Advent

1st of December. Advent and Christmas is my favorite time of year. Here's a picture of Helene with her new Christmas pop-up book. We think she's too young for an advent calendar, so we got her a really nice book about Christmas instead.

Every year I have a big advent candle,with numbers to count down. Helene loves it, which was no big surprise. She is a classy little lady who insists on lit candles at every meal!

I love candles but I've never bought an advent one before, what a lovely idea.

I love all things Xmasy, candles, advent calendars, all the traditional things, the lot but, most of all, children make the joy of Xmas. How wonderful to have small children around at Xmas (and the rest of the year of course!)

I've never seen advent candles! What a great idea.
(I couldn't find your email address, but I want to say thanks for your comment about my Mermaid. I don't know if I will frog it --maybe to the half-way point-- or if I'll stretch out the shorter side when I wet-block... *sigh* I don't want to think about it right now).
