I was excited that the Brisbane Test Match against New Zealand was on - that way we were able to put out some decorations while listening to the cricket. Such a tradition for the Okelys. This year’s new decoration was opened just before 7am - a Fisher Price Little People Nativity Scene, complete with ‘toothfairy’ ‘butterfly’ (angel) and ‘alpaca’ (camel). We put up the wooden and advent trees while waiting for Daddy to get home. We put up the big Christmas Tree with Grandma and Grandad S. after tea.
