We're seven days into December and it has been sweet seeing the boys excited to open up a box each morning. Today's advent activity is "making a popcorn chain", which we will be doing after dinner [thus no photographs yet]. Although j informed me that he just wants to eat the popcorn. What can I say that boy has a one-track mind.
I am still working on Christmas decorations and making a little progress on my gift giving list. I've been getting a little side tracked working on some custom orders and little projects that have been on my to do list for months [like finally installing the Nelson saucer pendant lamp in our kitchen nook that I ordered six months ago]. And since I seem to be adding to our house in terms of supplies for advent calendar activities and Christmas gifts, I have a strong urge to finally purge all the fabric + craft supplies that I no longer use. I have been stuffing gallon bags of fabric scraps and boxes full of larger fabric pieces and everything will be up for sale by tomorrow evening. [I'll post a link on my blog for those interested.]
