Finally

It's done! I finally finished my advent calendar and I LoVe it! It's rather large, about five feet, but I wanted it tall enough for big pockets. Taylor got to pick out the first card and thought it was so cool. We do it before school so they have something to look forward to all day. Today's said "watch Elf and eat popcorn" so that's what we did. I made taco soup for dinner then we all plopped on the couch, popcorn bowls in hand, and watched the entire movie together. Such a fun evening together and I am looking forward to many more this month.

I am so impressed! And I love the idea of doing thing together instead of just chocolate like my kids are getting in their advent calendar!
I might have to copy the idea!

Wow, it turned out great! Good job little miss crafty. My kids love Elf, actually I love it too. It's such a great movie. What a fun family night. Taco soup sounds yummy. It must be this dreary weather. Soup is the best this time of year.

Way to go Jen! I love it. Elf is Audrey's fave movie. She laughs and laughs when he gets attacked by the racoon :)
