We have a wooden cupboard full of tiny drawers. Each drawer contains a little ornament to hang on the little wooden tree. The girls take it in turns to do this, but both girls get an advent calendar in the post from Nanny Owl, and this year Kev bought me one too. Zoe’s features a cathedral with a market outside, Kitty’shas got lots of ducks on and mine is a night time scene with the stable in the middle.

I dream of a perfect Christmas, filled with fun and laughter, friends and family together and wonderful food. There would of course be snow and singing and music, games and a great film on the telly. Everyone’s presents would be exactly what they always wanted and the day would be totally magical and happy.

the envelope contains one of this years cards and the journalling reads:
I’ve done it again. I bought cards in the January sales (when I still had some left over from last year) kept them safe in a cupboard all year and then went and bought some new ones. So now I will have some left over, then buy some in the sales and repeat the whole cycle again. I guess the moral of the story is that I like buying cards more than writing them!

We have had snow ! Both yesterday and today have seen snow flurries, though it’s soon melted away. I love to watch it fall, and even play in it - but I hate taking the girls to school in it , so my winter weather wish is that Iwould love it to snow for Christmas, but not until the school holidays start !
A link on Shimelle's class forum led me to THIS fantastic site where you can create your own font from your handwriting - and its free. Really useful for journalling as you can size your writing to fit and simply delete any mistakes before you print. It will also be great for digital pages too :)
The journalling reads:
I hereby declare that I will make the time to create a page of memories every day starting on December the first until Twelfth Night.I will try to capture the essence of Christmas in our household through memories of past Christmases, events of this Christmas and hopes of Christmases to come. Some of the events may seem smaller than others but will hopefully remain in our memories with the help of this festive journal- reminding us of our Merry Christmas 2008 !
