1st December ...

Today is the 1st of December.  That means it's the first day of Summer here in New Zealand.  It is raining ... but yesterday was beautiful and hot.

Today also marks our countdown to Christmas.  Many of us have advent calendars at home and today we got to do the first window/treat/surprise.  Libby and Akshaya also had a surprise visit from an Elf this morning!  Last year their elves visited too.  They moved around the house and every morning the girls found them in different places.  Libby's elf hid in the egg basket one morning.  We are looking forward to hearing about their adventures.

If you live in Wellington, you might like to try the Wellington Advent Calendar out.  You find the date on the calendar and click to reveal a special offer.  There are lots of neat things on it.  Click here to go to the Wonderous Wellington Advent Calendar.

We are going to be making lots of Christmasey things over the next few weeks.  Today Adit was the teacher, and showed us how to make paper Santas.  He gave us step by step instructions.  Even big Theodore made one!

There are a few other children who would like to show us how to make things.  Watch this space...
