I am here!

What a busy month! I can not believe how fast this year has gone, it is just a total blur! I haven't had a chance to blog at all! What I have been doing is organising my 30th (which was a great nite), trying to get handmade gifts for christmas done, and just being a working mumma. Gosh, it is full on!

I made the kids an Activity Advent calender this year rather then filling it with sugar. There were a few days where I didn't have an activity so they got a treat but here are a few of the things we have done:

  • Put up the Christmas tree
  • Donated toys to the Sallies
  • Went to the Temple Christmas lights
  • Made and decorated Christmas cookies
  • Shared the cookies with school friends
  • Make cards
  • Go to Farmers and choose a decoration (they will get there own box for the decorations and build up a collection)
  • Take a Christmassy family photo 
  • Drop a present to a neighbour
  • Make Glittery playdough
  • Go to Trees at Meteor
  • Drive around Harrowfield (neighborhood that gets right into Christmas)
  • Watch a Xmas movie
  • Read Xmassy books
  • Write a letter to Santa
  • Put out snacks for Santa 
  • Open a present on Christmas eve
What Christmas traditions have you started up for your family?

Right! I have to get in the kitchen and finish making presents!

PS. Mum and Dad are in Wellington getting the house packed up ready for the big move north! Exciting!
