Day 7 of the Advent Season
The girls got the first Nativity characters as their advent calendar gifts today which went along with the bible story they heard today (pic below). In the picture on the left their little fingers point out what they got to unwrap; the eldest unwrapped Joseph and the donkey and the youngest unwrapped Mary and baby Jesus.
Thankfully I did find some strands of dried grass to use as straw which I placed on the top of a radiator to dry out further as it was picked in the rain this morning but later when I went to pick up my eldest from school I found some great stands of dried bracken, which I dried out further on the radiators and used instead.
