12 Days 'Til Christmas

Can you believe it? We are less than 2 weeks a way 'til Christmas. We just got back from a wonderful ski trip to Park City, UT. We have made it a yearly vacation now that the kids are older and are able to attend ski school. I have to say that it was quite fun to challenge myself with snowboarding! I was terrified that I would injure myself because I have a rather weak back but as you can see...I'm alive and well!

So, would you like to see my project for today?

I decided to take the advent calendar and make it into a banner. And since we've been gone, my kids will be counting down 12 days. I tried to put "holiday words" together to make a word count of 12 (peace, joy, & noel) and behind each letter is a special little treat. When I originally thought of this, I wanted to put lollipops with it but since I don't have any in the house, chocolates it shall be.

I just love the holidays but it would help more if this weather in southern California wasn't 85 degrees. Don't hate me, I'm not complaining. But a little frosty weather to go with all the holiday music and decorations, would truly make it merry!

Stop by again tomorrow for more Christmas projects.
