* 121 *

I've been trying to change the header picture for the last hour or so and now my head is totally battered! What with it saying I haven't enough space.... again and then making the photo about a million times bigger than it should be but I'm finally sorted now.

We've got all four of our Advent calendars up and the Santa countdown has begun. I did want to show you what they look like but due to the fact that I leave the house when the sun is rising and return when it's setting I've been unable to take any decent pictures. So these ones are from my walk last week.
The boys are in super hyper mode at the minute and from tomorrow I will be on a major mission to get their stocking toys made and doing it without them seeing..... not an easy task I might add. I was hoping to have a really good go at them on Saturday as I had thought they were going over their grans but that is a no go now and Hub is at work so I might have to let them play on the Playstation while I do knitting on the sly. Sometimes need must.
We've also got all our Christmas reading sorted with a few new books thrown in .  What are your favourite Christmas books and films?

Your new header photo is beautiful. I know what you mean about daylight, it's good that you're working though. I think when children are young there's an amazing choice of books and films that are so much fun. Not so easy when they are seventeen and surly:-)

Love your new header photo! I can't imagine the excitement the boys must be feeling -- Christmas is so wonderful for children!

My favorite movie is Miracle on 34th Street -- the older version. As for stories, two of my favorites are Mr. Willoughby's Christmas Tree and A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote.

Home Alone 1+2 are E's favourite Christmas films, silly escapades and a touch of christmas cheer. x

The struggle with the header was worth it. LOVE the last snap.
