"Mom! We forgot to leave carrots out for Rudolph!"
That's what Hudson says every night when I tuck him in. He's SO excited for Christmas. I think an advent calendar would come in handy for us. Since I have to have it done (like today) I'm opting for an easy version. But I'm all ready making plans for next year. Here's a quick round-up of my favorites (pssst--most of them have tutorials if you're in the same boat as I am):
|Embroidered Felt, by Purl Bee|
|Baby Sock Advent, via Martha Stewart|
|Mittens, by Oliver + S|
|Magnetic Advent, by Twig & Thistle|
Our snowflake-making was interrupted by a doctor's visit for baby C. She had a "learning-to-walk" injury which resulted in two black eyes. She's tough--and now she looks the part. Despite the setback, she's not giving up on the whole walking thing.
