Oh Ho the Mistletoe!

Christmas preparations have been in full swing at our house the last few weeks and the girls are loving it! It has been so much fun watching them enjoy all of the Christmas to-dos and it feels like the big day can't get here soon enough!!

My DIY advent calendar for the girls. Every morning when they wake up, they run over to the calendar eager to see their little present for the day! I filled up the last week of the calendar with the best prizes (after taking these pictures) and they keep begging to open them. It has been an unintentionally great lesson in waiting, but the main purpose is to help them count down until Christmas!

We also got a special delivery from the North Pole!

Anna named her Ballerina Belle and sometimes Mommy and Daddy remember to move her every night. Sometimes we sneakily move her while the girls are distracted with breakfast. It has been fun though and Anna loves finding Belle in the morning...sometimes Maddie even beats her to it!

The mistletoe - a new addition this year. Kissy kissy!

A sampling of our Christmas cards - the other window is full too and Anna likes to point out all of her friends.

I hope all of your Christmas preparations are going well too - what a fun month!
