the last day of november, oh my!
the girls decorated their rooms for christmas and i am in love with those egg carton twinkle lights we made!
the advent calendar is out and ready for tomorrow.
i remember how magical it was to open those little windows each morning to find a candle or a sleigh or a bell.
i am not sure if my girls find it as exciting as i once did but even hannah, at almost twelve, asks for one each year.
they do however get excited for the advent calendar that i started hanging a few years back which is just simply a string of envelopes with the date on each one. each envelope includes a little slip of paper with a holiday activity we will hope to achieve that day.
i make things simple and easy.
tomorrow we will take out all of our christmas books, many of which were mine when i was a girl which makes this one of my favorite activities!
this month i plan to include you on each day’s envelope.
