Advent day 13-16

Day 13 - In the morning we had a nice time at home and when Aaron napped, Caleb and i made some Christmas cakes (which were basically just fairy cakes but we'll call them Christmas cakes for the purpose of advent blogging).

In the afternoon, Caleb's nursery class were shepherds in the whole school show. They sang a really cute song and all looked adorable. I was proud of my boy. He's on the left nearest the camera with the brown tshirt (back to me though).

Day 14 - We made our good old salt dough ornaments to hang on the tree! Flour, salt and water, easy peasey.

Day 15 - We went to the toy store 'Hamleys' in Glasgow to have brunch with Santa! We went with friends from the nursery and it was lovely. The kids all had something to eat, Santa arrived and read them a story, they coloured in some activity sheets and decorated cookies. The elves were there to help, Caleb's favourite being 'crazy' elf. They all then got to go up and speak to Santa individually and got a wonderful goody bag of  Hamleys toys. Despite all this Christmas loveliness, Caleb's favourite part of the day was the train ride up to Glasgow. I could have saved myself some money and just rode the train all day with him ;-)

Day 16 - today, we  will paint the salt dough ornaments.

Love your salt dough ornaments! I never seemed to be that organized with my sons when it came to the holidays. I was always running around like a chicken with its head cut off!
Don't you just love those Christmas pageants? They were always a favourite of mine leading up to Christmas.

What a fun day. The outing to see Santa and the elves helping color sounds delightful. Have a wonderful Christmas. Sue
