More Adventy Goodness

The joy is still a flowing on the adventy awesomeness round these parts. :o) Today I’m letting the pictures speak for themselves….

Day Sixteen (and a gorgeous Ingrid Michelson CD which is in the car)

Day Seventeen



I’m a lucky girl right??

Day Eighteen – the boys were outside at 7.05am with their chalk pens!


Day Nineteen

If you are keen to see what I’ve been sending (not as exciting!) you can find some posts over here on Leonie’s lovely blog :o) 

Day Twenty


Day Twenty-One

and these awesome DIY decorations that are now proudly on the tree

Day Twenty-Two (and the wise men have arrived for our magnetic nativity)

 For those heading off on Christmas travels this weekend I pray safety in the journey and joy in the reception. Merry Christmas lovely friends xxx


Advent Openings

It’s been a busy week – activities and expectations rise and suddenly I realise how mush there is still is to do that can’t be done until just before….

DAY nine


 But each morning we have had the delight of unwrapping. I love the concept of this swap the joy of being allowed to open something every day, of pausing to feel blessed that someone has thought of you. Of unwrapping a gift with genuinely no idea of what might be in it!!

DAY ten


I so appreciate the work Cat put in to pairing people up who suited each other

DAY eleven (the boys smelly markers had already been squirreled into bags for show and tell!)

and Leonie’s thoughtful selections

DAY twelve


and her gorgeous hand-crafting

DAY thirteen (and more special characters for our magnetic nativity)

and her generosity to the boys (their gifts are disappearing into their room very quickly!)

DAY fourteen



Bounce got his crocheted bauble off the tree the other day just to show me again ‘this is the one I got first Mama and it’s still lasting.’

DAY fifteen (the lace is wrapped around a whole box of licorice – yum!)

10 days left until Christmas. I hope your weekend is filled with everything good.
