Counting Down

Michaels had these cute advent calendars this year, made out of wood, to paint yourself. They had Santas and snowmen, and I bought one of each and painted them for the girls. Unfortunately the snowman didn’t turn out that well (I made the mistake of painting the numbers with glitter glue) so you only get to see a picture of the Santa. Melissa liked the snowman anyway, so it’s hers, and Sara got the Santa. They love them, and the first thing they do in the morning, is open a little door. I put chocolate in most of hem, but a few have other little surprises, like a bell necklace, some quarters wrapped in tissue paper, tiny Christmas ornaments, or a crocheted finger puppet.

  6. Thanks everyone…. but I’m NOT showing the snowman.

    Cheryl… we had our chance between Tuesday night and this morning, when it was cold enough, but of course that didn’t happen. We’re in the 60’s right now, and it;s supposed to get up in the 70’s on Sunday before dropping back in the 50’s. Stupid Texas!!
    But hey, at least it’s snowing on my blog 🙂

  7. Oh and Terri! Good luck finding them! They’ve been sold out for a while at both Michaels stores near me!
