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!
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.
