Advent calendar

Mark and I loathe all things Christmas (except seeing our families!), so its a real struggle to share Inigos new found joy in Santa, and Christmas trees, ornaments, etc. Weve told him that it is a celebration of the birth of Jesus, and a bit about what he means to a lot of people. Ive also told him that Santa cant come to our house because we dont have a chimney, but he will leave something for Inigo at Nannas.

But I do love his excitement, so I have decided to do a countdown to Christmas, cheapskate handmade style. Hes going to love it!

  1. I have to say, I love everything about Christmas. Even though I am totally of the non Catholic/Christian variety. This year, Im getting a Christmas tree even though it has absolutely no spiritual meanting for me except that it will look sparkly and pretty.

    Im excited that Inigo is excited!

  2. Yesterday Jude told his hairdresser that his mummy hates Christmas – insightful child. I have since however managed to convince him that I do actually love the joy he gets from Christmas and the chance to spend extra time with him.
