A few scenes of Advent emerging around our home this week...
I've rearranged this mantel about five times and it's still kind of eh but I think it will stay like this until the Christmas decorations come out.
I am very detached from the Jesse Tree this year. I was even prepared to not do it at all but the littles very much wanted to so they and the husband have been doing it each night after dinner. It's not super pretty or fancy but they like it, I guess. The boys even took it upon themselves that very first Sunday of Advent to make paper chains that are now hanging next to each of their beds and gleefully torn off each morning when they wake.
Trader Joe's sucked me in and I willingly got sucked. The instructions say it should bloom in 3-5 weeks. Sooo right about Christmas time, I hope.
The candles are just hot glued onto a cheap metal plate and as I was taking the shot this happened. #irony
Our super fancy Christmas book system.
The wrapping each day thing is super cute but I kinda hate wrapping things. These will make their way into a cute basket or box. At some point.
Hope your Advent is going well!
