The excitement is reaching fever pitch in this household as tomorrow is the day that they can open the first door on their advent calendars.
It’s the one time of year that they are actually allowed to eat chocolate first thing in the morning (yes, I’m one of THOSE mean mums who only allows ‘proper’ breakfasts when it’s not Christmas!) so the calendars are even more anticipated. :-)
Which means there’ll probably be a stampede of little feet down the stairs at daft o’clock tomorrow morning in order to get at the chocolate, and I’ll come downstairs to chocolate smeared faces.
They’re equally lucky this year as they’ve wound up with TWO advent calendars each. One from us, and their Great Grandma got them one as well, so double the chocolate.
Oh, and here’s mine…
A Christmas joke behind each door instead of a chocolate to make people either giggle or groan..
