::advent calendar::

i heart advent calendars. usually i just resort to buying the cheapo cardboard/chocolates ones at trader joe’s. (actually i bought one the other day).

when i saw this one in the ballard designs catalog, i just HAD to have it, but couldn’t justify spending nearly a hundred bucks for it. i asked andrew if he could make one. {of course he could; he’s a jack of all trades, but could he do it by december 1?). instead…i found this one at target for $39.99; now it’s marked down to $29.99. what a steal! it matches our holiday decor perfectly!

andrew and i agreed that he would take odd days, and i would take even. yesterday i opened up the first day to find a lovely poem by hubby. i have put in similar items (i won’t reveal for fear that he’ll read this) and candy for j, however i don’t want him to have TOO much candy. if you have any {inexpensive} ideas for a little one, do tell please!

i also found these really great ideas at black eiffel and at skip to my lou. is more than one advent calendar too much?
