It's starting to look a lot like Christmas! (WOYWW)

Guess who has been listening to Michael Buble while writing Christmas cards! I am feeling remarkably Christmassy, especially as we put our decorations up this week...this is our main tree,
and this is the little fibre optic one in the dining room as decorated by Alex without any help!
We also had some visitors this week in the form of a little wooden Mary, Joseph and Donkey, who are travelling round the families from church staying one night in each house.
Alex fell in love with them and decided to make them into stars of their own show; written, filmed and directed by him.  Not sure if the video will work, but just in case not here is the YouTube link (I hope).  Just listen to his words...they are priceless!
Anyway, you really came here for a nosey at my desk as part of WOYWW.  This week finds me in the process of making another page for my Faith Journal (and drinking tea). This one will be based around Jesus being the light of the world, but so far all I have drawn is the candle and painted everything else black...watch this space, by next week it will be finished.  I hope all your Christmas preparations are coming along well and you are enjoying Advent.  Have a nice week.
With love

How adorable to see Alex's video. He's a star himself. It's such a lovely way to spread the real Christmas story. The God Family could be a HIT!!!

I love it when children are allowed to decorate a Christmas tree without any help ... I do this every year with Charlotte she's 8 now... Her confidence at not being told what to do is fantastic and as long as they love it that's all that matters! Yea

Stunning, Caro - your young man has a lovely understanding of why Jesus came. Well done, Alex for showing us so clearly about the God family!!!
Beautiful start to your faith journal page - and what a fantastic idea to have Mary, Joseph and the donkey visit around the church.
Have a great week, this third week of Advent.

I love Alex's video and I agree his commentary is priceless. I shall post updates of my garden for everyone to see. Right now, I am getting ready to be really decadent this week and become a lady who lunches two days in a row, even though I still have all the cards to finish and presents to wrap. I am not panicking - well only a little. Hope you have a good week. xx Maggie #23

Caro, thsnks for visiting me. that video narrated by Alex is wonderful, I tears running down my cheeks, the innocent faith of children is such an example to us all. I'd like to share it on Facebook but won't do it without you saying I may.
Bless you all this Christmas.
