15  EWAN’S ADVENT MESSAGE

So this is supposed to be Christmas! I’ve not seen anything special about it yet. I think Father Christmas has been replaced by Meghan Markle this year. She seems to be everywhere. I hope she brings me some good presents.  Mum got it wrong with the Advent calendar it has Santa and Rudolf on it but I think due to this year’s theme I need a Meghan and Prince Harry themed advent calendar.

16  GEORGE’S ADVENT MESSAGE

This Christmas is going to be my most exciting Christmas in the world ever. Ok, I know I have only had one previous one. But we went to Nanny’s and Grandad’s to put up their Christmas tree, last night. Us babies make out we have no memory. That is to protect ourselves. I fully remember last year’s Christmas tree it was brilliant full of interesting challenges to play with. But the tree decorations were not just handed to me on a plate, I remember having to get them myself. So, I learned to crawl. This year I can walk and just by reaching can get half of the tree decorations. For the other half I will perfect my tree climbing skills. I love Christmas, don’t you? It’s just full of adventure.
