I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas….. didn’t that just happen the other week? I guess it was 52 weeks ago now!
So what have we been up to with our Christmas preparations? Well at the very start of December we thought we should put up the Christmas tree. Astrid was old enough to help this year. Astrid did closely supervise Grandma and Grandpa with their tree assembly and even made sure that Soren got to help too (although he was happy to sleep through the process!).
After the house had time to dry it was Astrid’s favourite bit, decorating! I think more lollies ended up in her than on the house, as she had to taste and approve of every selection but we got there in the end. She had very definite ideas of which lollies to use and was great at selecting them and helping to glue them on.
Once the house was coated in so much sugar that it could provide enough calories for an entire town, Astrid got stuck into making ‘snow’ with icing sugar!
Astrid was pretty proud of her gingerbread house, not a bad effort for a 2 year old!
