my place and yours :: advent

Our activity advent has begun! Big Owlet took the initiative of folding little origami cups again this year and we have been placing a little note with a suggestion for an activity inside each day. We've done this for a few years now and it is starting to get a little ho-hum, so I'm thinking we might try and spice it up a little... maybe introduce an element of surprise for us and some more exciting activities, if I get organised to think about it sooner than bedtime the night before... I just can't believe we're here, in December already!! Amazing! I'm very much looking forward to a relaxing Christmas with good friends and my lovely Huz and our owlets. So blessed!

Advent activities so far... 
* have a treasure hunt
* buy a christmas tree
* paint everyone's toenails

See other peeps getting festive over at Punky & Me.

Here's us getting festive with our advent calendar in 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010. You can wander around the month of december for each year and see a bunch of fun stuff we've been up to. xx


  1. Oh I can't wait until Punk is old enough to be put to work on the Christmas crafts...! ;)

    Thanks for joining in Lovely, Merry Christmas!

  2. We are doing an advent calendar for the first time this year now that our little one is three. I get you on the night before thing. We have been cutting out little felt shapes,and putting them in the calendar which he gets out and puts on the Christmas tree each morning. So far, so exciting. :-)

  3. That's a simple but very effective Advent Calender!

  4. Gorgeous advent calendar! I particularly like 'paint everyone's toenails' as an activity. Might have to steal that.

  5. I love an advent calendar that doesn't involve chocolate! So amazing!!

  6. I need to brush up on all this advent making for my Great Grand Baby Belle. It wasn't around when my girls were little. Looks beautiful and fun too.

  7. I love your origami envelopes. And painting toenails? My boys would love that! ;)
