Hey Friday, nice to see you again 🙂 We’ve got a big day ahead so I’m going to make this short and sweet! Here we go…
When we picked Arden up from preschool on Wednesday, she came running at us with the biggest smile on her face–and this in her hand. She said, “look what I made for you, Nash!” They just started working on their names in school (which totally impressed me), but I had no idea she could do this. Every time I look at this little masterpiece I get teary-eyed. I mean, would it be weird if I framed it? 😉
Am I the last person to know about Ebates? Seriously amazing! I’m so glad a friend introduced me a few weeks ago because I was able to make some moolah back on all of my online Christmas shopping….which, let’s be honest, is ALL of my Christmas shopping. Erinn even suggests shopping in stores, but making your purchases online to get the cash back through Ebates. So smart! If you’re not doing it, you can use my referral link to sign up here.
I picked up a cute little Advent Calendar at the Junque Drawer last weekend and the kids are loving it. Yesterday Arden tried her best to convince me that it was actually December 4th just so she could dig into another pocket of dollar spot goodies. “No Mommy, it IS the 4th!” 😉
I also printed off these advent bible verse cards to tuck in each pocket. Candy and toys are fun, but I hope the real reason for the season is what shines through.
I’ve been pinning lots of fun Christmas crafts and activities to do with Arden during Nash’s morning naps. This toilet paper roll stamped tree was a big hit…and next week I’m hoping to try this wreath and play a few games of Christmas Bingo. This girl loves her activities and I love that about her!
And now we’re off to see the big jolly guy himself!!! Chris and I are taking the kids to KC Moms Blog’s Mornings with Santa and I can’t wait! Nash is just a tad younger than Arden was in this picture…so I’m expecting something equally as awesome 😉
Happy weekend, friends!!!!
