Advent Unveiling!

So here it is!!! My Advent project that turned out pretty darn cute, but took way more time than I was anticipating...as most projects do! Today was the 1st of December which started our official tangible countdown. Ben was the youngest so he got to lift the 1st tree and hand out the oh so yummy chocolate mints while Brant read about our Christmas heritage, Advent and the 12 Days of Christmas. We had to take a little pause in the scripture readings since our guide is last years and we were a day off. We'll get back to the story tomorrow! Happy Advent!

I do plan to put more winter/holiday appropriate foliage in my vase, I just haven't got that far yet...Just in case you were wondering :)!

I LOVE it!! I like your daily advent postings--keep it up! :) Are you guys coming over at all for Christmas? Our Christmas party is the 11th--that would be a good time to come to town! :)

I am impressed! Phil agreed that we need to step it up next year! I'm going to take notes:)
