Maddie's Advent Calendar.

This year Maddie, ever the angsty teen, found it really hard to find an advent calendar that she liked. Barbie and Dora just don't cut it anymore, and the cutesy Christmas themed ones made her want to barf. So I put it to her that perhaps we could make a custom one. We melted chocolate and hardened it into little mould's shaped like hearts, stars and Christmas trees, then wrapped them in foil. Maddie chose 24 celebrities, plus a pic of herself, printed and cut them out. We stuck them onto the chocolates, and then onto some card. 
 Number seven was her special request, a copy of the Last Sacrifice novel by Richelle Mead due out on the 7th of December.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
