The final days of the Christmas Advent calendar were taken up by Christmas baking and preparations for a family Christmas lunch.
Julia (Miss Four) enjoyed some more Christmas cooking this week and a few simple crafts. We made lemon shortbread stars (recipe from Huggies), choc-coconut Christmas balls and mini chocolate puddings. An easy craft was lolly baubles (from Spotlight), we made Christmas crackers (inspired by All Things Kids) and Julia helped with wrapping the presents by making colourful handmade gift tags.
Christmas Day with the family was wonderful - my brother and his family travelled to Canberra from Sydney and Julia had such a lovely time with her cousins. My Mum made the best pavlova ever and the cheesecake was awesome too :)
I would like to share a few Christmas quotes from Miss Four:
- Listening to Christmas music - "Mum, is this song Away in the Danger?"
- Talking about the people in the nativity scene - "I know a song about Mary - Mary had a Little Lamb".
- Singing Jingle Bells - "Bells on cod-tails ring".
- "Mum, do you think that Wee Willie Winkie could be a helper for Santa? He could tell Santa when all the kids are in bed."
