The kids can’t wait to open their advent calendars, hung on the wall and idolised over for a week before advent and counting down the days til the first window can be torn at….
We decided that we wanted to make the first day of advent a little special and to give the kids a little bit of thinking time to help them gain a little appreciation of the things we have.

So we head out to find a beautiful spot to watch the day begin as we open our first window…..come rain, shine, frost or snow, our tradition is to start our advent being thankful for all that surrounds us.
Last year was a cold, frosty but beautiful morning as we pulled ourselves out of bed, filled a flask and headed for the hills under predawn moonlight..
This certainly beat sitting on the sofa and tearing at 1st window of December…
We drank hot chocolate as the day began and ate our chocolate in the company of a beautiful morning 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful way to start advent, and a truly lovely family tradition. Wow!
It’s nice. x
