It was a little one sided

As only one of the parties involved could actually work the canisters

The advent today was christmas themed bath ducks because they were dangerously close to running out of bath toys.

And just for fun, a picture of this turkey in the tub too!

And the advent calendar says …

Make gingerbread houses!

Except I clearly don’t know enough about engineering to build gingerbread houses.

Glue gun FTW!

Also, enlist another set of hands.

In the end, the girls were super pleased with their creations.

And that’s what counts. (Or so I’m told. Honestly though, these things make my OCD self all twitchy.)
