December 23rd

Huh, what a busy day I have had! That is why I am telling you about it this late. It all started early this morning when my doorbell rang. It was Anabel, we had agreed to meet at my house.

- Lovely to see you, Anabel! It is great that there are two of us, I have quite a lot of stuff, these himmelis are pretty tricky to carry, and then all my presents...

- I took all my things to the festivity-house already, just before I came here, so I have two empty paws!
- That was so clever! Let's see, how do we get everything...
- I took a sledge too, so we should be fine!
- Fantastic! And luckily I only got two himmelis left, Adele took one to the Meadow-upon-river Mill and Bernard wanted one for the new Post Office. I think I will leave my basket home and load it all here...

- Oh my, looks a bit... wobbly! But here we go...
- Let me help you too, Anna, and huh, luckily we are quite close already!

We finally got to the Riverland Festivity-house, and it looked great! Bernard and Barney had done great job with the spruce twigs!

We had decided not to have a tree but lot's of twigs, and everyone can hang up their own decorations, stockings and even presents there. I wanted to be the first to go and hung up...

...the stocking I made for my baby niece! We do not know her name yet, but as the tradition in our family goes, Bibi's and Bart's sister will have a name with B!

- That is the sweetest stocking, Anna!
- Thank you so much Anabel, and now let's get busy so we will have everything ready by this afternoon!
- Alright, let's start with this big table...

... and then these chairs!

And from here I think I  will reach the ceiling too to hang my himmelis!

And we worked and worked and had Brita, Adele and the boys helping us too, and by the end of the day we got our Christmas Dinner-room all ready! We will all get together there tomorrow, 24th, and I wish to see you there too!
