He got the hang of this Advent Calendar thing, right away.
As for the calendar itself, well that arrived, as if perfectly planned on the 1st of December, from a very clever Oma. When she started on this, I have no idea. Each bag is hand painted with a Christmas image, one more darling than the next. She even included the string and the mini-clothespins. All I had to do was fill it.
Really, this was the best surprise package from Germany I could have imagined.
