Christmas Time!

It's beginning to feel like Christmas! I LOVE this time of year! I've got the tree up. The decorations are out. Most of the shopping is done! I am feeling so BLESSED right now!

I made an advent calendar for the first time this year. I got this idea from the girls at Christmas with the Cricut blog! They have so many wonderful ideas! I love that blog!!! I lost the number 17 somewhere. I need to make another one.

I've never made the girls an advent calendar before. They are going to flip when they realize what it is! I can't wait to share it with them! I went to the Christian bookstore and bought little things to go it. Like little Christian books, braclets, rings, cards. I bought some goodies from the school's bookfair like pencils/erasers and candies, chocolates and candy canes from WM. I hope I have at least one more year/use out of that calendar. It was a lot more work than what it looks like! :)

Tomorrow we're going to bake cookies. Can't wait!

Give thanks Banner

Here's the "Give Thanks" banner that I made for the banister at church. I had the bows made. I've already bought the ribbon and made the banner for Christmas. Can't wait to put that one up too. I love how it turned out.
