Tomorrow's the day!

Photobucket
Ring pops, Bubbletape, Christmas tree cakes, Juicy Drop-Outs, Kit Kats, Push Pops, peanut butter cups, Kisses, and chocolate santas...it's the stuff (my kids) dreams are made of. Tomorrow kicks off our official count-down, and I am all sorts of excited. I love to hear their squeals when they discover what is hiding in those boxes. Toothbrushes are ready!

Can I be a member of your family for December? I love your advent calendar. It is too cute and fun. A memory and tradition that your children will cherish!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! I am working on our version of this advent calendar, but I hate to say that it will not be ready until half the month is over. Oh well. By next year for sure. You are seriously such a fun mom. I love these type of traditions!

oh Tara, I have been trying to make this for 2 years and I always forget about it until right at Christmas! I am almost done, I ran out of Mod Podge and then we were snowed it so I haven't made it to the house yet. Its so cute, thanks for sharing your idea!

You are such a cute, fun mom! I need to steal your ideas. Speaking of, post your list of fun activities for each day of the month. I love that one!
I can't believe you saw me at Target! I'm sad you didn't holler- but I know, why would you have known it was really me?
We will be back for three weeks during Christmas so we for sure need to get together then!
