First Day of Advent

A lady at my mum's church very kindly knitted all these little stockings and filled them with sweets as an advent calendar for my girls. I think it's lovely and they've found it all very exciting so far! I have to admit to be a slightly strict mummy and thinned out the sweets a bit and put in some stickers and changed the amounts of treats around so they don't get so many! Don't want them getting too used to all that sugar every day now do I?!

We haven't put the Christmas decorations up yet but it is beginning to feel a little Christmassy now. It is very bizarre though because that means my year long photo a day blog is almost coming to an end!


  1. I know! I don't think the children quite appreciate the work that went into it but they definitely like the contents!
