So begins the count down to Yule.
I'm no where near as organised as I promised myself I would be. The wooden advent train - still to paint it; but I wasn't going to allow that to prevent me from having a craft, trip, book, dvd etc planned for each day.
Today I planned for chocolate cookies; specifically using the mix Rye made up at the craft session on Saturday. I really wanted to do this alone with Rye though, so I waited for the minded children to have their naps; so until then, the kids played and Rye entertained with his building skills, (and occasionally frustrated when he tried to take octons off C)
This year as Rye is a wee bit older now, we'll act out this fight together.
We are surely being infected with the festive spirit here. I've had harp yuletide music on all afternoon, I'm smiled frequently at our season table and it's felt deliciously cold enough that there is, finally, a real promise of winter in the air!
And oooh tomorrow's Yule Advent Day 2 trip should be amazing!
*smile* I'll tell you all about it tomorrow/
