Advent adventures

The Advent calendar we made last year is back up and P has been getting very excited about checking that day's pocket every morning. The types of things which have made an appearance are: stickers, a Christmas tree decoration, a musk stick and today it was a Schleich zebra. The pièce de résistance is a miniature snow dome which I'm saving up for Christmas eve.

This morning she asked for the first time who was putting the things in the pockets. After a beat I said, 'elves...Santa's helpers'. When that was met with a blank stare I said, 'the fairies came' and her face made the most wondrous expression I've ever seen. So there you are, it's all the fairies' doing. Amazing how much fun Christmas is with a toddler.
