That Fast?

Did two weeks really fly by that quickly?! I have been busy with classes and trying to get ready for the holidays- I didn't mean to neglect you!

Here's a collage picture of my Holiday cards class.............everyone made eight different cards.

Also- LOOK WHAT I MADE THIS WEEK! Beate ROCKS! I mean, seriously! I followed her tutorial to a "T" cause when you make one of these for the first time, you need to do that. I'm gonna make a few more as gifts I think. Even if they can't use them this year, there's always next year, right?

My boys do the Lego Advent calendar every year, so now each of them can open a container everyday! Each round tin is filled with a slip of paper that says, "dinner of your choice", or "stay up a half hour later", or " trip to Starbucks" (that one's really for Mom, but they don't need to know that!), or "play a game with Mom, Dad, or Brother".......and so on! It's hanging in my dining room and I smile every time I look at it! If you do it in steps, it really comes together without too much stress!

That's all for today! I have to take a shower and get started on the indoor decorations! Preston and I went to a midnight showing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation last night so it was a late night! I laughed like I had NOT seen the movie a million times already! It was a special treat for Pres and a lot of fun!
Have a great day!

I am going to have to make one of these fun Advent calendars, just because you can adapt it to fit your family. Where as the one's that are out there now fit one mould...
I love what you did, and think it is beautiful :)!
