This year we told Lila we were going to let her open one Christmas present on November 30.
She was pleased.
She was also pleased when she opened the present and it was a Peppa Pig Advent Calendar! For the past two year both boys have gotten advent calendars for their birthdays. Her birthday is after Christmas, so she's been kind of bummed watching them open advents when she doesn't have one. This year we changed that situation.
Lila has been so cute about her advent. She hasn't missed a single day and she immediately runs to show everyone in the family what she got after she's opened her Peppa for the day. She's gotten a ton of new characters and some accessories for them, too.
All of the new Peppas mean that we've been playing Peppa more than ever lately. So, last week when Lila didn't have school on Friday, she and I created Peppa town:
Complete with a sledding hill.
On Sunday, while I was at Bells, she and Asher extended Peppa Town and turned it into Peppa Tropolis. I forgot to take a picture while it was all set up, but they'd set up the hot air balloon ride and an office for Daddy by the door. The section with all the little lines is a parking lot! Apparently they'd run out of tape but found a bit extra by peeling up the label of the tape roll and by taking a bit from other spots so they could finish the parking lot. Pretty cute if you ask me!
The boys are pretty cute with their calendars, too. Asher's first day had the mini version of a ship he already has, which is quite adorable.
