This Advent Week…

We have been having a lovely crafty week during this second week of Advent, this is our centrepiece on our diningroon table, with our stones and pine cones in the centre.

Here is our nature and Advent table in our playroom, with our donkey in the stable in the meantime and our candles that were lovingly decorated by our little ones and all our precious shells, stones and flowers and pine cones…

A Christmas gift I have been busy working on, it is a pair of fingerless gloves for someone… I have knitted the wrist area in Angora that I handspun and then the rest of the glove is knitted in a DK Merino yarn…

Everyone is happily decorating their Advent candles, we have four children so it works out quite well, each one has a turn for a week to light their Advent candle, this Sunday it is Caiden’s turn for the Animal Kingdom… great excitement, I love how much enrichment these special days bring to our lives…
Jenna and Erin’s decorated Advent candles, Erin’s represents the Plant Kingdom and Jenna’s the Mineral Kingdom…
One of our Advent gifts this week was a tea party with scones under our generously tall Oak Tree, Kye got there first….
Gathered up his feast and went to eat them in his favourite spot in the kitchen…
Our new pigs, Miss Penelope Pig and Sally Saddleback Pig… I have been thinking about adding hats to our pigs, Jenna has designed and made the first hat for Penelope, and I love it 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend everyone…
