In each card I put the activities for each day and a chocolate coin and attached them to the string and pegs like so
Then when the card has been opened then I am going to simply reattach it and we still have a pretty string of cards, even if they are all similar.
So Day one is a busy one and so far we have shopped and had our coffee with a friend. On the plus side I have got quite a few of the little presents I wanted out of the way and can wrap them later.We also bought a few cheap Christmas CDs and I am singing along to it as I type, feeling that Christmas spirit has eventually landed in our house.
Last but not least we won't forget to light our advent candle tonight. And I have swapped my tea light candles around the lounge etc with Christmas scented candles :o)
I can't wait to share rest of Advent days with Luke with the activities and treats I have planned in the run up to Christmas :o)
To finish off the day we visited the village for the tree switching on ceremony. Santa arrived via fire engine and was manic. The pics are a little blurry sorry.
Lukes bubble gun flashed different colours giving illusion the bubbles were all full of light and colour as they flew off :o)
