Savoring the Season: Christmas Countdown, Day 24

{image courtesty of VintageHolidayCrafts.com}

Today we started our Advent calendar that my mom made for us several years ago. Every pocket has a little slip of paper with a Christmas activity or idea written on it.

Today's activity was to hang a Christmas wreath. This is an easy one because I have 2 fake wreaths that I made a few years ago, and we just pull them out and hang them up every year. :)
I never got around to hanging up my fall wreath this year, so it was just a matter of taking down the spring(!!) grapevine wreath and hanging up these instead. They aren't really fancy, but they add a little touch of holiday cheer. It's starting to look a little more Christmasy around here now. :)

I love the idea of having little slips of paper in the Advent calendar. We have always done little trinkets or something, but this is nice too.

It is such a wonderful time of year, getting everything ready for Christmas! Your wreath looks nice.

I have been working around here trying to get things decorated. We have a giant artificial tree that takes some doing to get up,and we have gotten that accomplished--whew! Now, everything else will feel easy by comparison.

I like you new banner on your blog!
