25 Days of Christmas

I've been working on this year's 25 Days of Christmas for Justus and Titus well over a week now, and I am EXCITED!! :) The boys certainly get a kick out of a lot of what we do, but I think I enjoy it the most. I love planning the days, buying the little supplies/presents for each of the days, and wrapping them up and preparing the envelopes for our "events." I won't post pictures of every single day (well, who knows with me...I just might actually do that, but no promises!)...but you can follow our daily plans on my Google Calendar at the top right sidebar. OR you can get a sneak peak of the plans here:

Day 1 (a.k.a. December 1): Put up the Christmas tree and decorate it!!
