Advent 2015 Day One

Have you heard?  Henry whispers in Gwilym's ear.  Mum got us a really cool Advent calendar this year.  Guess what it is?

No idea, Gwilym says.  What is it?

It is knights and dragons!  Henry tells him gleefully.

You're kidding me?!  Gwilym exclaims.

No, and it is going to be such fun.  Henry tells him as he waves his arms around in excitement.

The boys go in search of the Calendar.

Wow, it IS knights and dragons.  Gwilym says as he hunts for the first window to open.

Here it is, he tells Henry.

Gwilym opens the door

I wonder what is inside?  He says as he opens the door carefully.

Henry, you take out the little gift.  Gwilym suggests.

Henry reaches in....

...and pulls out a package.

Look!  A knight on the first day!  How exciting.  Henry says enthusiastically.

He hands Gwilym the knight so he too can have a good look.

Gwilym places the knight onto the scene.

Look he looks like he is walking over the bridge.  Henry tells Gwilym.

So he does!  Gwilym replies.

The boys are very pleased with this Advent Calendar - I think they are going to have a lot of fun with it!


  1. Yay, you're doing your advent calendar again and it looks like the boys are in for a treat, though I hope the girls get to join in too. I like how Gwilym and Henry shared this first window.

    1. This is becoming quite the tradition! The boys are indeed in for a treat....I am sure some of the girls will join in....

  2. Looking like this is going to be more of a year for the lads then! 'Boys and their toys' as the saying goes! Fabulous theme though!
    Are the girls going to get a turn at opening the windows OR will it be ALL LAD'S openings for this December and then the girls will get their turn next year with a 'dollie' scene?

    1. Not quite sure what Henry has planned for this year's advent calendar...he says he has it all worked out....who knows perhaps it will be all boys...I leave it up to them to decide! ;-) Within reason of course.

  3. So much fun to read! Thanks! I'm just getting my first boy Sasha and I can't wait until he gets here!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Jane and how exciting you are getting your first Gregor soon! I look forward to hearing (and seeing) all about him!
