So with that said, here's this years advent.
It was a generally a really easy DIY that just took the course of several days because I was working on it during nap times ;)

stick (or whatever you prefer)

fingers crossed we make it through all the fun because there's still the other advent in Rae's room... I'm thinking about just writing book title's to each day and reading that book because that sounds like something I could handle. maybe.
and I'd like you to meet, Eve.
climbing our tree with backpack and fishing pole in tow.. we made a last minute trip to Powell's to pick up our "elf book". Rae has the plush elf on the shelf that we got last year and she named her Beans so when I told her we were going to get another elf she got really excited. Can't wait for her to find her each morning. I've given handsome full control of Eve, so I'm equally excited to see what he comes up with.
