December is really here!
just like that... we're standing in it!
yes!
we're ready to embrace all the gifts... the unseen kind...
and begin the countdown to His birthday!

because we love tradition... and the fun of it all...
it was time to kick off our advent calendar.

with our faithful ladder in storage...
i needed to think of something else... and fast... i was way behind.

cheap muslin bags and iron on numbers to the rescue.
i came across these bags too... sO cute...
but i was too torn on color... so... i went the natural route.

been gathering treats over the last two weeks.
the majority... darn near all... i grabbed for a dollar.
my favorite spots... hobby lobby and michaels.
thinking... they're gonna love those polka dot shoe laces!
they're so cute!
and for the few things that didn't fit...
a new christmas book... fun new game... craft books...
there's a note inside... that'll lead them to the surprise.  :O)

i had so fun making them.
stUffiNg them!
kept smiling... thinking about them oPeNinG them!

 and yes... if the frame looks familiar... like a couple posts ago... :O)...
you're right... i used mr avocado frame again.
he is becoming awfully handy!

look... can you see my tiny reflective shadow... waving at you!
ha!
sometimes the silliest things amuse me! 

i didn't make a 25 this year... usually do... i think.
on the hunt for a special something to put in there.
if i can find one... it will remain the tradition... always there... in that special 25 spot. 

the girls were giddy yesterday... arriving home from school... to find the countdown.
all those numbers in a row... waiting just for them.
so happy!
big 'ol smiles!
makes my hEaRt smile!

hAppY dEcEmbER yall!
here we go!
the jolly countdown begins!
wheeeeee
