Ho Ho Ho!

My mom made the girls a new advent calendar. Isn't it the coolest?!

And we've been busy celebrating all month. The girls are both really into the whole Christmas season this year - all of it.

Looks like y'all hard having a wonderful December! This weekend we hope to (finally) get an Abby picture for a Christmas Card.

Very fun and lovely Advent calendar. And is your Partylite mantel piece serving as your advent wreath? It looks like you went to wrangle your own wild tree. As the daughter of Christmas tree farmers, I wholly support!

Rob, we are! Good for you with the Christmas card. Please don't be offended that you won't get one from us; we're taking the year off. Can't wait to see Abby!

Flatflo, that's a great idea; wish we'd thought of it! (Perhaps that would have justified the expense of buying the thing when I promised myself I wouldn't spend much money on candle stuff.) We're using an advent wreathe Ellie made in Sunday School last year. It's . . . rustic. :-)

And we love cutting down our own tree! This year we went to a place down by Washington.

(for the record - I'm not excited about the expense and stress of doing Christmas-Letter-Mailing - but Anny won't let go of it. I told her that I would even do people-specific emails to all, and mail something to those without email. She's not relenting. Oh well.)

Rob, well, we look forward to receiving your card, then!
