The cats have come out of hiding a tiny bit. Last night, Mr Siili and I wiggled a toy and white-face played with it. She doesn’t want you to try and touch her, but she will play some. Black-face has let me touch her once or twice, while she is under the bed. Yeah, we don’t have names for them yet, so we are calling them white-face and black-face. Original, huh?
White-face watching me. This is as far as she will come downstairs, that we know of.
I finished a couple of heart decorations today and added heads to two angels that I started 5 years ago. Pictures to come, someday.
As it is December and the countdown to Xmas is on, it is advent calendar season. I don’t remember them much, if at all, in my childhood, but here they are big. You can buy chocolate filled, toy filled, pictures only and any other fillings you can think of, usually for a price. There is also the endless diy versions too. I don’t want to feed my kids more sugar, nor buy toys for them, so I set out to create my own advent calendar with mostly crafts to do and moments to have with Paxlet and Tadbit. What we have done so far…
A gingerbread igloo and penguins with eggs.
Joulutorttu (Christmas tortes/pastries)
Glue colored rice on stars.
Glitter and glitter-glue on stars.
Paxlet cut out his stars. I cut Tadbit’s. Then we decorated them.
Xmasy stickers on stars.
I gave them a set of bracelets each (,50 cents each 🙂 ).
There were glowsticks in this. We went for an evening walk with the glowsticks, then they got to take them into their bath to play.
