With only 4 more sleeps until Christmas, December has officially flown by. T’s crate is now almost empty and we’re undecided whether to keep the crate out for the year and find toys or books to keep in it, or dedicate it just for the book advent.
His last book advent, on Christmas Eve, will have an extra gift tucked alongside the book – keep an eye out for next week’s post to see what we’ve included. If you missed last week, you can find this here.
Here’s what T found in his book advent this week:
