Ohhh December. How I love thee?

Today begins the countdown to Christmas! If you went to elementary school with me - or middle school or high school for that matter - than you KNOW I love a good count down. When I was a kid, I think my birthday countdown started around November....I mean October....OK OK September. I would scratch off each day that passed on the calendar and make sure every friend within ear shot knew how many days were left until my birthday. Luckily, I've out grown this annoying habit - almost. The point is, I like countdowns and there is nothing more fun than counting down until Christmas!

In our house, December 1st is a big day as you can finally begin opening your advent calendar that has been taunting you throughout the Thanksgiving festivities. The "Holy Grail" of advent calendars is the kind that have chocolates behind each of the 24 windows. But look what Grandma found for Grace this year...

- an advent calender bigger than Grace - FULL of chocolates!!!

As Grace is not eating chocolate yet, I guess I will just have to take one for the team and eat them. SHEESH! A mom's job is never done!
