2018 advent calendar day thirteen

It’s not Friday so the 13th must be a lucky day after all! We all feel pretty lucky to have our advent calendars to open and Christmas Day to anticipate, anyway.

Enjoy day thirteen in our countdown!

I like tonight’s hidden picture of an elf painting a bauble for someone’s tree – our press out bauble was even easier to make though!

Lego City

The Lego City advent calendar today produced a girl eating an ice-cream – something we can relate to doing at Christmas time!

Lego Friends

My daughter enjoyed putting together a simple wreath from her advent calendar tonight.

Christmas book

Heading back Down Under, our book tonight is Santa Koala… so I suspect there will be singing along with reading as we laugh at the antics of the bush animals while Santa snoozes!

So, moving onto day sixteen of the Christmas count down!

The Lego city advent calendar opened onto a policeman tonight, much to my son’s delight – “that’s part of my police set in the calendar!”

This is how the Lego is presented most days…

“And yours is part of your café theme – you’re getting quite a big café together now!” he told his sister after she found a sweets display stand in her Lego Friends calendar. It is basically a small table with a multi-layered cake and a lollipop on it.

Special treats – cakes, lollipops!

And I must say that it finally registered to me tonight that the ‘ice-cream stall’ was actually a cake stall – the little ice-creams are actually cupcakes! And if you add that stall with the oven, mugs and tonight’s display, it is adding up to a little café which makes perfect sense for skiers and skaters!

If you missed what the calendars gave us yesterday, you can catch up on day fifteen. Read the introduction to our Lego advent reviews for the whole picture.
