Happy December everyone! Around this time of year the excitement of Christmas really begins to pick up steam with Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, and then Cyber Monday craziness -- we all need to calm down a little (and so do the kiddies!) so why not create an Advent calendar to countdown the days until Christmas? When my boys were little, my mother-in-law made them each one that held a Hershey's chocolate kiss for each night. That was definitely their favorite Advent calendar!
Here's a few interesting ones I found online.
Here's a photo of the Advent wreath I threw together Sunday from things I had around the house and yard...It's definitely NOT my mother's wreath -- but it works!

Have a wonderful day! Don't forget to take some time out for a nice warm cup of tea and some time for yourself during this hectic time of year!!
