activity Advent Calendar (part I).

Last year I made a really neat activity Advent Calendar which was full of festive fun. This year, the best part is I can't remember what's in the boxes, so it's a genuine surprise each morning when I find out what my daily festive activity is. Here are my first few days....

Day One: Decorate your tree while listening to Christmas tunes

Day Two: Give yourself a festive manicure

Day Three: Take a silly Christmas family portrait

(I had to put this on the back burner because Tav has been working late this week. Instead, I decorated my kitchen!)

Day Four: Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol

I'm completely obsessed with Christmas and making it my own for my new family this year. I would love to know what your Christmas traditions are too - if you've blogged about it pretty please share links in the comments!
