So this morning the kids woke up, finding a chocolate advents calendar in their "24 small presents before Christmas" count down thing from my own childhood. My mother was the best to surprise me and my little sister with little things of joy. It's a tradition, like so many, i've stolen from her. They don't get something everyday, but when they least expect it.
This first of December the sun was shining and the weather cold and crisp. No real signs of snow yet and if you ask me, it's only necessary a week before the big day. Hope you all are enjoying yourself!
