Good Morning Friends.
Sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks. After Thanksgiving, I dug out box after box of Christmas decorations and have been holed up inside decorating ever since.
I think I'm almost done. Last year it took me the better part of the month of December to finish it all. This year I was determined to get it all done in the first week of December in order to enjoy the season with my girls.
In our home its tradition to hang the countdown mittens in the kitchen window to signal the start of the season. I like to be sneaky and hang them up bright and early before the kids wake up on December first. I find it so fun to watch their sleepy eyes light up and a brilliant smile spread across their faces.
Everyone knows what the mittens mean . . . soon we'll be picking out trees, baking up our favorite treats and wrapping presents.
Funny how simple shapes cut from felt has become such a big part of our Christmas celebration.
