Christmas Decorations 2: Christmas Wreath Finished

What a great start to advent (and of course the start of summer in Australia too)! After a rather half-hearted attempt to finish the Christmas wreath at craft night on Friday night, I powered through early on Saturday morning and decided to just get it up. I had unfortunately lost the little butterfly that I had made (later turned up in the car) so this wreath is slightly different from its original design but I'm still really happy to have finished it. I know this is going to sound very funny but for anything other than knitting, I'm really all fingers and thumbs so this was a bit of a feat!

In between the hectic social agenda involved with kids in December, this weekend has been unashamedly about getting ready for Christmas and it was a delight to have the boys so keen to participate. We decorated the house on Saturday - two Christmas trees - because one is never enough!
 If you look closely above, you may be able to make out the knitted slug and egg as well as the flower decoration drawn by Little B. I'm hoping to perhaps add a few more knitted decorations by the end of advent depending on the other Christmas knitting. Second Christmas tree (well, Christmas branches) below has some baubles on it that haven't seen the light since 2006, before Big B was born.

The boys also decided our reindeer needed to pull a sleigh, which they drew and placed strategically between the reindeer.

Now all that's left to do is the Christmas knitting....GULP.
