Nesting on this first weekend in December.
We are now officially in the full swing of things for Christmas. Cue that little elf if that’s what you do, all the fun advent calendars and bucket lists.
My son reminded me our elf was due to return this week. And as much as I bad mouth that little guy (the elf not my son), it is worth it when you see how excited the kids get to see his return and find him every morning.
Another fun thing we do to countdown is this 12 Days of Christmas. It’s a fun way to do something special each day to get ready for the holidays.
We finally finished decking all the halls and I just had to show you our mantel this year. I found this mounted deer from Target and placed him inside a larger boxwood wreath I had to make it look a little more full. Then I strung some bells on twine and hung them on his antlers. The kids named him Buck and he may be my favorite thing.
I linked some of our decor in my LikeToKnowit.
I can’t wait to read it, just downloaded it on my Kindle!
