Good morning. Can you believe it's December??? This year has flown by so fast. As if the next few weeks won't go by fast enough, we're going to count them down even faster with our new Advent Calendar. The last several years we used THIS ONE that I had made. After a few years though, the boxes got kind of rough looking so we made a new one!
I saw a similar idea to this in Country Living magazine and it got my wheels turning. Their bags were cloth drawstring bags, but whatever :) I picked up red and green gift bags at Michael's along with the washi tape and black numbers. Landry and I decorated the bags right up and they were ready to fill! I find the filling part the hard part, what about you? This year I went with fruit roll ups, granola bars, earrings, notebooks, markers and pearler beads. That was the nice thing about the bags, since they were a little bigger I could fit a bit more in them. The girls LOVE to countdown the days and it's so much fun to watch them open the bags each day and figure out how many days are left.
How's your Christmas shopping going? We still have a few things left to pick up, but the bulk is done. What I'm dreading is the wrapping, ugh! :) We have a busy week this week, something going on every night, that time of year, but it makes the nights we aren't busy that much better! Thank you for stopping by today and I'll see you, hopefully tomorrow!
