Snowy and Christmas’ Advent Calendar December 9th to 16th

The first thing our daughter does every morning is to run downstairs to see what Christmas and Snowy are doing and which book they have brought. The first eight days on our book Advent Calendar brought snowballs, music making, bubbles, stickers, sweetie filled shoes from St. Nicholas and while Christmas wrote cards, Snowy had fun playing the game from The Jolly Christmas Postman. After sleeping all day on December 8th there’s more action today…!

Snowy and Christmas joined The Fairytale Hairdresser and Father Christmas to watch fairytale characters ice skating. They also brought their hair brushes, maybe they’ll take their hats off so that Kitty Lacey can do their hair!

Hide and Seek with lots of Father Christmasses today. In Weihnachtsmann, wo steckst du? you have to find Father Christmas hiding on each page (like Where’s Wally?) Snowy and Christmas changed things around and hid themselves instead! Can you see them?

    I love how you are doing this. Great photos! We wrapped some, too and are sharing them – some of our books are family favorites. I’m pinning this to Stanley & Katrina’s advent book library board. 😀
