Christmas and Snowy’s Advent Calendar Dec 1st to 8th

Our two new Advent friends have arrived with our Advent crown and their first book choice. My daughter has christened them Christmas and Snowy, they’ve barely left her side all day and have been a huge hit so I think we’re in for a fun Advent!

Rica und ihre Freunde feiern Weihnachten – a story for Advent with a window sticker for each day. By Christmas we will have a Nativity scene on our window.

We found Christmas and Snowy writing their Christmas cards. They must have been inspired by bringing The Jolly Christmas Postman.

Christmas and Snowy found the cheese so that they can celebrate Cheesemas but did they find The Great Big Cheesy Diamond when they read Mouseton Abbey?

The Night Pirates was Christmas and Snowy’s choice of book today. They were also accompanied by a rather mean looking pirate who doesn’t want to share his treasure!

      I’m like your husband, my mind is constantly thinking up the next idea. I’m not sure who is having more fun, me or my daughter 🙂

    What a lovely idea! Can’t wait to see what other books your little friends will come up with!

      There are so many lovely books for them to choose that they will probably need to stay longer than Advent ;)!
