There's rosemary, that's for remembrance.
Today's activity was to make a Christmas wreath for our front door. We decided to try rosemary for the greenery, then I cut up some red felt for some colourful leaves. I primed Fixit at the start of the month that he'd be required to twist some wire into a round for this particular task, as I didn't want to be accused of not telling him important stuff till the last minute...
Anyway, whether it was the heads-up or the fact that we were working with thickish wire that his strong hands were more suited to manipulating, it ended up being a real whole-family activity today which I think makes the wreath a bit extra-special.
Also special today was celebrating our 9th Christmas together with the Mothers Group, and catching up with my maternal relatives straight afterward.
