They all enjoyed this, but now the pressure is on to eat it! I think tradition is that you leave it til after Christmas, as the house is somewhere for the gnomes to live during the festive period.
Hopefully, they will be very happy there.
Remember Ethan started showing an interest in knitting? Well the other day he picked it up again, remembered how to do the knit stitch, even noticed that when I was doing a purl stitch that it wasn't the same as what he knew. I was impressed. Just look at the concentration on his face!
