Tomorrow is December the 1st and marks the start of Advent - always the marker in our house that Christmas has officially started. I found a few ideas on Pinterest which I thought were lovely...
This idea was from this Norwegian blog
Love these little houses - source
And of course there had to be spots involved somewhere - this fantastic idea found on etsy
In our house the Advent calendars have been put up,
Sophie's mystery mini lucky dip gifts have been wrapped and numbered.
And Sam.... well Sam begged me to let him have a lego Star Wars Advent Calendar this year. He does love his lego, so I relented this year but fail to see how it is festive in any way!
The new Christmas chocolate tin has been filled and
the Christmas hats dusted off ready for the festive photo.
Last year we really went to town but time hasn't seemed to have been on our side this year so we will have to ease into Christmas gently - love that clementines are now on sale and taste delicious - a real taste of Christmas.
