The month of November flew by and then before I knew it, December came … and the month is flying by. Hanukkah is 3 days away. And Christmas is right around the corner. The list is long but things are getting crossed off.
I’m a bit behind in December Daily. I have the photos and words for each day but the actual documentation is a bit slow. Today, I’m sharing days 01-07.
We started the advent calendar with Samuel last year and he loved it. This year, we kept things simple — we went with a Playmobil Advent Calendar I picked up on clearance at the end of last year. It’s working out great so far. He looks forward to it each morning. We just keep it on the dining table (where he eats breakfast) and he enjoys playing with it each morning.
Samuel and I went to the Lego store for the free mini-build giveaway today. He’s almost four and has decided that he’s ready for Legos. The pieces are small and he sometimes struggles to put things together, but he loves the challenge. This evening, we made a little gingerbread house.
Crazy weather in Sacramento today. I left work at 3:20 to pick up Samuel and within 5 minutes of my drive, the heavy rain made it impossible to see. Freeways were backed up and roads were flooded. It took me over an hour to get to Samuel. As soon as we got home, Samuel helped me rake leaves from the gutter to allow for proper drainage on our street. He’s a great little helper and I am so thankful for this little guy.

We pulled down our small stash of Holiday decorations and ornaments and gift wrap. Samuel is pretty excited that “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.”
The “Bring on the Joy – ‘Tis the Season” masking tape in the Ali Edward’s December Daily kit is pretty bad ass. I love it and am using it a lot … I will definitely be sad when I use it all up. And I can’t get enough of the gold stars.
I’m still looking for the perfect journaling pen. Haven’t found one I really love but the Uniball Vision Elite is becoming a favorite.
Day 08 is in the works. And so are days 10-12. I have a story for day 13 — but want to live out the rest of the day before I decide on which story.
Thanks for visiting!
