This year we are doing an advent calendar with a different activity to do each day. We sat down together the night before December 1st and came up with different things we wanted to do – some big, like going to a Christmas market, and some small, like reading a story together or eating chocolate and drinking tea. I haven’t taken any pictures of it yet, but will have to share that with you guys later.
Yesterday, our task was to go to the library and check out a Christmas book and read it together. So we took a walk through our neighborhood Christmas market to get to the library, where we checked out two books. It was a lovely, sunny day and we wanted to take advantage of it, and I also had an errand to run over by IKEA on the other side of the train tracks, so we extended our walk over to that side.
We saw two Christmas markets and lots of interesting things…including a blooming cherry tree, which we thought was pretty insane!
It was a really lovely afternoon!
