Countdown to Christmas

December 1, 2011 – For the first time ever I bought the kids advent calendars. Not just any advent calendar either. The Playmobil ones! The funny thing is that the first thing little e said when he saw them was “aw . . . I wanted the kind with the Playmobil toys inside!” He thought they were filled with chocolates! We got him a knight set (of course) and S got the Christmas scene with Santa manning the post office. Box one she got the mailbox and some mail!

December 6, 2011 – Since the first I have been waking up to little e’s voice in my ear, “Mom, can I open box 3?” (or whatever the date happens to be) and then spending the day listening to “I can’t wait to see what’s in box 4!!! Can I open it now?” And boy oh boy, the disappointment when box 4, which he was certain held the knight’s shield, had instead the knight’s horse and lance . . . the toy may be suitable for ages 4 and up but the concept?
