Welcome back elves!

Tinkles the elf arrived in our house this morning, fresh from the North Pole and Santa.

I know some elves have arrived during the week in preparation for today – I guess it is too hard for Santa to magic them all in the same day! – but they are now all on duty. I wonder if kids’ behaviour will suddenly improve 🙂

Anyway, Tinkles arrived, sitting under our newly decorated tree with Santa and a special letter from Santa…

She also seems to have brought some balls with her for the kids to play with! Has an elf arrived in your house, with or without a gift?

December and summer have arrived!

The first of December – that means summer is here and Christmas is not too far away now (unless you’re an excited three year old anyway!)

What do you do to celebrate the start of December?

We put our tree up as a family, while listening to carols of course. And being such a beautiful evening today in Melbourne, we went outside and looked at Christmas lights in our street before the kids went to bed (a bit late!)
