This morning's stocking yielded one rainbow pencil and one picture of a rainbow alien before Audrey darted out the door to kinder. The girl has been getting right into the spirit of the advent calendar. I've been trying to include a mix of activities and small gifts (mostly of the craft supply variety... sparkly pipe cleaners tomorrow, I think we might try to make some of these - thanks for the tip Cassie!) Two days we had no time and I put in a small chocolate santa. As much as I'm pretty sure she's loving the activities and craft, I should have known what she'd prefer to find each day. This is a small exchange we had this morning: A: Mummy, do you remember sometimes the stockings have chocolate in them? Me: Er, yes. A: Do you think they could have that again? So much for wholesome family good times. At least I finished these three girls, but I think the shop update may be delayed until tomorrow night - there's someone else pushing in line to be included.
