Good morning, it is Friday! You cannot see me but I am dancing a jig. I am so tired, and it has been such a long two weeks that I need a break. I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow!

For today, more of all things Christmas. After the next few weeks I may have to rename the blog because for the month it is ALL about Christmas at my house and blog.
I do not have any little ones but I have fond memories of my advent calender. My brothers and sisters and I eagerly awaited the opening each day of one little box where there would be a piece of chocolate to help us count down the 25 days until Christmas.
Now days, I do not have a calender but I do make one for my niece. I collect small gifts all year for my sister and my niece, wrap, label and then ship the 50 little gifts to them to open. They are placed under a little tree and each morning they each pick one to open.
I have found some wonderful calenders on Pinterest and in the catalogs that arrive by the truckload each day in my mailbox. These are a few of my favorites.

Do you have an Advent calender for your children or grandchildren? Did you have one as a child?
Tell me, how is your decorating coming along? Do you have plans this weekend to do a little decorating? Or will you be doing something else exciting, traveling, reading, baking or relaxing?
Whatever your plans enjoy your weekend!
