The kids are counting down for xmas now, it is so close they can almost taste it….
Well, perhaps that is their daily advent calendar chocolate.
No, we are not religious at all, the advent calendars I found for them star the cast of Angry Birds and have been bought for my sanity! When I have been asked “how long is it until xmas?” a hundred times, and it is not even December, I am dying for the advent calendars to start so the kids can keep track themselves!
The big day must be getting close now as we found a Christmas beetle the other day. The kids were thrilled, but I think the Man was the happiest one of us all. It has been a long time since he has seen one of these guys at xmas so I think it might have kick-started a bit of seasonal spirit in him!
