Christmas Crafts

It's starting to look and feel a lot like Christmas around here!

I put together these advent boxes from Stampin' Up! and Jake opens one every day until Christmas. It's been the highlight of each morning for him to see what's in the box for the day. It was a little challenging finding 25 small things to fit in them, and I didn't, so some boxes have a note in them directing him to where the treat is.

I made these cute little Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer holders for Sunday School and piano teacher gifts.

We have a busy week coming up with something going on each night including exercise class, Tae Kwon Do, two Christmas programs, work Christmas party, a fun night out with friends in GF and 4-H!

We didn't travel very far for Thanksgiving this year, just into town to my sisters. The weather forecast wasn't very good but turned out to be ok.

After dinner we perused the pile of sales ads from the newspaper.

Last year was my first time shopping on Black Friday and I finished all of my Christmas shopping in 3 hours. This year, I did my Black Friday shopping online. I finished most of it in an hour and felt I got some great deals!
