My 5 year old was up at 5.30 <weeps> to discover a small blonde girl in her Playmobil Advent calendar.

I have more civilised Yankee candle opening scheduled for this evening. fgrin

DDs aren't up yet which I am very surprised about as they were VERY excited. They both have Playmobil calendars and the elf is hanging upside down in the inglenook 😁

M&S beauty one here - Philip Kingsley's elasticizer. I think I've used this before, but I have short hair so I don't use many hair products.

Dd (4) is chocolate so she opens hers after dinner. Is that mean? grin

Santa's head. A bit macabre, I thought.

I think it's supposed to be Jabba's sail barge. It's not one of Lego's best micro models tbh, but then they've done all the more recognisable models in previous calendars and it's not easy designing something with so few bricks to work with.

Mine got a chocolate coin today.
It's a home fill calendar and we're doing the activity card thing but it's not going to be everyday. Some days it's just a coin!!

Elf on the shelf is arriving on the 12th so I only have to do 12 ideas! Haha

A lovely copper star cookie cutter that I had admired in a shop a few weeks ago. DH is going all out this year. DD got a Lindt chocolate ball and DH a key ring for his new but very second hand car! Advent calendars and stockings are the main event in this household!

I forgot about our fuzzy felt calendar!

We got a snowman in that. My 8 year old was surprisingly taken with the fuzzy felt thing.

DHs was a starwars lego micro model, DSs was a starwars micro machines star fighter and a chocolate coin. I don't have one sad

Ohh, the copper cookie cutter sounds awesome!

I'll have to drop hints for Christmas, I love copper.

5.30am though, I'll be a wreck by Christmas Eve at this rate grin.

DS got a chocolate Bambi in his Thomas the Tank Engine calendar from my dad (here on hols).

When he comes home from school he'll open the one we bought him from Aldi: Lighteni g McQueen, he'll get sometjing crafty every day (crayobs, stamp kit, stencils). We thought we'd get that rather than chocolat . .. then Grandad brought one from UK grin
