Ok. No I have not dragged out the box of holiday decorations just yet. I will not keep up with the Jones's who were all decorated even before Thanksgiving. I won't be pushed by those retailers that set up those displays right at midnight Halloween. (RIDICULOUS!) I will wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving weekend to pull out those decorations. That is when I do it cause that is what works for us.
BUT. I will have the advent calendar hanging up and ready to go on the first eve of December. It is when the magic sprinkles start to come out. Bit by bit. I made this one last year that I was so so happy to see again. And I am not quite sure who was more excited for it, the kids or me. It was not up yesterday morning when they left for school and I could tell they were a bit concerned, so you can imagine the happy faces I saw when they realized it was hanging up on the wall last night. Lily was just told all about it before I snapped these pictures. And I think that the photos say it all!
Now...what to do for my Cards this year.....
