Advent calendar day two…

Onto day two of the Christmas countdown – the excitement is building which is not so productive on a Sunday night, but still enjoying it!

Ornament calendar

Ringing in Christmas! The hidden picture for day two was Merrit and a green-clad elf friend ringing traditional church bells, while we made a bell ornament.

Lego City

While there are a number of Lego City kits based on police and ‘baddies’, it still surprises me to find a thief in advent calendars, especially on day two! It did not worry my son in the slightest and he is happily planning this thief joining his other Lego thieves and baddies after Christmas (we keep the advent calendar Lego together for Christmas).

Day two and the Lego friends calendar produced a suspiciously large guitar! We’ve had guitars in advent calendars before, but this one is bigger than the Lego characters so I’m not sure who is meant to play it!

Christmas book

With Tinkles arriving yesterday, a Christmas elf story was a must read today! We have selected The Christmas Elf as our book tonight.

Days ten & eleven – Lego advent calendars

As day ten was Saturday night, I left that review until tonight so day ten and eleven are together 🙂

The Lego City advent calendar produced a girl dressed for ice-hockey on day ten – my son was very excited to see her! The girl was on the side of the box to show the size of Lego pieces so he has been expecting her…

While my daughter was ecstatic to put together a piano from the Lego Friends calendar – she has been looking forward to the piano as it is on the box (and I hoped it was more than just a prop on the background!). I love the fact there is sheet music and how the keys look real – it is based on a white grill piece as the white keys and the gaps look like black keys are there!

Tonight, my daughter was extremely excited to find a purple guitar on a stand – purple is her favourite colour so she loves this guitar. “And it’s even a plug-in guitar, Mummy!” Both children are now planning a Lego band with their combined instruments and musical equipment from this advent calendar.

My son was pleased to get a bare tree (back to the winter concept of deciduous trees) with some Christmas lights on it.
