Advent calendar 2016 - day 7 and 8

Day 7 in our Advent Calendar was painting christmas baubles on the bay windows with chalk markers ! The result is great, it's a joy to see it all when we come home, or when we're inside !

It was not easy taking a proper photo by night, but well, you get the idea ! Painting on windows with such markers can be a great rainy day activity, just saying ...

Despite this serious look, Pitou is very happy, living "half & half" ... half indoors & half outdoors ...

Today's (day 8) activity was not an activity, since it was a school day, so the boys got a chocolate treat, which I forgot to take a proper photo of ... oops. My excuse is that we've had the plumber (well, thank goodness he's one of my hubby's cousins !) installing a new toilet in the bathroom, drilling the floor etc ... it's been a war scene all day long, between the awful (though necessary !) noise, the dust, and the dirt of the floors everywhere but in the bedrooms ! He's also installed a new faucet, and tomorrow will change the showerpipe. Both faucet & showerpipe that came with the house were very unpractical, ugly & not functionning so well. It was pretty much necessary to change them. Next year we'll try to get more light in this tiny & dark room with poor lights.

Anyway, too much details probably. See you soon !
