I refuse to do anything Christmas-related before December 1st if I can. That would probably explain why I didn't start putting together the advent calendar until 10pm the night before ...
Having said that, yesterday was December 1st and we already fit in a lot of Chrstmassy things. The first advent calendar bag was opened, we started putting up the lights outside, the decorations inside (the tree will have to wait until just before Christmas though), went to the girls' daycare holiday party, and took a first walk through the neighborhood to see the lights.
At the holiday party, the girls got to meet Santa and Mrs Claus (and all four of them smiled for the photo!), and both the preschool and toddler classes performed some songs. It was very cute!

|Vivian, the red-nosed reindeer ...|
Here's the first song they performed ... Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. Click here if you cannot see the video below.
|You better watch out ... Santa is coming to town!|
|This is what I get when I ask the girls to pose for a photo :-)|
