Eat your heart out Sniffy!

My Christmas tree has been up for a couple of weeks now in order to get the cats used to it. Seems to have worked. I went for very simple decorations this year, white lights, silver and red textured balls, and a string of gold snowflakes (sounds tacky but looks great).

My niece is an artist. She made this fantastic advent calendar for me. Ok, she had a bit of help from mom but Dara stuck on all the stickers, chose which candies went where, and glued on the little homemade pouches. She's four years old. The pouches aren't filled with those waxy tasting fake chocolates. Instead she's included mint chocolates, almond hershey's kisses and peppermint patties. I don't know if I can wait to start opening it.

Cool advent calendar! We're going to do a tree this year, but I'm not sure when yet. Soon, I guess.

I got your Christmas card today! Thanks! It's hilarious - I love the look of disgust on the reindeer's face.

You sure are organized about Christmas, and I love the little advent calendar. I could never tolerate those plastic chocolates either.

Just you wait until mine goes up. It will be spectacular - and more festive because I won't be bored of it by the middle of December.

It's Advent calendar day today - wooooooo hooooooo!
