It's Christmas!

I love Christmas time, and things have been especially fun this year with the girls. They're really into all the fun holiday stuff this year and we've been having a good time doing the activities from the Advent Calendar. I've had a few people ask about it, so I thought I'd post a few pictures. It was SUPER easy and cheap to make. I used a piece of metal that I already had, paper from my stash and some sticky-back magnets. I used this box tutorial, placed a magnet on the back and a piece of paper inside with a fun holiday activity to do every day. They're all EASY and cheap. Did I mention I like cheap? Seriously, today we wrote a letter to Santa and yesterday it was have hot chocolate. Tomorrow's is have a picnic by the Christmas Tree.
Speaking of tree's, here she is. No star, because I can't find one I like and we're about 150 ornaments shy of the usual tree, but I opted to leave off all of the glass bulbs. They're so pretty, but I do hate sweeping them up, so they just had to go. And this picture is priceless. Yes, we're classy people who don't make their children wear clothes at home and Sophie got a hold of mine and Brent's stockings and decided to wear them. I love it!
