Happy Advent

Oh dear, this daily blogging thing is a rather hard habit to break.

Yesterday, Mr Life and I received a parcel, above. (The stones are simply there to hide our address in case you're a burglar who would like to steal our parcel. I'm sure you personally aren't and wouldn't.)

It was from Daughter 2. It said on the back, "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 01/12/11!"

So we didn't. Then, when we did, we found 24 little parcels or envelopes, one for each day of Advent.

Today's had a little penguin advent calendar in it.

She's such a sweetie. She knows how much we miss her.


  1. such a cool gift. I will remember this idea for next year

  2. What a wonderful daughter-such a sweet gift! :) I, too, will need to remember it next year-or when my oldest moves off to college...

  3. Awwww. What a very thoughtful daughter! Will she be home for Christmas?

  4. What a gem of a daughter...I will remember that for next year...

  5. What a wonderful idea! I love the penguin advent did well with your young'uns obviously Isabelle.
