him with a cool Christmas room. However, he did a lovely surprise from his dad, a Lego Advent calendar!
