There is much chatter around the Advent Calendar and Scene this morning.
It's Christmas Eve! Can be heard from many excited voices.
They are all discussing what might be behind the calendar door today.
Monica is of course convinced it is Santa, so the girls suggest she gets to open the door
Monica feels very lucky to be doing this.
She reaches in....
That's it....you can do it, the girls encourage her.
What has she found? They all lean in and look eagerly.
She starts to pull out the package.
That certainly looks like what she predicted...
Yes it is Santa! She cheers, as do the other girls.
Before they can blink Monica has Santa out of the package and put together.
She holds him up for them to see...
Look he has his quill pen and gift list. She tells them.
Now where shall I put him? She asks.
Ah, down here will be good, right next to the sleigh.
The girls resume their chatter.
They are so pleased that it really was Santa behind the door today.
Of course that still means the mystery of the orange objects remains unsolved!
Charlotte thinks they look a bit like the things Dad uses to clear the ice of the windscreen...or maybe to strip wallpaper....but she really isn't at all sure, so doesn't want to voice her thoughts.
Happy Christmas Eve!
