This advent calendar; making a Christmas decoration every day get met with mixed enthusiasm. Some times the ladies are very enthusiastic and can’t stop making. Other days, other things are more important and I get a minute of their time. Or it is all about cooperation, as was today. We decided to wrap some small blocks of wood in wrapping paper, to hang in our tree.

Wrapping a bit of wood in wrapping paper as a decoration in a tree is not a hard thin to do, but as I said we worked together and that made it a bit more interesting. The youngest loves cutting and Ellen loves sticky tape, so the jobs were easily divided. But getting an almost 3-year-old to cut a straight line is quite a task (and didn’t work). Ellen has never wrapped a present, but she did quite a good job. Perhaps she can help me wrapping up the rest of the real presents….
