Advent activities catch up

I loved reading all your comments on my last post about Christmas stresses! Its good to know im not alone LOL

I knew i'd never get round to blogging everyday of advent but hey, i never promised to! Lets see what ive missed

Day 4 - a much more successful day of Christmas decorating. The tree is done, the lights are up inside and outside the house and look super pretty. Yay! This was mainly achieved because my parents took Caleb for a few hours, which i know defeats the point of the activity but he had a nice surprise when he got home :-)

Day 5 - We wrote and posted a letter to Santa. Royal Mail have this great scheme where you post a letter to:

Santa/Father Christmas,
Santa’s Grotto,

and you might even get something back! I took a picture of Caleb's letter but i dont want to post it here as it has our address on it. He asked for a new bike, some new dvds, a gun (!) and "a drill like they have at playgroup." We went to the postbox (in the snow!) to post it away to Reindeerland.

Day 6 - When Caleb got home from nursery he got his message from Santa video. Check this out here, Calebs video message from Santa. If you have kids you've got to do this, its so cute! Portable North Pole TV. Love it!

Today we will be making Christmas cards.

Your tree looks lovely Cheryl!

In Canada when they send mail to Santa, they address it using a special postal code H0H0H0. I think they get a reply too.

The video is so cute!

The tree looks great!

Saw your video and did one for the girls. They have been very naughty, so I made sure they were not on Santa's good list. Seems to have worked a treat as their behaviour has improved and everyday they ask if Santa has sent a new message that they have moved onto the nice list.
