My kids are creatures of habit!!

It must be nearly 20 years since I made this …December 2010 011

and every year it comes out and the pockets get filled with lollies (sweets/candy) - one for each day of December. I’ve begged offered over the years for them to let me make a new one, a prettier fancier one … but no, this is what my “kids” want. Hmmmmm ….. My “kids” are almost 28, 25 and almost 18!!!!! LOL

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway – you could win BOTH of my new patterns - “Teatime Tabletopper” Teatime Tabletopper and “Pack up your Troubles”!!!! Pack up your Troubles Just leave a comment over here at this post before Sunday night (Brisbane time)to be in the draw :o)!!!


Oh and before I go, if you haven't seen it yet, Jenny of Elefantz has a little Christmas gift for you all!!!

You can find the pattern here on Jen's Blog - isn't she a sweety :o)!!!! Thanks Jen!!!

It's darling Joy, and I do understand them wanting that one - it's very comforting to have the same decorations and keep the same traditions.
Yes Jenny's design is gorgeous!!

Hello Joy,

Oh bless them, I think kids especially big kids really enjoy these parts of Christmas.
Happy days.

Family traditions are a super part of Christmas aren't they. It's nice when something with happy memories attached means more than a spangly new item.

Love to hear that it is not just my children that like the old and the traditions. Each year we put up an advent calendar that I made many, many years ago and like yours there is a lolly for each child. My children are 19,18,16 and 13, and a don't see it changing Karen

My daugther is 36yrs old and I have only just weaned her off her christmas stocking full of goodies and a chocolate advent calendar.Moving 350 miles apart might have had a bearing on it though!!!
