Chocolate Royal Mini Puds!!

Afternoon everybody,

I have been following  Kerry-Anne's "Simply Christmas"  at Shabby Art Boutique.  I really like her idea of Advent Bags. (As read in her post Do you promise not to peek?)  The idea is to have 24 bags made up and opened every day.   So this year we have tried it, and it has been a real hit.  (We have all loved it!)  We all have the chance to think of six activities each and place them in the bags.  (We keep it secret until the day or night before.) Today my daughter's idea was to have breakfast all seated together. With hubby off to work early and kids usually out of bed later we never sit down to breakfast on a weekday.  Dad declared bacon and eggs!!!  We were all up bright and early and all able to sit down to breakfast together. Another example was Barefoot bowling and a bbq. (Outdoor lawn bowling) The kids loved this. A couple of nights ago we made the Chocolate Royal Mini Puds that were on Kerry-Anne's blog.  Find the post here   Our Puds need a bit more TLC in preparation!!  Not to worry we will try and make these again tonight.  Making these puds, and Truffles (Also from Kerry-Anne's Blog) were an activity from our advent bags.

Thanks Kerry-Anne for a fantastic idea.

Have a good day
