We had a morning of side-along crafting in prep for the Carnival (which was C-to-the-RAYZAY), and little Miss E swooped up a whopping four prizes for her entries. She was pretty thrilled, even if she did think that the cupcake she had herself decorated was actually also her prize. *Shrug*. Don't mind if I pocket your cash then, Kid? JOKING!!! I let her spend it on horse-rides and crazy jelly glow rings :-D
Intermission: Some flowers. A beauteous arrangement, from a dear friend. And also, stolen from my 'garden' (a prettyish kind of wilderness).
Annnnnnnnnnnyway. I am quite besotted with these cards (middle by Garland, flanked by Eleanor's masterpieces), in a ridiculous 'it can't just be me that thinks these are amazing, it's not just because they're my kids, THESE CARDS ARE AMAZING!! LOOK AT THEEEEEEEEM!'
I assure you, should you step inside my home, I WILL force you to look at these cards, and you will be expected to wax lyrical.
And the grand finale: A decorated bike. Girlfriend will never lose her bicycle. And in case you forgot, each of these Advent activities was foreshadowed by this guy...
