Three turtle doves
I am a self-confessed Bah Humbug. Usually I spend all of Christmas bagging out Sister B for all of her festivenss, meanwhile putting off my Christmas shopping and refusing to 'catch up for Christmas' with people.
But things seemed to change for me last year, and I am now embracing Christmas with enthusiasm. Except the 'turtle' doves.
The home-made sock-style Advent calendar has been the centre-piece for Christmas cheer. I wrote little activities for each day and tucked them in the socks. We have been busily singing carols, visiting the Christmas lights, baking Christmas treats and making Christmas crafts.
Today's activity was writing Christmas cards and we used one of our Christmas crafts as the starting point.
The kids have been loving it. Each day they get out of bed bursting to open the sock. They have to wait for everyone to be up and Nugget proudly reads out the task. It sure beats dosing them with chocolate every morning and I have to say that this Christmas celebration thing has been lots of fun.
Tomorrow we have a knock-knock joke.
Hanna partridge in a pear tree!
I crack myself up. Have you got any good knock knock jokes? How is Christmas rolling for you this year?
