BB In The Bucket

BB in the Bucket, Advent fun, play

Sometimes I just do stuff, you guys.

True story.

It happens.

I don’t always share the stuff I do.

My kids get most of me, you know?

Oh sure! I share a lot of stuff online – here, there, and everywhere – but I don’t share everything.

I think this is worth sharing for two reasons.

1) It’s easily adaptable and anyone can do it.

2) It’s my way of celebrating what I love, without dissing something I dislike.

Ready?

Okay!

Ta daa!

Thing 2 finding BB, BB in the Bucket, Advent, Christmas Countdown

BB explains it well, Thing 2, reading, BB in the Bucket

BB in the Bucket

It’s December 4th and look who is here!

It’s BB! But wait. What’s this I hear?

She’s wearing a hat with a sparkly ball

There’s a sparkly scarf too, but that is not all!

BB’s so festive, she’s ready to play

So you’ll have to find her everyday.

There’s only one rule, you must not forget it

Don’t skip it or shun it or you might regret it!

When you spot BB you give her a HUG

You squeeze her and keep her as snug as a bug in a rug.

Yes, Christmastime is the Season of Hope

It’s certainly no time to pout and to mope.

Imagine, you finding such a cute thing

and having to wait and just look at the bling.

Yeesh! That would be awful and terribly bad.

I just can’t believe in something so sad.

So people can keep their elf on the shelf

I’d rather have BB, her wonderful self.

Wouldn't you?, BB, BB in the Bucket, Advent,

Wouldn’t you?

So, there you have it!

Rumour has it that BB will have a sparkly red hat with a white glittery pompom this year.

No one knows for sure though.

We’ll just have to wait and see because as I said these things just happen.

How do you celebrate Advent?

Do you have a special ritual?

Do your kids enjoy the countdown to Christmas?

How do you spend the days leading up to the Holidays?

*I cleared this with the Things before posting it here. It’s late in the game, now, but this is something you could do at any time of year just for fun. Make stuff up, guys! It’s rad!

Wonderful Winter Solstice!

winter_solstice_wp_01

I have left my prostrate position from deep inside the Peady Plague pool of powerlessness to wish you all a wonderful Winter Solstice.

It’s the shortest day of the year and while, to some, this might be one of the hardest days before Christmas – and in the middle of Hanukkah – to find any cheer at all, because lets face it the darks make the SADs so much worse, to me the shortest day of the year is reason to celebrate.

Why? Because you know what happens the very next day? That’s right! The days begin to get longer and longer days mean more daylight and more daylight means more sunshine and more sunshine means more Peady Powers because – in case it isn’t abundantly clear – I am 100% solar powered!

Just like WALL-E*.

So yay!

May this be a wonderful Winter Solstice and may the coldest season of the year find you filled with peace, love and joy, surrounded by people who love, respect and support you in all that you do! To warmth in winter and coziness in cold and cheer in the bleak midwinter.

I wish all these things for you!

*Seriously! How awesome is Spydergrrl? So awesome!
